Being a Right’s Respecting School within the context of a Church of England School
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13v34-35
A rights-respecting approach is central to the school’s vision and values, and is seen as an integral and supportive of the school’s Christian ethos.
The school understands its commitment to provide child-centred learning within a Christian context as a partnership between home and school.
Our new vision statement – “minds to learn hearts to care” encapsulates both the school’s Christian ethos and the principles of the Convention.
Jesus welcomed the children to himself – they were important, precious in his sight and he valued them. We believe that we are all God’s children and that we are all equal in his sight. He calls each one of us by name and as such we are called to love and serve him and one another.
Ephesians 2v10” For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
Our Christian values of love, forgiveness, peace, trust, endurance, friendship fit hand in hand with the principles outlined in the CRC and are made manifest as we try and live out our faith in action.
Our vision statement is underpinned by the words of Jesus in the greatest commandment – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and love your neighbour as yourself.” Luke 10v27
