Our School Vision
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16.
Our school vision has this Bible passage deeply rooted within. Children in our school will value everyone as unique individuals and celebrate the distinctive and diverse nature of our community and the wider world. They will aspire to greater heights and continue to flourish beyond our school community. They will use the powerful knowledge they have gained to grow into valuable citizens whilst demonstrating resilience, determination, adaptability and being shining lights to others. Our school is laying the foundations for pupils to flourish and ‘live life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10).

(1 Corinthians 13:4-5)
Ignite the light of Christ around all our children
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
God at the centre of everything we do
“In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.”
Hope and Happiness
“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
“Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
