Our Mission Statement is at the heart of our school’s ethos:
Faithfully following in the footsteps of Jesus, we serve, love and learn together, inspiring each other to excellence
Pupils are taught the importance of self-respect, honesty and fairness and are actively encouraged to work collaboratively and value others’ opinions, no matter what our differences may be. Pupils learn through their interactions with staff and each other, in the curriculum and assemblies that their behaviour has an impact on others. Good manners are modelled by staff and pupils are rewarded around the school for demonstrating politeness and care for others.
Pupils are encouraged to understand and reach out to communities who are less fortunate than themselves and each term raise significant amounts of money for charity, demonstrating their respect for those who live in different circumstances.
We support our pupils to acquire an understanding of, and respect for, their own and other cultures and ways of life. We celebrate diversity through ‘No Outsiders’ and are proud to be an inclusive community where everyone feels special and welcome.
Anti-Bullying Week 2021
Anti-Bullying Week took place from Monday 15th-Friday 19th November and the theme was One Kind Word. We started the week wearing odd socks- a great way to celebrate what makes us all unique and a reason to be kind to each other and respect each other's individuality.
In a world that can sometimes feel like it’s filled with negativity, one kind word can provide a moment of hope. It can be a turning point. It can change someone’s perspective. It can change their day. It can change the course of a conversation and break the cycle of bullying.
Our Year 6 School Councillors talked about the positive and kind things we can say and do to stop hurtful behaviour in its tracks at a KS2 House point Assembly.
Remembrance Day 2021
We respect the service, sacrifice and friendship of the men and women of Britain who fought together and today, we wear our poppies with pride.
We commemorated Remembrance Day in many different ways this year- through the creation of poppy-related craft, creative writing and reflection activities.
World War One inspired many soldiers and civilians alike to write poetry and describe and immortalise the war from their viewpoints so others could understand how it felt. Many of our pupils have found poetry a useful insight into understanding war.
