Values and Ethos

 

We want our pupils to develop a sense of awe and wonder for the world around them. Therefore our curriculum will provide opportunities for independent exploration and  activities  that  encourage  them  to  reflect,  ask  questions  and  become  self-motivated learners.

******************

We want our pupils to be articulate in communicating their ideas and in listening to and considering the ideas of those around them.  Therefore our curriculum will provide frequent and effective opportunities for dialogue and cooperative learning. It will ensure that all learners are happy and secure in expressing their own opinion in a safe and supported environment.

******************

We want our pupils to be able to take informed risks in their learning. Therefore our curriculum will promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects that develop resilience in the face of challenge. It will promote cooperation, shared responsibility and  help  children  to  understand  how  to  deal  with  failure  in  order  to  achieve  their God-given potential.

******************

We  want  our  pupils  to  develop  the  wisdom  to  constructively  challenge perceptions,  opinions  and  actions  in  order  to  embed  their  learning.  Therefore our curriculum will encourage pupils to question the viewpoints and values of others in order to take ownership for their decisions and action. It will provide opportunities for pupils to see life as a partnership in which they share responsibility for the future.

******************

We  want  our  pupils  to  have  a  secure  understanding  of  and  actively practice values  promoted  by  the  Christian  faith.  These will promote respect and responsibility for each other and the world around them in the context of a diverse and inclusive British society.  Therefore our curriculum will provide opportunities to develop a sense of citizenship within the context of school, local community and the wider world.  It  will  promote  empathy  with  others  and  encourage  pupils  to  become actively  involved  in  the  local  community  and  develop  opportunities  to  support  and promote charitable organisations.
