Our Values

HOPE

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you.” 

—  Ephesians 1:18

We serve and support our community providing a child-centred education that reflects Christian values. Respecting the dignity and potential of each individual person and sensitive to the needs of a diverse society we strive to enhance and strengthen our values of Hope, Kindness, Courage, Integrity, Trust, Respect, Responsibility and Resilience.

 

These values are central to our school.

 

We are committed to the highest standards of academic excellence; we are dedicated to providing the best possible education for all our students by developing the knowledge, understanding and skills essential for learning and leading a fulfilled life.

Reflections

The purpose of the tutor reflections are to:

 

  1. Enable staff and students to reflect upon the school’s vision and values.

  2. Provide staff and students with an opportunity to explore the impact of faith and the teachings of Jesus in today’s world.

Character Compass

A compass is a tool that when used properly can give you the confidence to continue travelling in the right direction, even when you can’t always see the destination.  Life is full of moments of joy, pleasure, and success as well as problems, challenges, and setbacks. The daily application of our character compass helps us to develop good habits for learning through our shared values and key principles as we journey towards our vision of ‘life in all its fullness’.

 

Our vision for education is deeply Christian, with Jesus' promise of 'life in all its fullness' at its heart. Our vision is for every person in our school community to flourish, one that embraces excellence and academic rigour within a wider framework of character development for the common good of the whole community.

 

This is worked out theologically and educationally through four basic elements;
