Ethos & Values

Our new Vision Statement

‘Let your light shine’

As a school community we took inspiration from the candle that we light at the start of every collective worship. We also thought about how the school is a beacon within the community and that through great education and guidance we are lighting the pathway in life and the light of God’s love.

Our Bible Verse:

Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.”
As a school community we chose this verse as it links closely with our vision and describes that all children have a talent whatever their learning ability and that this should always be promoted and supported.

Our Christian Values

L – Love;  friendship, love of God, love of learning, service to others

I – Integrity;  responsibility, honesty, maturity, respect

G – Grit;  determination, perseverance

H – Hope; aspiration, faith

T – Trust; in ourselves, the school and in God

We chose the word LIGHT so that the children easily remember this by pointing to five fingers on their hand.  We have ‘Shine Jesus  Shine’ as our school song; a real favourite with all the children which supports our ethos and values.
