Vision and Values
Our vision and motto are enriched through biblical scripture, in particular John (10:10) ‘I came to give life - life in all its fullness’ and the story of Matthew 13 in which Jesus tells The Parable of the Sower.
Learning, growing achieving...our journey together with God
Guided by our Christian values and nurturing culture, we aspire to enable everyone to grow to meet the challenges of our ever-changing world and to reach out to the wider community.
Every child is seen as a unique learner, loved by God and is equally valued and championed to achieve their very best in all they do.

Our values are linked to the themes of our curriculum and also to the significant figures that are studied.
There are also links to our learning behaviours in the Parable of the Sower:
- The thorns represent battling against a negative learning behaviours
- The path is the school environment
- The rocks represent the pupils' personal attitude.
