Our Vision and Values

As a Church of England school, Christian values influence the daily life of the whole school. Our vision and values statement underpins all that we do. In consultation with children, parents, staff and governors we have recently reviewed our vision statement and values which can be found below. We are in the process of changing our documents and website to reflect this new statement.

Our vision is to ignite curiosity and delight in learning so we are ready for an ever changing, challenging world. We will build each other up to be unique individuals in a diverse community – showing resilience and working positively together to make every day count.’


Our core values of 
creativity, courage and compassion underpin our vision.


It is rooted theologically in ‘ 1 Thessalonians 5:11
So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind.

Saint Barnabas the Encourager is at the heart of our vision (Acts of the Apostles)

Children learn about the Bible stories associated with Barnabas and our values and they are encouraged to ‘live out’ these values through their day to day actions. 

Each half term we choose one Christian value to be a focus. These include our school specific values along with other ones. This value is the focus for collective worship and a reflection area and children are helped to identify and share examples of when they have shown this value in their day to day actions. We encourage families to think about this value through our home-school value sheets.
