'Learning to change the World'
We want our learners to understand and respect the world they have been given and to believe that they can change the world, for the better, through exploration, innovation and ambition.
• Exploration: engagement, research, discovery
• Innovation: practice, mistakes, solutions
• Ambition: desire, drive, challenge, achieve
Through these aspects we purposefully expose learners to the world as it is, and enable them to re-imagine how it could be by enhancing their own experience. We intend to increase their ability to engage, challenge and communicate what they know powerfully to different audiences whilst promoting Christian values and their rights as a child. We want to understand where society has come from and where it could go. Our ambition for learners is expecting them to apply skills and knowledge gained to generate real, practical solutions that will change the world around them.
Using the Global Goals as a vehicle, our enquiry-led curriculum will enable them to explore, innovate and be ambitious for the future and beyond.
We would like our learners to show curiosity and empathy, upholding values of justice and mercy in a humble way so that, through their actions, they can have a positive impact on their world and on those who share it with them.
Our vision is underpinned by Micah 6:8
'Act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.’
We will teach our learners to understand the values of JUSTICE, MERCY and HUMILITY and ensure that they are able to, along with associated values, display these values in everything they do.
Our Values Tree represents the children growing and developing, ready to branch out into the world, with values that will guide them through their lives. The children use the tree to reflect on our values, set themselves personal targets and to share their prayers.
