'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 United Nations Sustainable Development 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.’
As a church school, values are at our core and underpin everything that we do. We 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 so that we can change the world.
Working with the House Captains, our definitions of our values are as follows:
JUSTICE - We do what is right and fair without prejudice.
MERCY - We are kind and forgiving and accept people for who they are.
HUMILITY - We work as a team and consider the needs of others before ourselves.
