Our christian vision

‘I have come in order that you might have life – life in all its fullness.’ 
John 10:10

Our school vision is to ensure that God’s aspiration for us all, as expressed in Jesus’s words from John 10:10, is reflected in our aspiration for all of our children and staff to experience a full and rich life.

Our vision means that as unique individuals in the eyes of God - we seek to thrive together in life and learning.

Reverend Nigel Lacey reflects on the meaning of our schools Christian Vision. Our school community has worked hard to ensure that our vision statement sums up who we are as a family and what we believe our role is as a school.

We have high expectations for all of our children.

We foster a love of learning through exciting and enjoyable learning opportunities.
