Learning, Living, Loving Together in Christ


We firmly believe we are made in the image and likeness of God. Each one of us is unique and special, blessed with gifts, talents and personality. Each one of us is entitled to live a life that is free from harm, a life that is filled with love, hope and peace.


Of course this is not always the case but that doesn’t stop us striving to make it so. The children in our school remain our priority and we do everything within our power to make sure that they are safe and happy, both in school and within the wider community.

We strive to provide a happy, safe and caring environment where everyone is valued. Our pupils are actively encouraged to reach their full potential, to be the people God wants us to be, both academically and socially. This will be recognisable through the children’s desire to learn and to equip themselves for life. The aim is for each child to be confident and have self-esteem, enabling them to act with increased independence and make positive contributions to society.


We recognise that children may experience or witness difficult things in their lives, and they may find it difficult to develop a sense of self-worth or view the world in a positive way. For such children, school may be one of the few stable, secure and predictable parts of their life. Other children may be vulnerable because they have a disability, or they are in care. We seek to provide all our children with the necessary support to keep them safe and build their self-esteem and self-confidence. We want children at our school to feel able to talk freely to any member of staff if they are worried or concerned, with the assurance that they are heard.


Whatever their background and culture, age, disability, gender, racial origin or religious belief we believe that children have the right to participate in a society and environment which is safe and free from violence, fear, abuse, bullying and discrimination. They have the right to be protected from harm, exploitation and abuse, and to be provided with safe environments in which to live and play.


We seek to protect children and young people against the messages of all violent extremism from any background.

At all times we will work to establish effective working relationships with parents, carers and colleagues from other agencies such as Health or Social Care.
