Inspire to Aspire, to life in all its fullness
We believe that all our children are made in the image of God and as such are of intrinsic value.
At a time when our school is engaged in a journey of rapid improvement, our vision is to inspire all our children to aspire to take on new learning, new experiences, new responsibilities, new challenges to fulfil themselves and become the very best they can and experience “life in all its fullness”.
This vision is rooted in the words of Jesus, “I have come so that they have life in all its fullness” (John 10.10). When Jesus spoke these words to his disciples, he wanted to inspire them to have aspirations beyond what they saw at that moment in time.
Likewise, we at St Nicholas and St Laurence CE VA Primary School want to inspire our children to have the highest aspirations. We want every lesson, experience, and day in our school to expose children to an education without limits, full of the joy and positive engagement with learning and our community that inspire to aspire to life in all its fullness.
God created us to live in a community for one another. Every single child and every single adult is more precious to God than we can imagine. Our God would only want us to do as he would and reach out and assist one another on our journey through life. To help us in this special task our school community has chosen six values to support the achievement of our vision.
As a school community we:
Have LOVE at the centre of all we do.
Develop a sense of FELLOWSHIP, valuing relationships and recognising the important role we all play in the life of our school, community and the wider world.
Have COMPASSION for others, celebrating diversity and difference.
Show RESILIENCE, ensuring positive health and wellbeing for ourselves and for one another when faced with life’s challenges, both locally and globally.
Show PERSEVERANCE to help develop the essential characteristics and skills of lifelong learners through our Christian values.
Have HOPE so we can nurture high aspirations and the courage to live life in all its fullness.
