As an Anglican Church school we seek to promote Christian values and understanding, ensuring that these values permeate the life of the school. We aim to provide a caring environment where all the children can feel happy, valued and accepted. Being a relatively small school, we hope to create a family atmosphere with strong home/school links. Academic progress is considered important, and children will be encouraged to try hard, and to work to achieve their full potential, whatever this may be. However, we are also concerned to foster the emotional, social, spiritual and physical development of the children in our care. We aim to promote their social development helping them to develop tolerance for others and the ability to work co-operatively. They will be challenged to show increasing levels of self-discipline, to demonstrate initiative and to develop a sense of personal responsibility for their own learning. By adopting a positive attitude towards the children, staff will endeavour to maximise the children’s sense of self-esteem and encourage them to value their own skills and achievements. All staff will ensure that their teaching methods and interactions with the children serve to foster the aims and values of the school.
Being a Church School
Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at Parish and Diocesan level.
The Rector within the Parishes of Kingsland, Eardisland and Aymestrey is involved with regular pastoral care and support of the school and as he inspires our worship each Friday.
The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.
The school is eager to demonstrate the inclusive and distinctive nature of its Church School status from policy to practice.
Our school has a structured approach to the embedding of shared human values. Values such as honesty, co-operation, thankfulness, courage and forgiveness are of immense importance in giving a framework from which positive behaviour can be understood, nurtured and encouraged. The challenge and encouragement of values as found in the Bible are our yardstick and goalpost.
One value each month is unpacked and explored amongst the whole school community. Parents and carers are informed about what the value for the month is through the fortnightly newsletter and are asked to discuss and reinforce the value at home. At school the value will be considered and reflected upon in assemblies, discussed in class and referred to in conversations with individuals and groups of children, It is hoped that we shall all become more alert in recognising when that value is put into practise, so that good, positive behaviour can be celebrated. We all, as school staff and parents and carers, act as significant role models for children; school staff endeavour to demonstrate these values within their day to day relationships with the children and with each other, acknowledging and being honest about the times when, with all the best intentions, we get it wrong.
