"Every day, in every way, everyone matters"
(The Stafrish Story - Loren Eisley) (The Lost Parables - Luke Ch 15)
Our four core Christian values are at the heart of our school, they permeate all aspects of our school life and tell you everything that you need to know about our happy and successful school!
“Educating for Life in All its Fullness”
“Life in all its fullness" (John 10: 10)
We love what we do!
We know that for our children to grow and achieve, they need to be happy, feel loved and love what they are doing! We place the well being of our children at the centre of our work and our caring staff nurture the development of each and every child. Our ‘irresistible’ curriculum is designed to inspire a real love for learning. Our vibrant learning environment celebrates the work of our children. We want every child to succeed and we want you to share in this success.
"My command is this: “Love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15:12)
Our children are happy and so are our families!
We engage children through active and joyful learning opportunities. We read, write, count, create, sing and dance to music! We aim to have as much fun as possible whilst achieving the highest possible standards. And when we think we’ve achieved everything we can, we ’Reach for the Stars’ and aim even higher.
Jesus said: ‘’I have come in order that you might have life - life in all its fullness.” (John 10: 10)
We share magical moments.
At the heart of our curriculum is the belief that to be truly successful, children need to become independent learners. They need time and space to plan the next steps on their journey of learning. We provide imaginative learning experiences; we allow our children to think and feel; we encourage curiosity and questioning; and we provide opportunities to be still and reflect.
Jesus said: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” (John 14: 27)
Faith in Action
Together, we make a difference.
We take the life and teaching of Jesus Christ as our inspiration. We care about each other. We support each other. We work closely with Furzebank Worship Centre and our families to help local communities and those further afield. Charity work is important to us and the children are taught about the importance of loving each other, just as Jesus Christ loves them.
“After Jesus had washed his disciples feet, he returned to his place at the table. ‘Do you understand what I have just done for you? he asked. ‘You call me Teacher and Lord, and it is right that you do so, because that is what I am. I, your Lord and Teacher, have just washed your feet. You, then, should wash one another’s feet. I have set an example for you, so that you will do just what I have done for you.” (John 13: 12-15)
