Vision and Values

The Christian faith is at the heart of our school community.

At Christ Church we all care, learn and work together for God and others.

‘For we are all God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do’. Ephesians 2:10

Our Christian Values are

Creation, Community, Endurance, Thankfulness, Reconciliation, Wisdom

The distinctive nature of our approach to education can be found in our explicit Christian values, our collective worship, our grounded Christian ethos, our carefully crafted curriculum and in our Religious Education.

We aim to provide ambitious learning opportunities, promoting achievement in every area and nurturing social, emotional and spiritual well-being.

We actively promote the children’s cultural capital (defined as the acquisition of skills and knowledge which an individual can draw on to give them an advantage in life). We will introduce them to strong role models who will impart their knowledge and wisdom to help the children engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement and to be become responsible local and global citizens.

Character and resilience are the qualities we promote within our children, developing the inner resources that we call on to help us in life. We instil these qualities in our children to make sure that they are ready to make their way in the world as robust, confident and inquisitive individuals.

We know that confidence, knowledge and skills will help them to become compassionate and well balanced young people. We want them to take their place in society as active citizens, economically independent, exemplifying the British values of equality, mutual respect, democracy, individual liberty and rule of law.

We use our six Christian values, Creation, Wisdom, Thankfulness, Community Endurance and Reconciliation, to reinforce and enrich our teaching wherever applicable.

· Creation

For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. Hebrews 3:4

· Wisdom

For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6

· Thankfulness

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34

· Community

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. John 15:12

· Endurance

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

· Reconciliation

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colossians 3:13

Our vision is inclusive and seeks to promote the whole child thrive within our Christ Church family.

Each member of our Christ church family; children, parents and staff are valued as God’s creation. We believe in full inclusion and acceptance of all and that this allows every individual to flourish.
