Aims & Values

"The headteacher has inspired the staff to work together to create a caring environment where every child is valued and all achieve their best." Ofsted

Our school values have been developed in consultation with staff, pupils, parents, Governors and members of our local community. Our values are visually represented through the school emblem of an Oak tree and are consistent with our school motto: 'Mighty Oaks from Tiny Acorns Grow'

As a Church school, Christianity is at the root of our values and Jesus' message to 'love one another' is firmly embedded in the 'roots' of our Oak. Our core value is 'CARE' - taking care of each other and our environment - and this forms the 'trunk' of our tree. Finally, the remaining ten values form the branches and represent the values that all members of our community adhere to.
