Vision and Values
Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day.
"You have planted them, they have taken root, watch them GROW and bear fruit" Jeremiah 12:2
We believe that every child should have every chance to flourish and GROW in God's love every day.
We believe that through developing children's resilience, perseverance, determination, enthusiasm and teamwork, coupled with our strong Christian values, our children will become the very best version of themselves, with the ability and desire to make a difference in the world as they grow and flourish in life.
Our GROW Values
We want everyone involved with our school to GROW and make our schools a place where everyone:
is grateful for our caring community and can feel safe, surrounded by God’s love;
works and learns together showing respect and understanding;
aims to be outstanding and has the opportunity to be the best that they can be;
all children, their families and the community we serve are welcome.

Give thanks every day
