Whole School Values
Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
Our School Vision
We strive for excellence for all our children. To give them an understanding of the world that God created; their place in it, their value to it and their responsibility for it. This is lived out by our whole school community through the Christian values of service, determination, respect, forgiveness and friendship.
All of our values relate to the guiding principles of our school and the things that we think are important to us as a school. They are all rooted in scripture as can be seen above. In school our values are displayed as our Gunthorpe Garden of Brilliance. Within this each value has a flower and 6 petals showing ways that the value is expected to be demonstrated.
Each of these values is focused on each half term during collective worship so the children can see how they are biblically based but can also be lived out daily both at home and school. We regularly send home values slips for parents and carers to share how the children demonstrate these.
Our values of our great importance to us as a school and this was recognised in our SIAMS inspection:
"As a result of the school’s focus on its Christian values, priority is given to the well-being of everyone. Parents know that the staff will help their children to overcome barriers to learning and provide Christian care throughout the day"
