If you look carefully at our school values, they were all there today in full view during our whole school biking day. I’ve added them to the bottom of this post so you can check!

Again, another excellent wider-curriculum event for our children that has the added extra good-feel factor of being with our community. Thanks to everyone for helping!

  • Everyone was Kind (what a nurturing environment we had),
  • We were Curious (and enjoyed the wonderful Tarka Trail),
  • We were Confident (many developed their self brief today!),
  • We were a big Community (tonnes of support between us all, thank you),
  • It was certainly Adventurous (and there was lots of encouragement!), and
  • Many were Ambitious (pushing boundaries and fulfilling potential!).

WE ARE KIND
Together with our parents and our church, we provide a caring and nurturing environment where we learn to value and respect others by being valued and respected ourselves.
‘Do to others as you would have them do to you.’ (Luke 6 v31)

WE ARE CURIOUS
We encourage a sense of joy, wonder and curiosity in the wider world.
‘Live life in all its fullness.’ (John 10:10)

WE ARE CONFIDENT
We help our children lay foundations for the rest of their lives by helping them develop self-esteem and belief in themselves.
‘I know the plans I have for you… plans to bring about the future you hope for.’ (Jeremiah 29 v11)

WE ARE A COMMUNITY
Our school is a community, but we are also part of a wider local and global community. We encourage a sense of belonging and responsibility towards each other, our environment and the world we live in.
‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ (Matthew 22 v.39)

WE ARE ADVENTUROUS
We’re lucky to live in a truly beautiful part of the world. We give our children a loving, nurturing space in which to take risks, feel free and get a taste for a life full of adventures.
‘Encourage one another, and build each other up.’ (1 Thessalonians 5 v1)

WE ARE AMBITIOUS
We have the highest expectations for all our children and teachers. In return we give everyone in our school as many opportunities as we can to fulfil their potential in the widest possible sense.
‘Forget what is behind us and reach straight for what is ahead. Run straight towards the goal.’ (Philippians 3 v12)
