Our Vision, Values and Aims

 

Our Vision...

'Sharing love and respect for learning and life, through trusting friendships'

 

Our  Values...

 We have recently undertaken an activity with the school community to select six core values that we feel are the most important for us. These are:

Love - We love God and one another as Jesus taught us.
Respect - We appreciate the importance of respecting everyone and everything.
Creativity - We recognise that we all have creative talents that should be celebrated.
Truthfulness - We always tell the truth and earn the trust of one another.
Friendship - We understand that a good friend can be trusted and is loyal.
Perseverance - We are happy to learn from our mistakes and never give up.

However, we feel that these six values that were not chosen are still important and are listed below.

Trust - We understand that we need to trust others when working together as a team.
Kindness - We are kind in our thoughts, words and actions.
Caring - We care about one another, the environment and our world.
Courage - We try to find the courage to overcome the obstacles and challenges we face.
Forgiveness - We are able to forgive others and accept that we all make mistakes.
Thankfulness - We are thankful for all the good things we have in our lives.

Vision Statement Rationale

 

Reflecting our Aims

Our school vision reflects the aims of our school. Promoting a love of learning and of life itself is fundamental to our vision and aims.

 

Reflecting our Core Christian Values

Our school vision reflects the Christian values that permeate all aspects of school life. At Broadwas CE Primary School, we are committed to developing strong and meaningful partnerships between all stakeholders. The school has consulted with pupils, parents, staff and governors to establish a set of core values that are shared and understood by everyone involved in the life of the school. Through this process 12 core values were identified. As a Church school, these values are very important since they underpin everything that we do. The four values given greatest importance by the school community are Love, Respect, Friendship and Trust and these have been incorporated into our school vision statement.

 

Sharing a School Community

Sharing has been used in our vision to reflect our distinctly Christian ethos and to recognise the school's place at the heart of the local community. We are educating and preparing our children for the future and we believe in sharing this responsibility with the whole school community. Sharing gives further emphasis to the core values of 'trust' and 'friendship', since sharing time and companionship are the hallmarks of a trusting friendship.

 

The Greatest is Love

Our vision recognises the significance of the key value 'love' and its pivotal importance in Christian teachings. There are two key passages from scripture that emphasise the importance of love. Jesus talked about the two greatest commandments:

'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength [and] You shall love your neighbour as yourself.' (Mark 12:30-31)

The value of 'love' also encompasses so many other distinctly Christian values and indeed, many of our school's core values. We see this in an extract from 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7

'Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.'

The vision statement places the value 'love' at the centre of the life of our school.

 

Learning

We understand that the school is primarily a place of learning. We are committed to a vision of ensuring high standards of achievement for pupils whilst equipping them with the skills to become independent life-long learners.

 

Reflecting our Distinctive Christian Character

Broadwas CE Primary School is an inclusive school founded by the church in 1863. Strong links with the church have been a feature of our school for 150 years and form a solid foundation for the teaching within it. We aim to deliver a high quality education to our pupils through the beliefs and practices of Christianity. Our school aims and vision reflect the Christian values that permeate and underpin all aspects of school life. These values impact directly on the way we care for the welfare of the children, parents and staff of the school community. We endeavour to ensure that the whole school community has the opportunity to achieve and grow in spiritual health, wealth and happiness.
