Our Vision is for our children to experience ‘Life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10).
Following the Christian inspiration of Jesus, our children will flourish and enable others to grow. Our school will be a place where aspiration and hope enable the growth of knowledge, wisdom and skills for all.
At Christ Church School, our aim is for all children to:
- Feel good about themselves
- Enjoy learning and achieving
- Be positive members of the (global) community
Feel good about themselves
Through our caring ethos and implementation of our Christian values, we work hard to help children to feel good about themselves. Talking to, and teaching children about physical and mental wellbeing is something we do daily: it runs throughout our curriculum, our Collective Worship, and our interactions with them in the classroom and in the playground.
Our Children's Groups ensure children have a voice and feel respected in school. These groups give children opportunities to express their opinions and be included in decisions that involve and affect them.
By taking notice of children's successes, strengths, talents and interests, we help them to build their resilience and confidence and feel good about themselves.
Enjoy learning and achieving
We aim to plan lessons that inspire, motivate and challenge pupils. We encourage them to be inquisitive, to ask questions, to take risks with their learning and to stretch themselves. We celebrate successes big and small with children as they journey through the learning process.
Be positive members of the (global) community
Through Children's Groups and whole school activities, we support children to become good communicators, take on leadership roles and begin to understand courageous advocacy.
