Our School Value Statement

We believe that each child’s education is a unique and exciting experience and that we, parents and teachers, owe it to our children to provide them with the best education possible. Parents, teachers and children are partners in the process of education. There needs to be cooperation and goodwill, on all sides, for our children to make the most of the opportunities that will be offered to them.

Each term we focus on a distinct Christian value from the Roots and Fruits Collective Worship scheme from Gloucester Diocese . This runs as  a two year rolling program.
