Growing a creative school community that encourages belonging,
nurtures believing and works together to become responsible members
of God’s family and the world.
Then Jesus said, ‘How can I show you what the kingdom of God is like? What parable can I use to explain it? The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed. The mustard seed is the smallest seed you can plant in the ground. But when you plant this seed, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants. It produces large branches. Even the wild birds can make nests in it and be protected from the sun.’
A man takes a mustard seed and sows it in his field.
With our caring and nurturing ethos firmly embedded in all that we do, every member who joins our school whether child or adult, like the small mustard seed, is tended to so that they grow and flourish in its broadest sense—academically, socially, morally, physically and spiritually.
It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it grows up it is the biggest of all plants.
The ethos of the school and the actions of the school community enable children and adults to grow in confidence, to develop a wide range of skills, knowledge and understanding and to be aware of their own and others’ needs, which prepares them for and interests them in the modern world.
It becomes a tree, so that birds come and make their nests in its branches.
Through their thorough and rich grounding, our children are equipped to be respectful citizens and make valuable contributions to the communities they will serve in the future.
Through our Christian vision our pupils develop a sense of:
Belonging to themselves, their families, their school, their community and to God.
Believing in themselves and in each other.
Becoming well-rounded individuals who achieve the best for themselves and for wider society
The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains, the world, and those who dwell in it.
And Jesus said, “‘If you can believe, all things are possible for one who believes.”
Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
