Vision and Values

Matthew 5:6

‘Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father in heaven’

Our school, based upon Christian Values provides a happy, safe environment which enables each individual to achieve their full potential and become a well balanced and responsible person.

Through our vision the children are encouraged to develop these values:

  • To tell the truth;
  • To respect the rights and property of others;
  • To act considerately towards others and treat everyone equally;
  • To help those less fortunate than themselves;
  • To recognise the good in others;
  • To take personal responsibility for one’s own actions;
  • To be self disciplined.
