At Bishopstone Church of England Primary School we aim to provide the highest quality education through a ‘broad and balanced curriculum’, which enables children to develop active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on their beliefs. We focus on the total development of each child: spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical. This empowers them to become life long learners and have a passion for acquiring knowledge. Our school ethos and unique environment supports learning across all areas of the curriculum.
To maintain the excellent reputation of the school, always striving forwards
To maintain a high standard of educational facilities and resources, to support the children’s learning
To ensure the children’s education is enhanced with an extensive range of learning experiences through an integrated curriculum
To celebrate every success, both academic or social
To create an atmosphere of cooperation, with respect for individual differences and community values throughout all that we do
To create an environment where Assessment for Learning feeds directly into the children’s marking, enabling them to make continuous, sustained progress
We value every child, inspiring them to achieve their fullest potential by challenging their ideas and seeking out their aspirations
We value our close links with the church, to encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of Christian Faith
We value our strong community links which we continue to develop, maintain and improve
We value the strong pastoral ethos of a small school
We value the contribution of our parents and the wider community, whilst recognising the crucial part that they play in the school
We value our staff, supporting them through continuous professional development, leading to engaging, inspirational and outstanding teaching
For our Mission and the aims on the associated list to be realised, it is essential that all those involved in the school - staff, governors, parents, pupils and those in the wider community, work together and support each other through a spirit of common goal.
Each term we focus on a different value through our collective worship and circle time. We use ideas from Unicef, Assembly Box and looking at Children's Rights. Entwined within this and central to the leading of Collective Worship are core values from both the 'Values for Life' scheme from The Church of England and more recently we have added 'Roots and Fruits' - a scheme from Imaginor.
Last term we were discussing Respect. This term our focus is on Honesty.
