As a school community, we aspire to develop life-long learners who have the confidence to explore the world around them and grow as unique individuals. We provide a safe family environment, inspired by Christian values, in which the flourishing of each enables the flourishing of all.
‘This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine!’
‘Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.’ Matthew 5:15-16
The 4Cs are integral to everything that we and our children do, believe in and strive to be at school. In addition, all adults in our school actively promote these through a variety of specific activities.
Community - Providing a welcoming and inclusive environment where children, families and the local community unite and grow. (Bible reference - 1 Corinthians 12:26)
Creativity - Providing rich and challenging learning experiences and opportunities for all across the curriculum. (Bible reference - John 6:5-14; Feeding the 5000)
Courage - Providing a nurturing environment where children feel safe to take risks and learn from failure. (Bible reference - 1 Samuel 17:21-37; David & Goliath)
Compassion - Providing a loving, caring school family where all members flourish together. (Bible reference - Luke 10:25-37; The Good Samaritan)
As well as our school values, we also promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
Michael is an archangel in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic teachings. Roman Catholics, the Eastern Orthodox, Anglicans and Lutherans call him 'Saint Michael the Archangel' or simply 'Saint Michael'.
In Hebrew, Michael means 'who is like God?'. The Book of Daniel speaks of Michael three times. One time, it says he is a "great prince who stands up for the children of your people".
In the New Testament, Michael leads God's armies against Satan's forces in the Book of Revelation. During the war in heaven, he defeats Satan (the dragon).
Because of St. Michael’s great battle and defeat of Satan, he is regarded as the great defender of the Church.
