Vision and Values

St. Luke's C.E (VC) Primary School, Endon

'Helping Lights Shine for All'

 

Mission statement

As a voluntary-controlled church school, we strive to ensure the best possible learning journey for children in our care; encouraging the development of values and attitudes, skills and knowledge, that will 'release the potential' in each individual, for the benefit of others, in an everchanging world.

As a school community of children, parents, staffs and  governors, we aspire to our actions and attiudes being underpinned by 'The 5Bs of Great Learning' (attitudes):

Be the Best You Can Be  

Principles guiding Learning & Leadership choices

We strive to enact pedagogic & leadership principles of trust, choice, collaboration and inclusion. We challenge fixed ability labelling or notions of fixed identities, which can create artificial barriers to our ever expanding potential. These principles aim to reflect the gospel message demonstrated by Jesus throughout his ministry.

Aims

Together we are working to develop learners, from their individual starting points, who are:

Successful learners, who are empowered to make informed choices about their own learning: who are prepared to take risks and give every element of learning the best of their efoorts: finding enjoyment in what they do, with high aspirations and expectations, for and of themselves.

Engaged thinkers, who can think createively and critically, seeing 'the other perspective' and are able to help find solutions to problems they encounter: maturing into active participants rather than passive recipents        

Community builders, who listen to these around them, work collaboratively for the common good and consistently see the best in others and seek to draw it out;  recognising, accepting and celebrating differences as appropriate     

Clear communicators, who are literate and numerate in all contexts and able to utilise moder technologies; able to generate, organise and evaluate their ideas , in order to make themselves understood, whilst allowing the space and time to consider the views of others  

Outward looking leaders, who value others, contribute as global citizens to the environmental and social issues of the day; developing and sharing their unique gifts and talents with others, freely and compassionately; acting as role models to all around them
