SOUTHROP CHURCH OF ENGLAND PRIMARY SCHOOL - VISION STATEMENT
Our vision is of a small church school where all children know each other and their teachers really well and therefore feel secure and happy as they learn and develop. First and foremost, we want our pupils to enjoy life and school. We believe that this will allow them to be curious, to work hard, to form positive friendships and to feel confident enough to relish new experiences. In our teaching and learning, we aim for excellence at all levels; we work hard to ensure that every child, whatever his or her ability, is able to realise their potential. To support this we focus each term on a core Christian value such as “compassion” or “trust”. These values are readily observable in the daily life of our community.
Furthermore, our vision is that our school is part of a broad community where parents, pupils, staff, the PTA, Governors, Church and local people listen to each other with respect and understanding.
Although we will work hard to preserve the identity of our school, as we believe it is at the heart of our personality and success, it is our vision that we will develop stronger links with other local schools, the Diocese of Gloucester and other partners so that we are part of a varied but supportive network of educational settings offering real choice to parents.
