Vision & Values
As we travel on our learning journey, with caring hearts and thoughtful minds, we will strive to be the best that we can be, respecting ourselves, each other and the environment and community in which we live, reflecting Jesus’ example.
Our School Prayer
We have now also made this vision into a school prayer:
Help us to protect our small family with big, caring hearts. Help us to be the best that we can be, treat each other with respect and know you are always with us on our learning journey. Amen
Our vision is rooted in Christian teaching and is particularly linked to, Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart (as working for the Lord, not for human beings) Colossians 3V23
Our School Motto
Our school motto is Learning Together, Growing Together. We use being a small school community to our advantage and provide many special opportunities where we can come together as a whole school to learn and grow together. Some of these include weekly Buddy Reading, religious services or school trips.
The aims that leaders have for our pupils (developed by staff and LGB working together) are that they:
- Develop a love of learning through innovative use of our unique learning environment at the heart of the Lake District.
- Enjoy building knowledge, skills and wisdom in order to flourish.
- Succeed as a confident, resilient individual, functioning independently and as part of a community.
- Grow in faith and fellowship, recognising our contribution to our local and global community.
- Show respect for all through a wholly inclusive approach.
- Aspire to be thoughtful and responsible citizens who contribute to a sustainable future.
Our aims are supported by our School values, which are:
Our School Values are firmly rooted and aligned with those of Church of England’s Vision for Education.
Harmony: flourishing together in peace and harmony, caring for our community and the natural world around us.
Empathy: emotionally understanding what other people feel, seeing things from their point of view, and imagining yourself in their place, both locally and globally.
Aspiration: opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.
Respect: the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.
Trust: forming the basis for all strong relationships; being honest and admitting to mistakes.
These values are promoted throughout all aspects of school life as well as being planned into our collective worship programme and being mapped throughout our Personal Development Curriculum.
