Vision & Values
- have a vibrant and enriching curriculum that encourages enquiring minds and inspires a love of learning.
- support children to achieve their full potential by nurturing courage, confidence and creativity
- build on our school’s Christian values, to equip children with tools for life
Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning to help create an environment which prepares our pupils for the wider-world as confident, happy and caring citizens.
Our aim is to support and encourage each child to reach their full potential and enrich their love of learning and discovery.
We strive to nurture the intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of each child and we work together with families, governors and the community to achieve this.
Everyone and everything is valued and we promote self-respect, respect for others and the world around us.
Our values inform our thoughts, words and actions. Our values are important because they help us to grow and develop. Our school has three values which we use to underpin the message of love: love of our world through the value of aspiration; love of ourselves through the value of resilience and love of each other through our value of community.
In order that the children can fully understand how the values can have a positive impact on their lives each value is embodied in a memory verse and a story from the Bible. The values form the focus of a term and are revisited twice each year. During the term the focus value will forms the focus of at least one of our Collective Worships every week. From September 2018, all the children will be learning a song with Makaton signing to encapsulate each of the values.
At Colliers Green we want children to aspire to be the people God created them to be. We encourage each child to live life in all its fullness by discovering their own unique gifts and talents to make a difference in the world.
We aspire to live out the Kingdom of God, shining out the love of Christ by loving our neighbours, caring for the needy and supporting each individual person.
We want our children to aspire to make a difference in the world around them rather than searching for material success. We encourage children to honour God’s creation by living in hope and channelling peace
The Value of Aspiration is summed up St Paul in the Memory verse:
“I can do all things through God who gives me strength.”
Philippians Chapter 4, Verse 13
Jesus’ Parable of the Sower
Our school may be small, but we need to prepare our children for the big wide world. We aim to help them see challenges not as obstacles, but as opportunities to grow and develop.
Through teaching the value of resilience we aim to help the children understand the importance of looking after and loving oneself by nurturing and developing their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual strength.
We promote many Christian values to support our value of resilience. These are known in the bible as the fruit of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
If children are aware that they’re not on their own; that they can ask God for wisdom in their decision making, this gives them a sure foundation on which to face those challenges as they grow up.
The Value of Resilience is summed up by St Paul in the Memory verse:
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”
2 Timothy Chapter 1, Verse 7
The Story of Joseph and his dreams in Genesis Chapter 37
Community runs like a heartbeat through our small school. It is a nurturing and supportive network where everyone matters much like a family.
The Value of Community is summed up by St Paul in the Memory verse:
“Let us hold resolutely to the hope we confess, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to spur one another on to love and good deeds.”
Hebrews Chapter 10, Verse 23 & 24
