Our Values

One family, branching out together

‘For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.’

(Romans 12 verse 4-5)

Our Federation is a safe and caring environment which allows our community to flourish and grow. We nurture positive relationships, which lie at the heart of all that we do.

We believe in engaging pupils through challenging and inspiring learning opportunities, which are rooted in practical learning. We foster independence and resilience, enabling each unique individual to fulfil their potential academically, socially, morally and spiritually, learning to become responsible members of our society. They are:  

  • Service
  • Friendship
  • Perseverance

By service, we mean that each member of the school community seeks to ‘in humility value others above themselves’ (Philippians 2) and sets out to serve one another practically, remembering that Jesus came among us as ‘one who serves’ (Luke 22:27) 

By friendship we mean that all members of the school community aim to treat others as they would wish to be treated (Luke 6 verse 31), looking out for the vulnerable and remembering that ‘a sweet friendship refreshes the soul.’ (Proverbs 27 verse 9). The pupils thought this was particularly important given the current crisis, as it is vital that we all support one another in the uncertain times ahead.   

By perseverance we mean that staff and children alike resolve to forget what is behind and push on towards our shared goals (Philippians 3 verses 13-14), setting our faces like flint and meeting challenges with a cheery optimism and a desire to grow.
