Our Values & Aims
A Caring Christian Family Where We Grow Together
Let Your Light Shine ~ Matthew 5:16
At the heart of everything is a personalised approach to each unique individual as part of our Christian community. Our strong family ethos ensures that all children and staff feel valued, respected and grow in self-confidence. Enthusiastic and caring staff with high expectations, demonstrate care of the whole child. Through God’s guidance we encourage each and every child to let their light shine.
At Warmingham CE Primary we aim to give children an education they will never forget, rich with diverse opportunities and experiences set within a Christian context. We are very proud of our school and its family ethos. The Church school values we teach the children are the foundation of our school, taught through making links to Bible stories and Christian values, enabling our children to make choices and decisions, both in and out of school. Our strong inclusive ethos places children at the heart, enabling them to make an outstanding contribution to the school and local communities. In our latest Ofsted inspection (February 2020) the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development was recognised as a strength of the school.
"Pupils live up to the school’s Christian values of compassion , respect and forgiveness . Pupils’ personal
development is strong." OFSTED 2020
We welcome all children and their families and see every child as an individual, valuing the contributions of all children across all areas of school life. We provide a high standard of education in a secure, happy environment. We aim for children to become confident, enquiring and independent learners, ready to challenge themselves, and enjoy and value learning.
We expect children to strive for their best in all areas of school life - religious, academic, physical, artistic and recreational.
We promote and achieve high standards of self-discipline and behaviour. We provide opportunities for every child to develop the social skills of tolerance and consideration, mutual respect and care within a Christian world.
We value the vital partnership between home and school, with parents and staff working together for the benefit of the children, as we prepare them for success in the challenges of an ever changing world.
Our vision is set within the structure of our Christian beliefs and our work around ‘The Rights Respecting Schools Award’ and consequently is underpinned by the’ Convention on the Rights of the Child’.
We aim to create an enjoyable, inclusive, safe and nurturing environment that allows all children to develop spiritually, morally and socially – every child is a child of God, made to contribute to our world.
We aim to create an inspiring environment, which encourages enthusiasm for lifelong learning and establishes an expectation of high standards – knowing the way, showing the way and going the way.
Article 29 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child: Children’s education should develop each child’s personality, talents and abilities to the fullest. It should encourage children to respect others, human rights and their own and other cultures. It should also help them learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.
We aim to encourage caring, sensitive and inclusive attitudes where individuals feel secure, valued and respected by others – like Jesus showed us through his teachings.
Article 12 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child: Every child has the right to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously.
We aim to provide a broad and connected curriculum which challenges and develops the potential of each child – as Jesus needed his disciples to support and guide, so we look to others with more knowledge.
Article 28 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child: Every child has the right to an education.
We aim to develop a positive relationship between home, school and our wider community - as a family – as brothers and sisters.
Article 3 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child: The best interests of the children must be a top priority in all decisions and actions that affect children.
