We fully embrace the vision stated in the Church of England’s Vision for Education ‘Deeply Christian Serving the Common Good’ published in July 2016 of educating the whole person. We aim for our children and members of the wider school community to flourish in all they do and ‘live life in all its fullness’. (John 10:10)
- We are a church school, which believes in the importance of community, where people from all races, religions and cultures act in peace
- Our pupils, staff and families work together as a team, with wisdom supporting each other through our learning. We have hope in our challenges and in our successes.
- We recognise the dignity and ultimate worth of each person, created in the image of God, further shaped by the person, teaching and example of Jesus. We look to the future with joy.
How our values are reflected at school
At Nutfield Church Primary School, we value Community and Peace.
Our Community is extremely special. We are all members of a very special school, set in an active community where the pupils are involved in supporting local and national charities and care homes. We encourage our pupils to think of others and begin to see their place in their local, national and global community. Our children are encouraged to think of others in their own ways and we support those pupils who have special interests in specific charities. Our families have a wealth of experiences and often come in to talk about their areas of specialisms or particular roles at work. We enjoy learning from one another and encouraging the pupils to think about their place in our community. At our school your child will enjoy a peaceful environment where he/she is free to learn happily. Your child will be encouraged to learn to act peacefully and enjoy being in a calm, happy school.
We take great pride in helping our children to become Peace Makers and stand up for themselves and to others. We actively promote Peace, through our behaviour expectations, School Council, Collective Worship and through all areas of the curriculum. Our priority for peace can be seen in our strong commitment to the highest standards of behaviour and conduct for all. We pride ourselves in supporting our families hope that their children will be well adjusted, happy and helpful members of society.
At Nutfield Church Primary we value Wisdom and Hope.
We recognise the discipline of seeking Wisdom and support our pupils to understand the importance of this. Developing a deeper understanding of knowledge and truth are an important aspect of our school’s life. We aim to ensure that our children feel safe in all areas of their learning; our teachers plan for each individual very carefully. We encourage our pupils to think positively about their learning and to be well prepared for their future. Through carefully planned learning opportunities and parent support, we help our children to cope wisely with things and people going wrong and we encourage optimism about themselves in school and in their future plans. We are known for having strong relationships with our children and their families. We encourage our parents and carers to become involved in the wider life of the school.
At Nutfield Church Primary we value Dignity and Joy.
We recognize the human dignity and ultimate worth of each person within our school community and strive to ensure each individual can flourish. Our children love learning and our staff create lively and creative learning opportunities which encourage the children to be excited about their learning. We aim that our children and staff have a joyful experience at our school. At Nutfield Church Primary School, your child will experience a positive and loving environment. We are fortunate enough to have loving families and caring staff. Together we care for others both within and beyond our school community. It is widely acknowledged by staff that teaching and supporting our pupils in this special school is a joyful privilege and is one we believe should be enjoyed.
