Vision and Values
Our School Vision is the ethos that we want for our school, it is at the core of everything we do, so that all the members of our school can flourish and be the best that they can be.
''Whatever you do work at it with all your heart'' Colossians 3:23
At Newton Longville we aim to be a dynamic community of care where all are appreciated and respected, built on Christian values, in which everyone is encouraged, challenged and inspired.
It is a place where potential can be fulfilled and where everyone has the opportunity to be the person that they aspire to be.
Our values underpin our teaching and learning and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident and happy citizens.
The Mission Statement summary for our school is:
‘Celebrate all that we are and all that we can be’
Timothy 6:19 “In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.”
At Newton Longville Church of England Primary School, we strive to offer a high quality, rounded education for our pupils in the context of our Christian values of compassion, respect, aspiration, friendship and thankfulness, and in partnership with their families and the community.
Our Aim is:
Church Schools have Christian beliefs and values at their heart.
Our school’s distinctively Christian values are:
Compassion - caring and understanding others
Respect - for myself, for others, for truth and for difference
Aspiration - to be the very best I can be
Friendship - treating others as I would like to be treated
Thankfulness - through prayer, praise and giving
These are underpinned by universal values, which include those considered to be British values, of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
We represent these on the hand to make it easier for us to remember and also to relate them to symbolism. For example, they can be used in worship when prayers are said with hands together.
