Our Vision and Intent
Our vision is for our school to be “A place to flourish”. This is based on John 10:10 when Jesus said "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full". This is what we want for everyone in our school community: to reach their potential, as God intended, with learning being understood as a shared responsibility. We see flourishing in its broadest sense, and not just academically, as we understand that flourishing will mean different things, to different people, at different times. We want our whole school community to flourish, underpinned by our Christian ethos and fundamental British values.
All aspects of our curriculum are accessible to all children, irrespective of their ethnicity, gender, disability, religion, faith or linguistic background. We strive hard to meet the needs of those pupils with special educational needs, those with disabilities, those with special gifts and talents and those who are learning English as an additional language. We aim to provide a rich and challenging curriculum, which stretches our children's thinking.
We are currently on a curriculum development journey, which is an integral part of our school improvement plan over the next two years. Through our curriculum, we want to unlock children’s potential and enable them to discover their interests and talents, across the curriculum, be it art, music or sport. We also want to give our children concrete opportunities and experiences, taking advantage of our wonderful local area, as well as our status as a Church school. Our vision is for children to create “beautiful work” that they share with others, and build on previous learning, making links through “golden threads”.
Finally, we want our children to develop four key skills during their time with us: resilience, teamwork, courage and independence. We also want them to have the opportunity to contribute to the community, using their pupil voice, through pupil leadership. Both of these are recorded by the children in their “Blundeston Passport”.
