Our Vision and Values

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Our vision is ‘Growing Happy, Caring Hearts and Minds’.
The foundation of this can be found in the Bible, John 15 v 12;
‘My command is this: love each other as I have loved you’.


Our vision has been developed from the central belief of the Church of England, that education should develop a fullness of life.

This is alongside the Exeter Diocese vision to pray, grow and serve with joy.


The school community were consulted and given the opportunity to identify key strengths and attributes of the school. During the Summer Term questionnaires were sent out to all parents, staff, governors and pupils. There was a positive response to this and overwhelmingly everyone prioritised the children’s happiness and wellbeing, alongside and integrated into learning and meeting full potential. This goes back to the central belief that the role of the school should be to educate the whole person, encompassing ‘physical and intellectual development, united with spiritual, moral, social and cultural’. We believe that RE has a key role to play.


The Christian faith is centred around the love of God and at this school we have also developed new values that are based on the GRACE of God. The values are Generosity, Respect, Agape, Courage and Empathy.


RE at Withycombe will inspire children to think about others in their class, the local and global community and be a catalyst for both courageous advocacy and spirituality, complementing each other whilst being woven into the very fabric of our school.
