At Spetisbury CE Primary School we believe in giving everyone the opportunity to realise their full potential, within the context of a Christian ethos. Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens. We recognise the potential of each individual and the importance of nurturing and developing every aspect of their personality. Throughout our school trees form a symbolic pillar of our vision ; in the entrance, on our celebration wall, on our logo, around our environment. We have used this to help build our vision and tagline of:
“Growing and maturing in our learning journey”
deeply rooted vision
The book of Psalms can be seen to give instruction in a life of faith. Psalms 1 begins this instruction and also helps provide a biblical underpinning for our vision. Verse 3 shows great aspiration and alongside our school logo provides the vision for all of our school community.
” They are like trees that grow beside a stream,
that bear fruit at the right time
and whose leaves do not dry up,
they succeed in everything they do.”
All of our learning and behaviour within school is supported by 6 main values. These values focus on our attitudes and behaviour for learning as well as our attitudes and behaviours towards others.
These values are rewarded using our MarvellousME app and are a focus within weekly themes. Staff and children alike work hard and learn how to show these values throughout their time in school in order that we can prepare for our lives beyond Spetisbury – whatever they might have in store.
