Vision, values and ethos at Bunbury
A Caring Christian Family Where We Grow Together
Let your Light Shine
At the heart of everything is a personalised approach to each unique individual as part of our Christian Community. The strong family ethos ensures that all children and staff feel valued, respected and grow in self-confidence. Enthusiastic and caring staff with high expectations, demonstrate care of the whole child. Through God’s guidance we encourage each and every child to let their light shine.
At Bunbury Aldersey we aim to give children a Primary Education they will never forget, rich with diverse opportunites and experiences set within a Christian context. We are very proud of our school and its family ethos - underpinned by Christian Values. The Church school values we teach the children are the foundation of our school, taught through making links to Bible stories, SEAL and Christian values, enabling our children to make choices and decisions, both in and out of school. Our strong inclusive ethos places pupils at the heart with pupils making an outstanding contribution to the school and local communities. In our latest Ofsted Inspection ( January 2020) our pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development was highly praised.
We welcome all children and their families and see every child as an individual, valuing the contributions of all children across all areas of school life. We provide a high standard of education in a secure, happy environment. We aim for children to become confident, enquiring and independent learners, ready to challenge themselves, and enjoy and value learning.
We expect children to strive for their best in all areas of school life - religious, academic, physical,a rtistic and recreational.
We promote and achieve high standards of self-discipline and behaviour. We provide opportunities for every child to develop the social skills of tolerance and consideration, mutual respect and care within a Christian world.
We value the vital partnership between home and school, with parents and staff working together for the benefit of the children as we prepare them for success in the challenges of an ever changing world.
Our vision is set within the structure of our Christian beliefs and our new and successful work around The Rights Respecting Schools Award and consequently is underpinned by the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
WE aim to create an enjoyable, inclusive, safe and nurturing environment that allows all children to develop spiritually, morally and socially. – every child is a child of God, made to contribute to our world.
WE aim to create an inspiring environment, which encourages enthusiasm for lifelong learning and establishes an expectation of high standards – knowing the way, showing the way and going the way.
Article 29: Children’s education should develop each child’s personality, talents and abilities to the fullest. It should encourage children to respect others, human rights and their own and other cultures. It should also help them learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.
WE aim to encourage caring, sensitive and inclusive attitudes where individuals feel secure, valued and respected by others. – like Jesus showed us through his teachings
Article 12: Every child has the right to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously.
WE aim to provide a broad and connected curriculum which challenges and develops the potential of each child – as Jesus needed his disciples to support and guide, so we look to others with more knowledge
Article 28: Every child has the right to an education
WE aim to develop a positive relationship between home, school and our wider community- as a family – as brothers and sisters.
Article 3: The best interests of the children must be a top priority in all decisions and actions that affect children
You teach our children essential values that will stay with them for life. They learn important life lessons through Christian values whilst taking into account other beliefs as well.
