Our vision and values
THE VISION AND VALUES OF THE FEDERATION
Our school’s has its own vision. We work together to create the best learning environment for our children to flourish where they are known and loved. 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.
Our vision is;
Learning to Love, Learning to Live Together.
The vision is underpinned by the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10). Jesus told the story to remind us of the importance of loving our neighbours. As a school we want everyone to feel known/valued and loved and to provide a broad balanced and relevant curriculum where their needs are fully met and they are able to thrive. We understand our neighbours to be local, national and global and encourage our children to care for themselves, each other and our world.
The Ethos of the Federation
- As Church of England (VA) Schools, Lady Modiford’s and Meavy encourage the children to follow the principles of Christianity and a Christian lifestyle.
- The schools encourage each child to realise their full potential by the provision of a caring, ordered and happy environment; an environment conducive to spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development regardless of age, gender, race, creed or exceptional needs.
- The schools believe that it has a duty to foster qualities of character such as conscientiousness, independence, self-confidence, honesty and consideration for others.
- We endeavour to keep fair, consistent discipline with positive reinforcement through praise and encouragement.
The Federation Values:
The school vision and the five school values are a golden thread which weave through our every day, creating a Christian ethos and environment where the children can feel happy and confident to experiment, explore and flourish. Through our visions and values, we aim to ‘Live life in all its fullness’ John 10:10.
Our philosophy is holistic, inclusive and centred in good pedagogical research. We believe the environment for children to flourish works best when routed in our values of wisdom, joy, love, hope and respect.’
