Our (Church of England’s) vision for education is deeply Christian, with Jesus’ promise of ‘life in all its fullness’ at its heart.
In line with the Church of England’s role as the established Church, our vision is for the common good of the whole community.
Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.
Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.
Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.
Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.
We aim to live out this vision at St Anne’s. We have lots of ways we do this and two are outlined below: SASA and our Ethos group.
SASA – Spirituality at St Anne’s
- Christian value cube
- the focus value for the half term
- an item to focus with prayer
- a recipe
- a treat/gift for the whole class
- worship evaluation forms
- an item for the class reflection area
Mrs Webb leads the school’s ethos group. Pupils vote for who they think would serve their class and school in living out the school’s vision. Their meetings consist of: planning and leading worship, gathering other pupils opinions, speaking to governors and creating spaces within school for prayer and reflection.
