Vision & Values
As a Church of England Primary School we are committed to providing the best possible education for all our pupils within the framework of a caring and Christian community that supports each of its members. Our vision statement explains what is important to us, and the basis of all our work with your child. The quality of relationships between all members of school, staff and pupils, and the relationship with parents and carers is closely linked to our ethos as a church school. It is expressed in the terms of sharing and caring. It is from this premise that Christian love will pervade all aspects of life at school. It will influence our relationships with pupils. It will affect how we value work and achievements of pupils and staff. It will be seen in the way the school environment is created and cared for; the way in which the needs of the pupils, parents and community are met, and in the way teaching and non teaching staff work together effectively as a team.
At Trowell C of E Primary we have agreed to follow 22 values grouped around four core foundations. These are statements that should define us, drive us and we aim that these will be easily evidenced in and around School. We aim that they will shape planning, decisions, team working, general attitude and therefore the whole school ethos.
Our school motto is ‘Be inspired to believe, achieve and succeed together’. This will be added to the title of our school website in the near future.
We envisage that each of these core foundations and the 22 values will form a key part of our daily collective worship times. They are on display in the school entrance and in our hall.
