Our Church School Vision
At Barrowby Church of England Primary School we believe that:
As a Church school family, we strive for excellence, ensuring that we all feel happy, valued and loved. We aim to provide an exciting, innovative, and relevant curriculum that enables all to ‘shine’ and develop as creative, respectful and independent citizens. We seek to promote equal opportunities for all so that each individual is encouraged to achieve their full potential and become lifelong learners who can make a positive contribution to society.
Our overarching aim is to support children in coming to terms with the world in which they live; socially, intellectually, emotionally, physically, morally and spiritually.
We aim to nurture:
Creativity: We respect our children’s individuality, encourage creativity and support every child to make the most of their God given talents.
There are different ways to serve the same Lord, and we can each do different things.
Yet the same God works in all of us and helps us in everything we do. 1 Corinthians 12: 5-6
Respect: As we are all equal in the eyes of God, we promote equality of opportunity for all, irrespective of gender, race, creed, ability or disability.
I am giving you a new command. You must love each other,
just as I have loved you. John 13: 34-35
Independence: We want our pupils to leave our school as well educated, self confident and reflective members of a global society.
Make your light shine, so that others will see the good that you do and
will praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16
CREATIVITY RESPECT INDEPENDENCE
As a community, we promote a caring, friendly atmosphere of mutual respect and co-operation, within our Christian foundation, and based on Christian values. We encourage honesty, understanding, tolerance, sensitivity, perseverance, independence and autonomy, and set high standards of behaviour, and good manners.
We value the strengths and experiences of individuals, and aim to provide positive and rewarding experiences, and equal opportunity for all children, irrespective of age, gender, race, culture, religion, ability or disability.
We aim to provide the highest standards of education for our pupils, and have high expectations in all respects. We encourage creativity, self-confidence, enterprise and an excitement in learning, and support children in fulfilling their potential. We celebrate their achievements and encourage and challenge our children to learn from a broad based, relevant and stimulating curriculum, through the Foundation Stage, the National Curriculum and extended school activities.
We encourage children to take an active part in the learning process and to become independent learners, within a learning environment in which children can foster pride in their own achievements, and those of others, and to appreciate the wider world.
It is Barrowby CE Primary School’s intention to provide a very distinctive, stimulating and engaging learning environment. We believe that our holistic approach, using our robust and rigorous self-evaluation processes, enable us to provide every opportunity for each individual to achieve their potential.
Promoting the 9 Protected Characteristics
The Equality Act became law in 2010. It covers everyone in Britain and protects people from discrimination, harassment and victimisation. Everyone in Britain is protected. This is because the Equality Act protects people against discrimination because of the protected characteristics that we all have. Under the Equality Act, there are nine Protected Characteristics:
