Vision, Aims and Values
Our school vision ‘Curious Minds, Open Hearts & Joy of Learning’ is at the heart of all we do. At Homefield VC C of E Primary we strongly believe in providing the children with inspiring, creative and meaningful learning experiences that builds on their natural curiosity and ignites their passion for learning. Through our well sequenced, knowledge rich curriculum and a supportive environment we aim to create a culture with high expectations where children embrace the joy, awe and wonder of learning.
We aspire for all of our children to leave Homefield VC C of E Primary School, with high aspirations, having the confidence and knowledge they need to succeed as unique individuals.
Our vision is unpinned by the core value of RESPECT
We actively promote ‘Respect’ throughout our school community. We celebrate difference and diversity by encouraging our children to be outward looking.
By showing and living the value of Respect for ourselves, for others and for the global environment. Our thinking, our behaviour and our decision making is guided towards achieving our vision.
Both our vision and our associated values are grounded in a clear theology firmly rooted in a Christian narrative from the New Testament of the Bible.
In Matthew’s Gospel chapter 22 v 37-39
37, Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind’ 38 this is the first and greatest commandment. 39, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ this is the second commandment
As a school community, we are one body that follows these basic principles of ‘love god, love yourself and your neighbour’. We demonstrate this by having respect for ourselves, for others and for the environment
