LOVE God LOVE Neighbour LOVE Self (Matthew 22:36)
As a Church of England school, our school vision takes inspiration from and is deeply rooted in the Greatest Commandment:
“Love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and love your neighbour as yourself”.
Our school’s core values of love, friendship, compassion and respect sit at the heart of our school community and underpin every aspect of school life, including our whole school policy for promoting positive behaviour.
Love: “Do everything with love”. (Corinthians 16:14)
Friendship: “Encourage one another and build each other up”. (Thessalonians 5:11)
Compassion: “Be kind to one another”. (Ephesians 4:32)
Respect: “Treat others as you want to be treated”. (Luke 6:31)
We aim to develop happy, confident, loving and caring children who look after and value themselves, each other and their world. We want every child to feel valued and special and flourish with their unique God-given talents in all that they choose to do.
We seek to be positive role models to our children, guiding and teaching them through our ‘LOVE Promise’. We:
St Chad’s CofE Nursery and Infant school believes that in all aspects of school life, everybody has the right to feel safe, valued and respected at our school.
We have an expectation that children are compassionate friends who are respectful, tolerant and kind towards others. We do not leave this to chance. Strong relationships between staff and children are vital. We believe that the most important aspect in children feeling valued, safe and secure is the sense of connection and trust with a member (or members) of staff.
