Our Vision and Core Values

Based on the wisdom of the Bible…..

‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’

(John 10:10)

We have a vision…

Believing & Achieving Together to be the Best We Can Be

Deeply rooted in Christian faith and the wisdom of the Bible, we believe that Jesus’ promise of ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10) can be realised at Feniton School through a broad and balanced curriculum which promotes diversity, healthy living, celebrates achievements, nurtures talents and prepares all pupils for living their own life to the full.

We believe that every pupil is unique in the sight of God and that the school should serve its local area by providing an education of the highest quality for all children in the context of Christian belief and relevant to our community. We aim to encourage each person to stretch themselves spiritually, morally, intellectually, emotionally, imaginatively and actively.

Every Bible story points to Jesus in a different way and highlights different Christian values. We present our Year 6 leavers with a Bible so they can use the book as a ‘toolkit for life’ and use their knowledge and understanding of the book to signpost themselves and others to the stories that are relevant and can offer guidance at different parts of their life and in different circumstances, continuing the vision of being the best they can be.

We provide weekly opportunities for pupils and parents to gather together in collective acts of Christian worship and we promote our Christian HEART Values through all aspects of the school day, so that all pupils and staff can strive to be the very best they can be (Happiness, Empathy, Achievement, Reflection & Trust).

We seek to preserve and develop the school’s Christian ethos in accordance with the principles and practice of the Church of England  https://www.churchofengland.org/ . We ask parents to respect our ethos and its importance to the school community.

Our Values:

HEART – WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

You may have heard your children talk about HEART, but have they told you want it stands for?

HEART sums up our school’s core Christian values – these values help to shape our teaching, our learning and the personal growth of every child. Through our values we can aspire to realise our vision of being the best we can be.

H – Happiness
E – Empathy
A – Achievement
R – Reflection
T – Trust

With God’s LOVE and LOVE for one another encircling all of the above values.

HEART comes from the pupils, teachers, parents, governors and wider community: what we value about the school and what we think makes us special and unique. These values are integrated in to everyday school life. We link the values with our learning and behaviour and children who demonstrate the HEART qualities are awarded a HEART certificate in our weekly Family Service.

So ask your children what HEART is all about!
