I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
Our Christian Mission Statement
The Christian life is like a journey with Jesus into the heart of God. Our mission is simply to take the children by the hand and invite them to join us on the journey, working in close partnership with our neighbouring church and vicar, as together we discover our Christian spirituality. We promise also to help nurture those of other faiths and to give a creative space for those of no faith to explore our distinctive beliefs.
Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens, who are well prepared for life in the modern world.
We are committed to improving the quality of the educational provision for all our children which will enable them to reach their full potential and attain the levels of knowledge, understanding and skills that society demands for their future lives. High quality education at Tanworth-In-Arden Church of England Primary School and Nursery will be achieved by:
positive, caring and clearly focused leadership from the senior leadership team
the whole staff team working together to do its best for our children
the whole staff team having high expectations of our children’s social, behavioural and academic performance
well planned, exciting and challenging teaching that develops lively, enquiring and open minds in our children
creating stimulating and attractive learning environments in which our children can take a pride
fostering a calm, secure and purposeful working atmosphere that nurtures a positive esteem and self-image in all our children
promoting respect for other people and their property
working in partnership with parents, governors, church and the local community to enrich opportunities for our children
We will continually strive to achieve the school’s aims through the formal curriculum and through all the other experiences offered to our children. High quality education will raise the children’s standards of attainment, enabling them to:
develop their use of English and Maths which provide the foundation for all their other learning
develop social skills that encourage positive interactions between their peers as well as adults
treat everyone in an equal manner, irrespective of gender, race, class or disability
develop personal and moral values that are respectful of others, leading to their appreciation and toleration of other religions and other ways of life
learn in a safe and secure environment, in keeping with Health and Safety Regulations that are in the interests of all whom work in the school.
Our aspirations for our children:
To know we are all special and matter to God.
To achieve my potential, to be the best I can be.
To work together to achieve our goals.
To be able to explain my ideas clearly and listen carefully to other people.
To be polite and respectful to everyone.
To be friendly and kind to everyone.
To be dependable and trustworthy.
To be confident and safe using computing in my learning.
