VISION seeks to answer the question: Where are we going?
When establishing our vision, staff were encouraged to think about their personal vision for the school and then in groups think about the characteristics and attributes that we would like our Year 6 pupils to have when they leave. Staff were asked the following question:
If our school were an animal, which would it be and why?
Staff were encouraged to think of the characteristics and behaviours of an animal that would reflect what we want from our pupils. They then composed a prayer/poem and logo which could form our vision. These were shared with pupils, parents, governors and the Friars. The following vision was agreed upon:
Storing up knowledge for the future with,
Qualities eagerly developed amongst each child
Uniqueness is celebrated, understanding fostered, creating
Inquisitive, independent, individuals who are
Retrieving knowledge through
Effort and enthusiasm
Learning to love just like our Lord Jesus Christ
