School Vision and British Values
Believe, and together we can achieve.
Community † Respect † Hope
At Dunham-on-Trent Church of England Primary School we believe that our purpose, within a mindful Christian environment, is to open up horizons of aspiration for every child and adult; enabling them to learn well, be healthy and safe in spirit, mind and body, and to discover ‘Life in all its fullness.’
Our Christian Vision is 'Believe and together we can achieve' which comes from 'As it is , there are many parts but one body' Corinthians 12. We believe that as stakeholders in our school we are 'the many parts' but working together we can achieve so much more.
We inspire a joy in learning; empowering every individual to have the courage to make mistakes and try new things, leading to resilience in learning and life.
We value each other and we value our community; in giving and appreciating each other we build better relationships and are able to flourish together.
We encourage a spirit of forgiveness and reconciliation; showing respect for every individual; being peace makers.
We nurture a global view; celebrating difference and developing hope in our shared life on a fragile planet.
The 'fundamental British values' are:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
