To learn every day, to help each other and to be happy.
Our school is a Church of England School and part of the Atlantic Cooperative Trust. We have a strong Christian ethos and maintain a close connection with the Diocese and St Margaret's Church led by Rev Derek Arnold, the Rector of Torridge Coastal Mission Community. "The core purpose of any Church school is to maximise the learning potential of every pupil within the love of God." (Valuing All God's Children, May 2014). The School's Christian foundation is therefore central to our work and is reflected in all that we do.
To enable all within the Northam Schools’ Federation to learn together, support each other and celebrate life.
To learn every day, to help each other and to be happy.
· Ensure that the Christian faith is integral to our provision with love (1 Corinthians 13) underpinning all that we do
· Provide a safe, purposeful, stimulating and aspirational learning environment
· Respect all faiths, languages and cultures.
· Promote the well-being of pupils, staff, parents and governors
· Value the partnership between pupils, staff, parents and governors
The Christian values of love, hope, forgiveness, compassion, wisdom, thankfulness, peace, trust and friendship embedded at both St George’s and across our Federation are derived from the biblical teachings of Jesus. Through the ‘Understanding Christianity Project’, diocese agreed RE syllabus and daily collective worship our children learn about the life and teachings of Jesus.
Our Christian vision is lived out in nurturing the Christian faith and ethos of the Church of England to enable all community members to develop spiritually, socially, intellectually and emotionally. Our vision underpins all of our policies, decision making and practices enabling individuals to live ‘life in all its fullness’. (John 10:10)
