School Mission and Values

“…if you have faith as small as a mustard seed…nothing will be impossible.”

(Matthew: 17 v20)

VISION STATEMENT:

Our vision for the Federation of The Downs and Northbourne CEP Schools is to put God and Family at the heart of all we do. As a nurturing community, we use the parable of The Mustard Seed “…if you have faith as small as a mustard seed…nothing will be impossible.” (Matthew: 17 v20) This guides the way we value and treat all members of our school community. Through our pastoral care and our rich curriculum experiences we provide a safe and dynamic learning environment in which all can flourish.

To grow in: Faith, Love, Compassion, Kindness, Respect & Forgiveness

Our six Christian Values are at the heart of our vision. Every day we aspire to grow in Faith, Love, Compassion, Kindness, Respect and Forgiveness, so that our school family may experience the joy and hope of “life in all its fullness” (John: 10 v10)

Our values underpin our entire school curriculum.

We want to develop learners who are:

  • communicative
  • independent
  • collaborative
  • inquisitive
  • resilient
  • emotionally intelligent

As Christians we want to develop learners who are:

  • Respectful
  • Loving
  • Faithful
  • Compassionate
  • Kind
  • Forgiving

The Federation of The Downs and Northbourne is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all Governors, staff, volunteers, parents and carers to share this commitment.
