Vision and Mission Our vision and mission: In our leadership of Claverley CE Primary School, we aim to live out our shared Vision, rooted in Biblical teaching, in all that we do. Our Church school motto ‘to encourage one another and build each other up’ (1 Thessalonians 5:11)’ reflects our vision to empower all to flourish and support them to fulfil their God given potential inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus. Our curriculum is designed to inspire, challenge and support each child to achieve. Our vision at Claverley C of E primary is ‘to encourage one another and build each other up’ (1 Thessalonians 5:11) so that we are each empowered to make the most of the lives we have been gifted by God (to live out our BEST lives). Our vision is achieved through our mission in practice in the 4 positive action statements that form the basis of the Claverley code: Believe that we can change things for the better (Hope) rEspect our environment and each other (Dignity) Support our friends and community (Community) Take every opportunity to learn (Wisdom) – And our motto: ‘encourage one another and build each other up’ (1 Thessalonians 5:11) Core Values To emphasise the Christian distinctiveness of our Church School the following values underpin all that we do and support our pupils to flourish. During their time at Claverley, we want to instil, within all our pupils, our core values of: Hope – Christian hope means trusting in the loving purposes of God: trusting that the foundations of the world are good because they spring from God. Dignity – not thinking too much of ourselves but putting others first, trusting in God’s challenging wisdom so that we may grow in faith, hope and love. Community – Live in harmony with one another. Wisdom – Insight into the way life works; a proper understanding of the consequences of our thoughts, words and actions and an awareness of the true value of things. Spirituality Our context and driver Our Christian ethos of support for one another to build hope, dignity, community and wisdom underpins every aspect of our school community. Every child is supported to fulfil their potential and to aim to be the ‘BEST’ version of themselves. We strive for the fullest development of each child in all areas of their school life – academic, creative, personal, physical, social and spiritual. Being a small school, we benefit from having a strong sense of belonging and identity where every member of the school ‘family’ feels valued. Our school serves as a central part of our village and our community and through our warm, safe, nurturing environment everyone is supported to make a valuable contribution to both, fully believing in the power of the positive school and community relationships to enhance and change lives for the better. Living in a rural community means our students are very aware of the surrounding countryside and the natural environment. The rural nature of our school enables us to make the most of outside learning opportunities (including forest school) through which we promote and foster responsibility and care for our diverse world not only locally but nationally and globally. Through supporting children to become resilient, responsible and resourceful learners we strive to develop individuals who are inquisitive about the wider opportunities available to them outside of our local small village. Through the spiritual, moral, social and cultural experiences which are embedded throughout the curriculum, we aim to open children’s eyes to new experiences and challenges to broaden experiences and to develop confidence in order to support the children in understanding their place in the global community. We support our friends and community through fundraising events like Red Nose day!
