Our vision and mission:
Inspired by Jesus’ promise that we might have ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10 :10.), our mission 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 mission in practice is illustrated 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)
A summary of our vision and mission
‘Encourage one another, and build each other up’ (1 Thessalonians 5:11) to make the best of the lives we have been gifted by God by believing we can change things for the better; respecting our environment and each other; supporting our friends and community and taking every opportunity to learn.
Our particular context as a small rural school brings with it both opportunities and challenges. Among our assets are our small family feel, strong interactions across age groups and our strong connections to our local community and natural environment. However, our relative geographical isolation, with poor public transport, limited local amenities and limited cultural diversity may limit student’s wider cultural experiences and opportunities to grow in independence. Small numbers, means increased opportunities for individual students to take part in sports teams, arts events, take on responsibilities and have their voices heard and it also sometimes means mixed age group classes and split year groups. All our staff are specialists in mixed age group teaching and take special care to take all of our opportunities and challenges into consideration as they tailor our curriculum to support every student to unlock, explore and fulfil their unique potential.
