It is critical that everybody observes the following key behaviours: HANDS - Wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds. FACE - Wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet. SPACE - Stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors).

The impact of our school’s vision holistically infuses and shapes the direction of our school- our curriculum and our commitment to the future of our children when they leave us. The curriculum actively reflects a pedagogical approach that actively enables pupils to reflect and explore the spiritual and ethical dimension of all subjects and it is tailored to meet the needs of all pupils so that all can flourish.Our innovative and imaginative practice to transform lives reflects our vision.

We apply our understanding of spiritual development so that we have the confidence and ability as staff to move beyond planned opportunities to make the most of questions raised by the curiosity of pupils and opportunities to occur spontaneously and explore situations of injustice and inequality in order to open horizons- creating concern for others. In doing so, our children are articulate advocates of change.
