What is our Vision? What are our Values?
Welcome to Developing our Vision for English Martyrs
One of the core functions of the Governing Body is
We have recognised that this is not always clearly articulated or visible to our school community so we have decided that this needs to be addressed.
What are our goals?
How are we doing this?
We will work in collaboration with all our stakeholders – staff, pupils, parents and parishioners.
We are following a recognised process that guides our thinking and ensures collaboration, engagement, communication and execution.
What have we done so far? (March 2021 update)
We have chosen our School Values….
In collaboration with Staff, Pupils and Parents we have chosen the following 4 Values that we want to live by in our school:
Community, Respect, Inspire and Belief
These values were chosen by looking at what we all believed were important to us, listening to staff and pupils, understanding what they relate to and why.
As part of this process we also looked at vision statements for each of these values so that we have a common understanding of what these are. In our recent parent survey we asked for feedback on what was most important to you and this has resulted in the following vision statements for our School Values:
Community: We have a responsibility to inspire, believe and respect each other within our school and wider community
Respect: We listen, all voices are heard and valued. We encourage diversity, we respect difference
Inspire: We have a curriculum that is engaging and interesting to all. We understand what inspires and motivates the pupils
Belief: Our pupils believe in their ability and strive to do more
What does this look like for the children?
During the year, we have been looking at each of our values and exploring what they mean to us, why they are important and what they look like when we are living them out in our school. To complete their learning, the children have been designing logos that represent the value in English Martyrs school. So far we have chosen our logos to represent 'Community', 'Inspire' and 'Belief':
We are using our Value and vision statements to develop and articulate our School Vision. Once this has been agreed we will start to develop our strategy for achieving our Vision.
