ETHOS

Boyne Hill Infant and Nursery School recognises its historic foundation and will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England. We aim to serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promote Christian values and promote them through the experience we offer to all our pupils.

 

VISION

To be a welcoming sanctuary of education where all pupils will thrive and develop a life-long love of learning to set them on the road to a happy, healthy, successful and fulfilling life. Our nurturing environment of happiness, peace, calm, love and security, combined with high quality teaching and learning, will support, challenge and inspire all pupils to develop into citizens of our multi-cultural society who all want to work towards a peaceful world. We will promote diversity as we strive for harmony and acceptance of different cultures, religions and beliefs.

Our pupils will:

  • feel safe and secure at school;
  • develop the confidence to mix and play with others and be encouraged to discover and develop their individuality;
  • feel happy, confident, valued and enjoy learning;
  • be encouraged to care for, respect and value each other through spiritual, moral, social and cultural education;
  • be encouraged to be curious, to question everything and be risk takers who are not afraid to make mistakes;
  • be encouraged to stand up and have their voices heard, to challenge when they feel passionate about something and to support each other;
  • develop a positive self-image and the motivation to succeed;
  • take pride in their own development to become valuable members of society;
  • understand the meaning of the British Values and be encouraged to grow up observing and making them their own values.
