Growing within our Christian ethos of Care, Love & Respect
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 through the experience we offer to all our pupils.
We strive to create an environment in which all will feel valued and secure and develop a love of learning. Everyone is encouraged to care for, respect and value others, developing positive relationships as they take their first steps towards becoming responsible, thoughtful and confident citizens, prepared for the complexities of life in the 21st Century. Boyne Hill Infant and Nursery School has an excellent reputation within our local community and everyone works hard to create a school of which we are all proud.
To provide a safe and secure environment where all children are encouraged to be positive about their learning, aspire to realise their full potential and take pride in their achievements.
To help children develop lively, enquiring minds by providing a stimulating, motivating and challenging curriculum in which learning is enjoyable and fun.
To develop children’s confidence and self-esteem so they become confident, independent learners.
To give the children the skills, knowledge and experience that will enable them to become lifelong learners and lead happy and productive lives.
To encourage children to care for their school and the environment in which they live.
To cultivate, in all children, a respect for the spiritual, moral and cultural values of races, religions and ways of life different to their own.
