Vision and Mission Statement

Our vision is:

Life and learning at Greatham School is firmly rooted in the message:

 Love each other, just as I have loved you (John 15:12)

 Central to our school ethos is love and respect for God, each other and all of creation and we value the positive partnerships with the Church, families, governors and the wider community.

 We love each other because we believe that each person, from youngest to oldest, is unique and created in God’s image and likeness (Genesis 1.26).

 We aim to provide a loving and nurturing environment that enables pupils to fully develop their skills and talents. We encourage children to take risks, make mistakes and through perseverance, learn from these to achieve in a loving and supportive environment.

We support pupils to become independent, resilient and reflective learners through a creative, broad and balanced curriculum tailored to their needs.  We are dedicated to making the school a loving and caring community where all children can interact, learn and pursue academic excellence together so that they may lead responsible and fulfilling lives.

 We support all our school family to live out the message Love each other, just as I have loved you (John 15:12) through our core Christian values of love, hope, peace, forgiveness and trust, which are deeply rooted in all aspects of school life.
