The vision for education outlined by the Church of England Education Office states:
‘Our purpose in education is to enable the children, young people and communities we serve to flourish as they experience education for wisdom, hope, community and dignity and discover life in all its fullness which Jesus offers’.
As an Academy we train our staff and create a curriculum which asks:
How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling students and adults to flourish?’
The Academy underpins its curriculum with the John 10:10 quote:
“My purpose is to give life in all its fullness” John 10:10
