Our Christian School Ethos and Vision Statement

 

Our vision was written and launched in 2018/2019 as part of our 10th Birthday celebrations as Towcester C of E Primary School:

We will send the children out, as Noah did the dove (Genesis 8:8-12), having nurtured and prepared them for life. Knowing that they are valued they can fly and take the values of the school out into the world.

’If we live by the spirit, let us also walk in the spirit.’ (Galatians 5:25)

It was written with members of the school community and incorporates the dove from the story of Noah as seen on our logo. We aspire for all of our children to flourish as a consequence of the teaching and opportunities they experience at our school. We wish for them all to 'fly' from our school has happy, confident, resilient people who will want to fulfil their lives by taking further opportunities.

Our Vision statement can be seen on a plaque facing the playground, by our Noah mural.

The children have made banners in their House colours; each reflecting a key word from the vision. These are displayed by the school entrance.

We launched our vision with invited guests, parents and pupils in a special birthday celebration in June 2019.

Our Mission Statement was written in consultation with pupils, staff and Governors in 2012:
