Reach Higher – This shows our commitment to excellence. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to be the best that they can be and our job as a school is to enable and encourage each individual child to take the next step of their climb and achieve more everyday.
Think Deeper – We are not here just to fill children with facts and help them pass tests, but to nurture and encourage their growth in all areas. Children have the ability to ask and think about the big questions in life and we cherish these questions and share in the journey of discovering answers with the children.
Love Wider – As a church school, we believe that Love is the most important value of all. We want children who have spent time in our school, not only to feel loved and respected as individuals, no matter what mistakes they make, but to pass it on and make the world a better place. We want our children and staff to be outstanding citizens who put others before themselves. The word “wider” also reminds us that difference of all kinds should be celebrated and that everyone is loved by God.
Reach Higher, Think Deeper, Love Wider – The whole statement also reminds us of a few other things.
1) We want to help grow three-dimensional children, not just one dimensional statistics.
2) Maybe there is an echo of the three-fold nature of the Trinity in it.
3) The apostle Paul prays, in his letter to the church in Ephesus, that the people will:
“grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
