Henshaw Vision & Values

Our Vision
 

Our vision is to ensure that we, at the West Tyne Church Schools Federation, inspire, support, believe and achieve.

Inspire – We encourage and motivate our children to inspire them to become independent students, creative thinkers and lifelong learners.  We have high expectations of each other and of all our children, encouraging our community to strive to be the best they can be.

Support – We create a happy, secure and stimulating learning environment in which all children, members of staff and the school community can grow in confidence, be challenged, learn and develop to reach their full potential through collaboration and hard-work.

Believe – Our children are at the heart of everything we do – we actively listen to what they say and ensure they know that they can make a difference to the world.  We use our Christian values to show our belief in God’s teachings.  We encourage children, parents and staff to believe in themselves and each other, to be resilient and to reach for the stars.

Achieve – We celebrate achievement; be that academically, socially, spiritually or morally.  We use our values to strive for excellence, enabling our children to achieve their highest potential in all areas of the curriculum and within their own lives.

 

 

Our Values

We live by, recognise and celebrate our Christian values through our whole school promise, which is known by our whole school community.  We reward our children who are good role models in achieving our school promise during our weekly Celebration Assemblies.

Wisdom gives us strength in all we do

Endurance keeps us going, trust in teamwork too

 

A thankfulness to God and community is right

Respecting his creation, the gifts we hold tight

Everyone’s forgiven, kindness big and small

 

We value humility, justice for all

Peace and friendship for all to see

Striving for koinonia is where we want to be
