VISION & VALUES “Believe, Learn, Grow”Our vision is for all children to believe in themselves and develop a love of lifelong learning as we grow together as part of God’s family.
We will believe: –That we can fulfil our potential;That each voice is important;In ourselves and in each other.Jeremiah 29:11“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
”We will learn: –Actively and creatively;In a happy and safe environment;To love ourselves and celebrate our uniqueness;To become more independent and resilient.Proverbs 22:6Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
We will grow: –In wisdom, love and compassion – treating others as we want to be treated;To be curious – asking questions about the world around us;Into active citizens contributing to our community;Together as part of God’s family. Colossians 2:7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.Our daily life at Lydiard Millicent CE Primary is underpinned by 12 Christian values. These are taught and modelled by all members of the school community.
Visits to our school are positively encouraged.
