Vision, Values & Ethos 

‘Everything is possible for one who believes’ (Mark 9:23)

This is our School’s Mission Statement and encompasses all that we do.  Our School Vision is supported by our LEAP approach and it’s Biblical underpinnings.

Love  -  Give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. John 13 v 34

Enquire  - Ask and it will be given to you, search and you will find. Matthew 7 v 7

Achieve - I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4 v 13

Partnership - How very good and pleasant it is when everyone lives together in unity. Psalm 133 v 1

 

Values

Our daily life at Tadpole Farm CE Primary Academy is underpinned by 12 Christian values. 

These are taught and celebrated in daily worship and modelled by all members of the school community.

 

Ethos

Our Ethos is one that centres around the Church of England’s vision of education. We aim to ensure that each of our children will flourish and live life in its fullness, (John 10:10)

Embedded in our ethos is the belief of the ultimate worth of every person and in human dignity being at the heart of a good education.

We will:

  • Provide wisdom, ensuring that all teaching is vivid, imaginative and stimulating.

  • Encourage our children to challenge themselves spiritually, morally, intellectually, imaginatively and actively.

  • Develop positive relationships within the school itself and with the local community.

  • Commitment to the dignity and ultimate worth of each person, created in the image of God and loved by God.

British Values

This information should be taken and used as part of Tadpole Farm’s Church of England Primary Academy’s overall strategy and implemented within the context of our vision, instrument of government aims, and values of a Church of England Academy. Tadpole Farm is a Church of England Primary Academy which celebrates a love of God and puts the Christian ethos at the centre of all that it does.

1. Aims and Objectives

1.1 – At Tadpole Farm we promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

1.2 – Actively promoting these values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. Attempts to promote systems that undermine British values would be completely at odds with our duty to provide Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education.

1.3 – School staff are expected to uphold public trust in the profession and to maintain high standards of ethics and behaviour, within and outside school. This includes not undermining fundamental British values.

 

Knowledge and Understanding of British Values

3.1 – Through our teaching of British Values, we expect that pupils will:

  • understand how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process

  • appreciate that living under the rule of law protects individual citizens and is essential for their well-being and safety

  • encourage pupils to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and understand how they can positively contribute to the lives of those living and working within the locality of the school, and to the wider society

  • understand that the freedom to choose and hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law

  • accept that other people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour

  • understand the importance of identifying and combating discrimination

What this means for our Children

We are all equal, giving us dignity and respect because we are all made in the image of God to be in relationship with him.

We are all loved for who we are, because of our relationship with God.

We are all enabled to live and learn with God’s help.
