Head Teacher's vision
The West Tyne Church Schools take pride in developing teaching and learning by holding the highest expectations of all our pupils and knowing the children well.
We challenge all children to strive for academic, creative, spiritual, sporting and personal accomplishment within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum. A wide range of educational experiences are provided to inspire inquisitive learners whilst providing a vehicle for the development of the basic skills needed for the future.
We encourage children to take ownership of and responsibility for their learning, so they have the confidence and curiosity to ask questions, believe in themselves, solve problems and respond to quality feedback. Children are praised for hard work, determination and having a positive attitude. We would like every child to reach their full potential in all aspects of learning, preparing them to become active and highly valued members of the local and global community.
To create an inclusive Church of England school atmosphere where everyone can succeed, we promote our Christian character through an ethos of respect and empathy.
Safeguarding and welfare is extremely important and pupils are taught the virtues of kindness, appreciation and what it means to be courageous.
The West Tyne Church Schools foster open and honest communication with parents, carers and specialists and actively seek to engage with all members of the surrounding communities in a positive and supportive manner.
We strive to make our schools a place where staff, governors and parents work together to ensure children receive a rich, inspiring, dynamic and engaging education; enabling each child to become a lifelong learner, aspiring to high standards of achievement in all areas of their life.
Inspire, Support, Believe, Achieve
We aim to encourage and motivate the children; to inspire them to become independent learners and creative thinkers. Â We strive to have high expectations of each other and of all our children encouraging them to always do their best.
Our aim is to create a happy, secure and stimulating learning environment in which all children, members of staff and the school community can grow in confidence and develop their full potential.
Our children are at the heart of everything we do- we listen to what they say and build this into what we provide for them. We encourage children, parents and staff to believe in themselves, to be resilient and to always try their best.
We aim to be an outstanding, values-based school at the heart of our community, striving for excellence, enabling our children to achieve their highest potential in all areas of the curriculum.
As church schools at the heart of the village communities, Christian values underpin our work, our relationships and our commitment to ensure equality of opportunity for all pupils. Our children learn to become resilient and self-assured in an environment where safety is paramount. Each child is challenged and encouraged to thrive and achieve as individuals, preparing them for their role as caring and active citizens in modern Britain. Our values-based schools nurture curiosity and creativity through an inspiring, broad and engaging curriculum, where learning is at the heart of all that we do.
