OUR PURPOSE

At Burnt Yates Primary School we aim to provide a caring, creative and challenging environment inspired by Christian values, in which all children can thrive and succeed.

The combination of high professional standards, Christian values and strong links with the local community provides the framework for achievement within a caring and responsible environment.

The Partnership between Governors, Staff and Parents produces a balanced approach to education, which is reflected in happy, well-motivated pupils. As the children progress through school, they are encouraged to be self-disciplined and independent, taking responsibility for themselves and others where appropriate and developing the confidence needed to tackle the challenges that lie ahead.

AIMS OF THE SCHOOL

Burnt Yates School seeks to provide a secure and welcoming environment for children, their families and the wider community, within which a high quality of education can be achieved.  We are a Church of England Voluntary Aided School and organise our school according to principles and values that are rooted in Christian teaching.

We aim to enable each child to reach his/her full potential in all areas of development; spiritual, moral, cultural, physical, creative and academic. In order to achieve this we:-

  • Provide a stimulating and rewarding environment where high standards of achievement are expected.
  • Create a purposeful and happy atmosphere, where the individual needs of children are taken into account.
  • Demonstrate clear expectations of good conduct, where an awareness of the needs of others is encouraged.
  • Create a working environment, which fosters the development of self-discipline and a pride in personal achievement.
  • Provide a broad and balanced curriculum where there are equal opportunities for each child to develop his/her individual skills and talents.
  • Encourage children to develop a love of learning and to see education as a life-long, enjoyable process.
  • Help children to distinguish between right and wrong, to cooperate and work together, to have an understanding of the spiritual dimension of life, to appreciate faiths and cultures different from their own.
  • Enable teachers, parents, governors and members of outside agencies to work together for the benefit of the education of our children.


 


Our School Creed

This is our school.
Let peace dwell here,
Let the rooms be full of contentment,
Let love abide here,
Love of one another,
Love of mankind,
Love of life itself,
And love of God.
Let us remember
That, as many hands build a house,
So many hearts make a school.
