Our Vision and Values
Our Vision Statement
This is the Bible teaching which drives all we do as stakeholders, learners and a community.
All things are possible for those who believe (Mark 9.23)
Our vision is the golden thread which drives our actions as a family: “All things are possible for those who believe.” Mark 9.23. This is supported by our everyday actions which model our values and motto: ‘Learning together we grow in F.A.I.T.H’ (Friendship, Aspirations, In Wisdom, Trust and Hope). We work in strong, supportive, partnership with our families to enable our children to grow in to happy, confident, resilient, caring, aspirational young people - who have high expectations of themselves, each other, the community and our world.
Our Motto and Values
Learning together we grow in FAITH: Friendship, Aspirations, In wisdom, Trust, Hope
Our motto and values are a domain in which all children exceed their potential, where we believe that the safe, secure and healthy environment, enriched by the stimulating curriculum that we are nurtured in will enable us to learn the skills we need for high school and the world beyond and achieve the very best outcomes possible in life through a lifelong acquisition of Friendship, Aspirations, Wisdom, Trust and Hope.
What does our logo mean?
Shield: Brave and bold learners - This links back to the Christian Faith and a historic image of a shield being a symbol of protection. We are 'one family moving forward as one.'
Lion: Courageous advocates, Courageous learners.
Cotton flower: Links to a symbol from the Middleton Crest. Our historic link to the textile family, the Schwabes, who founded our school in the late 1800's for the children of the cotton mill workers in Rhodes and Middleton. The cotton mill chimney of the Schwabe Mill was a proud local monument until it was taken down in the 1990's. Many of the historic houses around are school were part of the Schwabe estate of homes built for the cotton Mill workers and their families. It also shows our historic link to the North West of England's past - co-operative movement and workers united.
Holy Trinity: The symbol of Trust, Honesty, Faith in: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy spirit.
Heart Hands: Friendship, love, respect, family - 1 team.
Christian Cross: for our faith in God and uniqueness as a Church school, our uniqueness is our trust in Faith, God and the teachings of Jesus Christ and sharing love, respect, and friendship for each other and our world.
