The parable of the Lost Sheep (Luke chapter 15 vs 3-6) underpins our vision and demonstrates that each individual within our community is unique and precious. Our school is a place where every person has the right to be themselves, to be included and to learn in a safe and happy environment. Everyone at our school is equal and treats each other with respect and kindness.
Our pupils and their families are the centre of our school and everything that we do is with their well-being and success as our priority. We believe that we should work to include and nurture every child at our school, to ensure that their learning journey is exciting and challenging and allows them to discover what makes them unique and precious members of our school community. We encourage all of our children to work to the very best of their ability and offer an extensive range of stimulating experiences to allow every child access to an exciting and inspirational education. All of our work is underpinned by our six MAT key Christian values of: Respect, Courage, Service, Compassion, Creativity and Faith.
We aim to provide:
- A safe, secure, happy and stimulating learning environment. The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
- A broad and balanced curriculum. At Quethiock we aim to make our curriculum meaningful, interesting and fun, including real experiences for the children.
- An understanding of the community in which we live, with many learning experiences linked to farming and rural life.
- Opportunities for all pupils to bring their talents and interests to contribute to the life of our school to experience success and to develop self-esteem.
- Active and enjoyable learning opportunities. This is especially important in the early years at school, Foundation Stage and Year 1, but we believe that active learning is valid for all ages. We are committed to offering high quality PE and Sport to all our children.
- A partnership with parents and carers. We value parental support and to work together with parents for the benefit of the children; to achieve this we try to involve parents in their children’s education in a variety of ways.
