Wormley Church of England Primary School (VC)

Our school community comprises: all children, parents, carers, staff, governors and others associated with the school, including the Diocese and the church, community groups, local charities, business and support services and all external educational agencies.

Ethos

Wormley Church of England Primary School is a caring church school which sets high store on the value of all participants.  Expectations of care and concern for the well being of all children, staff and families are a central core of our Christian ethos.  Wherever possible, this informs our relationships and the nature of our interactions.

Mission statement

With God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26)

Have Faith, Take Responsibility, Show Respect and Achieve.

Our mission is to provide a unique environment and curriculum in which all participants are welcomed, valued and enabled to flourish.

Wormley Vision

Our vision is that, from arrival at Wormley, each child should grow in their awareness of themselves and others, moving forward in their learning journey and maximising their learning potential in school and beyond. Our intention is that they come to know that they are loved by God, and therefore, all things are possible. To this end, we provide an ambitious, broad and balanced curriculum that supports children to develop as individuals with the knowledge, skills, behaviours and attitudes necessary to navigate and flourish in our rapidly changing world where high technology must be balanced with respect for humanity and the natural world.

Our educational aims

Our vision is that, from arrival at Wormley, each child should move forward in their learning journey and achieve their full potential. Our intention is that they come to know that they are loved by God, and therefore, all things are possible. As a result, we will provide opportunities that support children to develop as individuals with the knowledge, skills, behaviours and attitudes necessary to develop and flourish in our rapidly changing society, where high technology must be balanced with respect for humanity and the natural world. 

“All staff believe that each member of the community should be treated as someone special, made in the image of God, who deserves to be treated with dignity, respect and love. Therefore, the school takes strenuous measures to embrace and address the needs of each pupil.” (SIAMS, 2016)

Visitors to Wormley Church of England Primary School comment on the warm, calm and friendly atmosphere within the school.  We believe that children feel happy and secure in this environment and this in turn creates the best possible climate for learning. But this school is not for children alone so we extend our vision to our stakeholders that they may feel that same sense of warmth, calm and community.

Inspiring lifelong learning

Wormley Church of England Primary School aims.

Within a distinctive Christian ethos, we intend to provide a welcoming, safe and stimulating learning environment which offers a rich, relevant and motivating curriculum to develop individuals and inspire life-long learning.

“A pupil, who had recently moved from the school to a secondary school stated, ‘The school feels like home, it helps you
through incidents at home, at school and out of school’” (SIAMS, 2016)

To facilitate our vision we aim:-

  • To continue to ensure that every child enjoys learning and achieves their full potential regardless of gender, age, race, physical or intellectual capacity, economic situation or class, in a happy and secure learning environment.
  • To raise standards by ensuring that the skills, knowledge, dispositions and values of individuals are fully developed 
  • To promote the health, well-being and confidence of all learners within the school, enabling them to see themselves as valued and valuable members of a wider society 
  • To provide a strong framework for promoting good behaviour and positive attitudes in order to cultivate a safe and secure community in which everyone may flourish
  • To give our pupils a sense of success and pride in all their activities and  prepare children for future economic well-being
  • To provide opportunities for our pupils to become successful independent learners and leaders through a wide variety of physical, intellectual and aesthetic experiences. 
  • To develop the school’s role in the local and wider community and each child’s understanding of citizenship by continuing our strong links with the church and local primary schools, liaising with nearby larger secondary schools and encouraging links with local industry, residents and organisations.

We encourage all children to develop as super learners since learning is life’s most important skill. We want them:

  • To have faith in God, themselves and others
  • To show respect for themselves and others, and the world in which we live
  • To take responsibility for themselves and in their learning 
  • To achieve their potential by developing as resilient, resourceful and reflective beings
