Kirkstall St. Stephen’s C of E (Voluntary Aided) Primary School

Vision Statement

 


‘We are cherished … We are challenged … We are children of God’

Our school vision

We are cherished- valued and supported members of the school community

We are challenged- faced with difficult questions we try and find the right pathways in learning and behaviour

We are children of God- we behave in a way which shows respect for and takes into consideration wider spiritual issues

This vision is complemented by our values tree based on Psalm 1.

Psalm 1: 1-3

1 Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

 

Central to our aims is an expectation that the children of Kirkstall St Stephen’s CE Primary School will display high standards of behaviour and treat other people as they would wish to be treated themselves in accordance with our school rules. We promote an environment which helps children develop into confident, well-motivated and hard- working pupils who enjoy school and have high self-esteem, and who go onto achieve their full potential.

We have written a song for our school vision -Children of St. Stephen’s school

 

We are cherished, we are challenged, we are children of God

We are cherished, we are challenged, we are children of God

We are cherished, we are challenged, we are children of God

We are children of St. Stephen’s school.

 

We know that we are cared for and we all try to be kind

If we need someone to help us, we know that’s what we’ll find

We all work well together and let our talents show

We all need love to help us grow.

 

We are cherished, we are challenged, we are children of God

We are cherished, we are challenged, we are children of God

We are cherished, we are challenged, we are children of God

We are children of St. Stephen’s school.

 

Sometimes our work is hard and we really need to try

When it seems too hard to do, we know the reason why

A challenge is so good for us, it helps us to learn more

So we won’t just fly we’ll really soar.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of
all children, and expects our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
