Our vision and values
‘We are cherished...We are challenged... We are children of God’
Our school vision
We are cherished- we aim to create a caring environment where all children and staff feel welcome, supported, valued and respected.
We are challenged- we aim to provide a stimulating and challenging learning environment, where achievements are recognised and it's also safe to fail.
We are children of God- we recognise the value of each and every individual, and aim to encourage everyone's unique spiritual development and potential.
This vision is complemented by our values tree based on the bible verse in Jeremiah 17:7-8
Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have their confidence in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water, that sends it roots out by the stream.
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.
