Visions and Values

Church School

Our school is a Church of England School and part of the Oxford Diocese School's Trust. We have a strong Christian ethos and maintain a close connection with the Diocese of Oxford.  "The core purpose of any Church school is to maximise the learning potential of every pupil within the love of God." (Valuing All God's Children, May 2014). The School's Christian foundation is therefore central to our work and is reflected in our motto:

Love Learning, Love Life...in all its fullness (John 10:10)

 

The Church of England has a positive role in our school, providing both a community service and a specifically Christian form of education. We value our close links with St. Michael’s Church in Bray.

Staff and Governors have defined the values we uphold in our mission statement.  We would also stress that the school serves a multi cultural society and welcomes those of all faiths.

Our Vision

Rooted in our Christian Foundation everyone feels valued, respected and knows their contribution will be recognised. Through our broad and memorable education experiences, all pupils achieve their full potential and become enthusiastic learners for life. Our pupils are active, healthy, responsible citizens of the future. 

Mission Statement

The school mission statement is at the very heart of all we do at Holyport. It explains the values and beliefs that underpin our school life.

  • Holyport School has a long tradition of offering a Christian education.
  • We believe everyone is precious in the sight of God and we value the gifts they bring.
  • We seek to develop a love of learning and we place equal importance upon academic, moral, social, physical and spiritual development.
  • Forging strong links with our families and the wider community, we endeavour to offer an excellent education which will prepare the children for the opportunities, experiences and responsibilities of adult life.

Our Values

During the summer of 2018, we revisited our values with the help of the Worship and Values Team. They consulted with each class to identify the values most important to them. Although rooted in Christian teaching, these values are also important to other faiths and cultures within our school community including those with no faith. The Worship and Values Team then organised a ballot where pupils, staff and the wider community voted for the 6 values they felt were the most important.

Our shared Christian Values are:

Friendship

Love and Peace

Trust

Responsibility

Respect

Creativity
