Ethos and values

Loders CE VC School is committed to providing an excellent education through love, peace and fellowship. Every child has equal access to an enriching curriculum, enabling them to develop independence and a life-long love of learning.

Our Aims

To value each other - Valuing the uniqueness of all individuals through our Christian values

To be proud of ourselves and our achievements - Being proud of all our successes and learning from our failures

To work as a team and respect others at all times - Children, parents, staff, church and the wider community working together to achieve our common aims

To provide a safe, happy and stimulating school - Providing a secure and inclusive environment in which everyone can develop and flourish

To aspire to do our best at all times - Developing the skills to enable all of us to reach our full potential

To inspire a sense of awe and wonder - Inspiring an appreciation of spirituality

To care for ourselves and the environment - Caring for the world and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle

At Loders CE VC Primary School we uphold and teach pupils about the British Values as directed under new Ofsted guidance, September 2014: democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths, which are taught explicitly through PSCHE and RE.  We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum.

As a Church of England VC school, we base our values on the understanding of the Christian faith. Our core values are embedded into everyday life at Loders and we celebrate those that are shared with other cultures and faiths.

We believe that children learn values from their personal relationships and experiences, from the examples set by parents, other adults and teachers and their relationships with each other.

1 Corinthians 13

v4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

v7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love is the value that all of the others are based upon and therefore is our main core value.

Peace, Fellowship, Generosity, Compassion, Courage, Forgiveness, Hope, Respect
