Our School Vision & Values

Jesus grew in wisdom, in health and in favour with God and people Luke 2 v 52


This verse from the New Testament gives us a picture of how Jesus grew through his own childhood and education. He grew in understanding, in well-being, in spiritual ways and socially. He presents us with a model that is robust both theologically and educationally.

Vision Statement.

At St Denys we are seeking to build a school founded upon Christian values in which children can grow in wisdom through learning and reflection, stay safe and well under the care and guidance of passionate and well-trained staff and volunteers, and develop a healthy spirituality that is demonstrated through our values, and which form the basis for a compassionate, inclusive and generous hearted community. 

As we seek the holistic development of each child, we will recognise their unique God given, potential and the part they can play in building a loving, learning community. When Jesus met Simon the disciple he said to him, you are Simon, you will be Peter, my rock. (John 1 v 42) He saw the potential for good in the person before him. All our staff and governors strive to look on our children in the same way and we encourage the same vision for all members of our community.

By embedding our Christian values deep into our curriculum, our policies, our collective worship, and our relationships both within and without the school community we will seek to set children on a path that will lead them to becoming wise, kind and caring members of society. The story of the Good Samaritan carries the command to go and do the same. (Luke 10 v 37) That is both our challenge and our inspiration.
