St Christopher’s is a school community with personalised learning at its heart. We provide unique experiences that inspire and challenge our young people as they navigate their journey through life.
To ensure that every young person is equipped and empowered to become the best version of themselves and able to demonstrate the St Christopher’s school values:
Always show Kindness to others
Just have Positivity in everything you do
Own your Creativity
Understand your Responsibility to yourself and others.
Respect each other
Never give up, show Determination
Your Honesty is valued.
We believe that success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important that the outcome. As a school we personalise our provision to ensure every child accesses the right curriculum pathway to achieve their full potential.
Our patron saint is St Christopher who we ask to protect us on our travels, wherever we may roam; keep us safe and guide us, always safely home.
We aim to provide a place of excellence where pupils can achieve their full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development. We will provide a safe, caring place where pupils and adults feel they can make a contribution and are valued as individuals, learning to respect themselves and others. We will strive to develop a partnership between students, parents, staff, governors and the community as a whole.
At St Christopher’s School we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school.
The Department for Education states that there is a need:
“To create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the
fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs”.
The five British Values are:
The rule of law:
strengths and show understanding for those who require support.
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs:
All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts and, in particular, our RE, PSHCE lessons provide excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding.
The school makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown, through for example, sporting events, a range of visits and LEAD events. leaders.
