The school Mission Statement was agreed by the whole school community:
Listen, learn, love and laugh as part of God's family.
These words are very important to us and they underpin everything we do in school:
We believe we are here to:
• Serve the community of our village (Slyne-with-Hest) and our families from wider afield who are part of our community. As such we listen to each other in order to flourish together.
• Establish and foster a love of learning. As a church school we strive for the highest educational standards but within a shared belief that education is far more than learning facts or achieving a standard – to educate effectively we believe we are developing the whole child (mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually) and as such put worship and RE / PSHE / PE/ Music and the Arts as vital strands of what we offer.
• Love ‘We love’ because God first loved us and we seek to demonstrate that in our dealing with all members of the community – that is not easy and not always a saying ‘yes’ to everyone but follows the model that Jesus gave. This also links to our Bible verse where we seek to ‘Encourage one another and build each other up’ (1 Thessalonians 5 v11) – every member of our school community is unique and special in God’s eyes and as such needs to be valued, included and encouraged to be the best that they can be.
• Laugh and share in the ups and downs of life together.
All this takes place in the knowledge that we are part of God’s family.
School Vision Statement
At St Luke’s Slyne-with-Hest Church of England Primary School, we are committed to promoting the highest possible standards of teaching and learning, to enable everyone to fulfil their potential. We will always put the best interests and well-being of the children at the heart of everything we do.
Our vision is to empower everyone to acquire, demonstrate, articulate and value knowledge and skills that will support them, as life-long learners, to participate in and contribute to God’s global world and practise the core Christian and British values of the school.
