First Federation Trust Vision - Church School Distinctiveness
This vision embraces the spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, moral and social development of all children. Everyone works to enable outstanding learning and teaching -putting children at the centre of all that they do. It is intended to be used by all schools within the Federation, regardless of setting, beliefs or traditions.
For church schools our Vision for children is:
St Paul writes in Philippians 4:8 'Whatever is true, whatever is noble , whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely'
Whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things!
'The righteous will flourish like a (palm) tree' Psalm 92.12.
With God's help we can achieve great things:
St Paul: 'I can do all things through him who gives me strength' Philippians 4.13
''Life in all its fullness''
At Hawkchurch Church of England Academy our school values are
a relationship of mutual affection between people. Friendship is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association.
persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success
is a positive feeling or action shown towards someone or something considered important, or held in high esteem or regard; it conveys a sense of admiration for good or valuable qualities; and it is also the process of honouring someone by exhibiting care, concern, or consideration for their needs or feelings.
refers to a facet of moral character and connotes positive and virtuous attributes such as integrity, truthfulness, straightforwardness, including straightforwardness of conduct, along with the absence of lying, cheating, theft, etc.
is a behavior marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern and consideration for others.
Pupils who display those values receive a certificate at our Celebrations Assembly
