Bierton CE Combined School

Aim High, Achieve Success, Find Your Sparkle and Shine

Aims & Values

Vision Statement

At Bierton CE Combined we are determined to create an inclusive culture of learning where all children will aim high and be challenged to achieve to the best of their abilities. We aim to nurture a life-long love of learning and empower our children to become respected citizens preparing them for the opportunities and challenges in the future.

Aims of the school

We aim to develop in all children not only their academic potential but also an understanding of good citizenship, based on principles of truth, justice, courage, respect and tolerance. We want to create a sense of self-esteem, self-confidence and self-worth in every pupil, as well as help each pupil to realise their own potential.

In order to achieve this we seek to help pupils develop lively and enquiring minds with an ability to apply themselves to tasks and the skill to interpret the world around them, whilst helping them acquire the knowledge and skills demanded by society in the adult world.
We recognise the importance of home, school and the local community working in partnership and by having a relationship between the staff and pupils which reinforces expected attitudes and behaviour in a friendly and caring way, enhancing the quality of school life for all. We promote understanding and tolerance of others and an awareness of the wider world.

These aims are supported by a ‘broad and balanced’ curriculum which is carefully structured to build on prior successes.

  1. To create a safe, caring Christian environment in which all are given the opportunity to develop spiritually, intellectually, aesthetically and physically. 
  2. To promote the highest standards in all aspects of the curriculum so that children achieve their full potential.
  3. To foster and develop effective learners.
  4. To provide a broad and balanced curriculum consistent with the N.C. which enables children to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to their future lives.
  5. To help children develop self-confidence, self-reliance and self-discipline so that they can achieve personal fulfilment.
  6. To value each other irrespective of race, creed, culture, gender or age.
  7. To encourage community involvement so that children recognise the need to be of service to others.
  8. To use all our resources to the best of our ability to provide quality staff, equipment and accommodation.
  9. To ensure equal opportunity for all.
  10. To enable our pupils to become independent, confident learners.
  11. To enable our children to take increasing responsibility for their own learning.
  12. To give our learners the opportunities to develop skills to work co-operatively with others – to share ideas, support and be supported.

Being a Church School

Bierton provides a quality education within a caring Christian environment. We aim to create a happy, safe environment where children and adults can respect and value each other. We encourage our children to take pride in belonging to our school and all that it offers.
Our Christian Vision is that 'At Bierton CE Combined School, we don't hide out light. We aim high, achieve success, find our sparkle and shine.' 

"Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:15 -17. 

By providing excellent learning opportunities, our aim is for each and every child to reach their full potential both academically and personally. All children at Bierton are encouraged and guided to become rounded individuals with an understanding of good citizenship, based on principles of truth, justice, courage, respect and tolerance. We want to create a sense of self-esteem, self-confidence and self-worth in every pupil, as well as help each pupil to realise their own potential. In order to achieve this, we utilise children’s natural curiosity and sense of wonder and seek to help pupils develop lively and enquiring minds with a growth mindset and ability to apply themselves to tasks and the skill to interpret the world around them, whilst helping them acquire the knowledge and skills demanded by society in the adult world.

We recognise the importance of home, school, church and the local community working in partnership for the best outcome for our children. All staff endeavour to foster relationships with pupils which reinforce expected attitudes and behaviour in a friendly and caring way, enhancing the quality of school life for all. Promoting an understanding and tolerance of others and an awareness of the wider world ensures that children leave Bierton with a compassionate and open mindset. These aims are supported by a ‘broad and balanced’ curriculum which is carefully structured to build on prior successes.

Bierton CE Combined School has five Christian Values which underpin all that we do and allow us to demonstrate our vision clearly. These values are: Love, Cooperation, Respect, Responsibility and Honesty.
