School Vision & Values
At Brightwell cum Sotwell CofE Primary School, our vision is to develop well-rounded, confident and responsible individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential. To do this, we are committed to providing a positive, safe and inclusive learning community that thrives on the Christian values of friendship, respect and tolerance. Our focus is on fostering independence, encouraging children to flourish, nurturing their growth and instilling a spirit of passion for lifelong learning through a foundation built on the Christian faith.
We believe that true friendship and respect form the foundation of a happy school environment and have built an atmosphere of empathy, understanding, and kindness where every member of our community feels valued, supported and celebrated for their unique contributions.
In our diverse world, we recognise the importance of tolerance and inclusion. We embrace and celebrate a range of cultures, backgrounds and perspectives within our school community. By promoting an atmosphere of tolerance, we encourage open-mindedness and the ability to embrace differences and to learn from one another.
We are committed to nurturing independence in our children so they feel confident to take ownership of their learning journey where they can discover their passions and pursue their interests. By providing a supportive and stimulating environment, we help develop confident, resilient and self-reliant individuals who are ready to face the challenges of the future.
To achieve this vision, we recognise:
Our responsibility to provide strong leadership and high quality teaching and learning
The importance of our close and positive partnership with parents.
The essential role of the school in the local community
The strength we gain from our work with other schools
