Hoole CE Primary School - Vision & Values Statement
"Let your light shine"

We work together to support children to let their lights shine brightly as:
- Enthusiastic, curious, independent thinkers – motivated, reflective and resilient learners who persevere when faced with challenges and who celebrate their achievements and those of their friends;
- Respectful, compassionate and kind friends who are able to work with others, forgive, trust, support and communicate with others;
- Confident, thankful individuals who understand their own worth; how to stay safe and healthy and how to manage feelings and relationships;
- Tolerant and responsible citizens who show respect for others, and a commitment to appreciate and contribute positively to the world around them.
To enable children's lights to shine brightly we work together to:
- Provide a safe environment where all individuals are valued;
- Consistently expect the best from pupils to encourage them to aim high, have a go and strive to be proud;
- Collaborate as a staff team to support each other, share ideas and maximise every opportunity for children to grow their talents and feel proud of their achievements;
- Consistently model and celebrate the core values we want children to show such as resilience, forgiveness thankfulness, determination, enthusiasm, compassion, hope and kindness;
- Keep on learning ensuring that our team provides quality education and memorable learning for pupils, proactively preparing children to succeed and achieve.
- Reflect our core values are reflected in our curriculum and everything we do to build a just, harmonious and purposeful climate for learning.
Our Core Values
- Koinonia - Unity/Partnership/Community
We are proud to be a Church of England School with a vision for every child to ‘Let Your Light Shine’ as stated in Matthew 5:16 Sermon on the Mount. This translates into our children being nurtured as unique individuals with skills and talents which we seek to identify and promote through activities both within the school and beyond. Throughout the school we celebrate individual and collective success through our displays, celebration assemblies, Shine Corridor and newsletters. Our ambition is to make sure every child is equipped with the skills they need to succeed as they progress on to High School and the wider world.
We provide a diverse curriculum, which evolves from the National Curriculum Programmes of Study using pupils’ interests and our locality as starting points. We believe that learning is most productive when children know what they are aiming to achieve, when the basic skills of literacy and number are firmly embedded in daily practice and when they are given the opportunity to apply those skills through problem solving, independent research and teamwork challenges. We nurture our pupils to develop resilience and the tenacity to be successful in their goals and to grow into happy, healthy, ambitious individuals.
Our school grounds offer a wide range of opportunities for children to expand their learning beyond the classroom; we have an active Forest Schools program; educational and residential visits are an integral aspect of our curriculum and we are continually exploring opportunities offered through computing and digital media.
With strong family values we nurture our children to become proud of themselves and to uphold the best of British Values in their attitudes and behaviour. Through collective worship and daily activities we encourage children to develop spiritually and to be reflective learners.
Whilst our Christian Values of Family and Forgiveness lie at the heart of all we do, we pride ourselves as being inclusive and embrace all faiths and cultures.
