Our Vision & Values

Our Vision: FLOURISH and let your light shine!

                             "Let your light shine" Matthew 5:16          

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 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 5:16

These words of Jesus are our school’s vision.  They inspire and motivate our whole school community.  Jesus reminded us in Matthew’s gospel that we are lights for the world.  As we seek to follow him, we can share his light with others and change the world, through our words and actions! 

We believe that every child and adult can FLOURISH and shine.  We recognise that we are all special in God’s eyes and have unique talents, which we nurture so that each of us has the opportunity to become the very best person that God intended us to be. We want to encourage our children to aspire to great things and we want our lights to shine and to make a difference. 

In addition to letting their light shine on others, we want our children to recognise the value of their own light: to be proud of their personal achievements; to value and respect themselves; and to know how loved they are both by God and by others. 

As an inclusive school, we warmly welcome families of all faiths or none.  We celebrate the cultural and religious diversity of our school community in a caring and spiritually supportive environment. Our Christian ethos enables us to help our children develop their spirituality and sense of moral purpose.  

Our Values: Courage; Love; Joy & Truth

These values are woven into all aspects of life and teaching within our school. At Park Street C of E Primary School, we show love to everyone without expecting anything in return. We show courage by being the best we can be, even when things are difficult. We show joy by bringing joy to others, being thankful and looking at life with positivity. We show truth by being reflective and honest with ourselves and others.
