Values and Vision of the Spires Federation

 

To provide an aspirational education, which inspires all in our community so that they are happy, confident and equipped for life in all its fullness.

 

As schools we want to provide our pupils with the academic knowledge and skills that will provide the foundations for their future lives. We want to give our pupils the opportunity to be the best that they can be, ensuring that they have the best possible start to their education so that they are well prepared for secondary school, university and life. 

 

But we know that education is so much more than being able to read, write and count. It's about becoming more rounded, developing skills and abilities that are not measurable in tests, it's about developing relationships, respect for themselves, others, their communities. Opening Minds is all of this and more. It's about giving our children greater cultural capital so that they can appreciate the work of great musicians and artists, experience sporting opportunities, grow in confidence and raise their aspirations.

Success All members of the Spires Federation aspire to success - for each other and for themselves. We value individuality and respect equality and diversity.

 

Philippians 4:13 - ‘I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

 

Happiness - At the Spires Federation, we believe that children learn best when they are happy and secure. Staff teach best when they are happy and fulfilled in their work. As well as trusting God, we have to create a culture where our schools are happy and harmonious for all. 

  

The psalmist says: ‘You make known to me the path of life, you will fill me with joy in your presence.(Psalm 16 v 11) 

 

Inspire - We want to provide everyone with the opportunity of exploring the world through our broad and balanced curriculum and to raise the aspirations of both pupils and staff.

 

Proverbs 18:15 – ‘Wise men and women are always learning, always listening for fresh insights.’

 

Nurture The culture of the Spires Federation is that of a supportive, protective family that has high aspirations for all of its members.

 

Proverbs 22:6 – ‘Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

 

EverybodyThe Bible describes how Christians come together as a family. The members of our school family – pupils, parents, staff and Governors are interdependent: all are needed and valued and each person is important to the whole. We are working together to ensure all feel included, valued and bring benefit to the wider communities that we serve.

 

Corinthians 12:24-26 - But God has combined the members of the body….so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it.
