Church of England schools are inclusive and look to equally serve those who are of the Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith.
Salcombe C of E Primary School firmly believes that Christian principles should underpin all of our work with children. The school community has decided that we would like our children to grow up in our school to understand the Christian values of:
How is respect earned & can it be lost?
What have you done for someone else today?
How powerful is the word sorry?
How do we develop and secure trust in others?
How can you help the world become a better place?
How do we celebrate the world, people, our achievements and the school?
The ethos at Salcombe Primary School is to provide a stimulating Christian environment that creates an enjoyable atmosphere of positive endeavour for all. We believe it is the right of all children to be given access to the whole curriculum, which enables them to have high expectations and achieve high standards.
Children’s development and progress is best achieved through high expectations and the fostering of independent learning. It is the responsibility of the individual students to behave in a co-operative manner, which enables quality learning to take place. We also believe in facilitating the development of the children’s diverse potential enabling them to take their place in society.
Our Aims are:
- To provide a Christian environment, which develops the children’s spiritual understanding
- To offer pupils a broad and balanced curriculum, which facilitates the development of knowledge, skills and understanding
- To develop every pupil’s self-esteem through promoting self-discipline so that each individual achieves his or her true potential
- To develop the children’s creative abilities enabling them to have enquiring flexible minds
- To develop the children’s social, moral and cultural understanding with an awareness and celebration of the multicultural world in which we live
- To develop an aptitude for lifelong learning throughout the whole school community
