Burchetts Green C.E Infant School - Ethos and School Community
At Burchetts Green we all adhere to the school's Christian ethos
which is expressed through our vision and its associated values
'Living life in all its fullness - an opportunity to flourish'
Trust, Compassion, Forgiveness, Endurance and Courage,
Peace, Reverence, Thankfulness and Friendship
Our purpose is to provide a happy and secure learning environment,
where everyone is cherished and encouraged to flourish.
We firmly believe learning is a lifelong experience of which we are all part.
We understand that learning takes place when an individual feels
happy and secure and this comes through developing self-worth and confidence.
Equipped with self-esteem and a zeal for life, every child will leave Burchetts Green CE Infant School well set for junior school and beyond.
It is the aim of the school and at the heart of its vision that every child leaves us with a well-developed and strong sense of self; feeling valued for who they are as well as what they have achieved.
Burchetts Green children are exposed to a huge variety of different experiences. At Burchetts Green, every child knows every teacher and every teacher knows every child. Older children are given increasing responsibility within the school community and take care of younger ones.
Through an ongoing dialogue embedded in our vision, values and faith, children are confident and comfortable in themselves as well as reminded that they are part of a wider community which includes the school, the village, the church and beyond. In so much as the school embraces the difference in each child, it teaches the children to embrace the world and all its differences with self- respect and tolerance.
