Vision and Ethos

Our Vision
Our vision is our aspiration for all of our stakeholders in our school. It captures the work of the school in its entirety and is vibrantly alive in the atmosphere of the school. Our vision is reinforced and lived out by some of our unique family-style structures and approaches throughout school life.
 
This vision was created in 2019 with involvement from all stakeholder groups in our school community.

As part of our Shelford Star, we focus on four key values:

  • Responsibility
  • Resilience
  • Creativity

Also see our policies for our behaviour policy which shows how we put these values into practice.
A Selection of some of the hymns we sing:
A New Commandment, I give unto you
That you love one another, as I have loved you,
That you love one another, as I have loved you. 
 
By this, shall all me know that you are my disciples,
If you have love, one for another. 
By this, shall all me know that you are my disciples,
If you have love, one for another.
