Digging Deep, Learning Together, Embracing Life to the Full
Friendship, Forgiveness, Perseverance, Courage, Compassion and Thankfulness
Chudleigh Knighton’s School Vision- Where did it come from?
Digging Deep has a visual reference to our school emblem and history of our immediate local area. Shovels and pickaxes on our school logo represent the historic clay cutters that worked hard in the claypits nearby. Digging deep refers to digging deep in our learning, delving deeper as learners, persevering when faced with challenges, finding courage within ourselves to face personal challenges or even finding the strength to forgive others.
Learning Together embodies the children, staff and parents of school working collaboratively and cooperatively, developing support skills and nurturing skills towards their peers. It also refers to our wider learning community that includes: our Hub, our Trust, the TVLC, our parish community and parental involvement and engagement.
Embracing life to the full encourages children to aspire and flourish to be the best version of themselves, making the most of a wide range of opportunities presented to them. By being inspired by the work of Jesus and his example, we give our children a strong foundation for life, achieving their best for the world around them and for themselves. We teach and empower children that they have the ability to make changes and are able to make a positive and compassionate contribution to the world. We also encourage appreciation and thankfulness for all that we have and this amazing world around us- at school, at home, at a local/national/global level.
Our School Vision
Our Christian Values
Chudleigh Knighton C of E Primary School firmly believes that Christian principles should underpin all of our work with children. The school community chose the following Christian values that give focus to our learning: Friendship, Forgiveness, Perseverance, Courage, Compassion and Thankfulness.
The Ethos at Chudleigh Knighton C of E 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. We will ensure that children are happy, stimulated and challenged so that they can flourish, reach and exceed their potential.
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
