Vision, Aims and Values

Our aims and values

The Aims of Burneston Primary School are:

  • To give insight into the Christian faith and encourage its practical outworking in worship, service, values and attitudes.
  • To deliver a sound, broadly based and relevant education.
  • To create a safe and happy place where everyone enjoys working and playing together.
  • To develop self respect and a caring attitude which involves valuing ourselves and each other, embracing all individual differences.
  • To help pupils to develop spiritually, mentally, physically and morally into well balanced, reliable citizens who are willing to take responsibility for their immediate environment and the wider world.
  • To encourage every child to strive to do their best in every task which they attempt.

Our Christian values sit at the core of everything we do and our vision is for our children to develop creativity, compassion, fellowship, friendship, forgiveness, respect, trust and wisdom during their time at our school. These values and what they mean are displayed, discussed and explored through RE lessons, Collective Worship and as part of wider school curriculum.

Our eight Christian values are:

creation, compassion, fellowship, friendship, forgiveness, respect, trust, wisdom
