Church School, Vision and Values
'Learning for life, building a firm foundation'
At All Saints, we believe that our Christian vision of 'Learning for life, building a firm foundation', underpins and influences everything that we do in school. The biblical basis for this vision is Matthew 7:24-27, The Wise and Foolish Builders. This parable underpins our Christian values of Love, Hope, Truth, Faith and Peace. These are also the names of or house teams.
At All Saints, we live out our Christian values with them being at the heart of everything we do; they help shape the way in which we guide our pupils to respect and care for others and develop the skills to be good citizens. We aim to foster an aspirational lifelong love of learning and personal growth within a caring and nurturing environment where everyone is valued and respected.
The route to our vision of Learning for life, building a firm foundation is guided by our Christian values of Love, Truth, Peace, Faith and Hope. These are also the names of our house teams. Every week, we notice and celebrate pupils who are demonstrating our Christian values through our Values award. In addition, children who demonstrate our Christian vision receive our weekly Vision award. These are presented at the close of our whole-school worship. In addition, pupil Vision Leaders from Year 6 look for children who are living out our values and are contributing towards our church school vision.

Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools report, June 2016.
All Saints is a Church of England School - it seeks to be distinctively Christian yet inclusive of people of all faiths and none. We are part of the Diocese of Coventry and are supported by the Diocesan Board of Education. We have close links with All Saints Church; we hold services there and Peter Wrigley leads regular worship in school. Members of the congregation, are Foundation members of our governing body.
All Church schools receive ‘Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools’ (SIAMS) inspections, approximately every 5 years. SIAMS focuses on the effect that the Christian ethos and vision of a church school have on the children and young people who attend it. The principal objective of an inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.

Every half term we have a different 'Christian Value' theme for our assemblies. Children learn about this value during assemblies throughout the half term and displays relating to this theme can be found in the hall and in Areas of Reflection in the classrooms.
