As a Christian school our vision is paramount: ‘Learning, Caring, Growing Together’. This vision is underpinned by the parable of ‘The Good Samaritan’ and we encourage all children to follow our core school values of Compassion, Honesty, Respect, Kindness, Friendship, Forgiveness and Love. Our vision and values are truly embraced by all, not only in our collective worship but in everything we do.
At St. Bede C of E Primary Academy we aim to enrich the education of the children by providing a range of extra-curricular activities. We therefore have an established Ethos Committee which has been a vital part of school life for over three years. Consisting of a group of Year 5 and 6 children, staff and Church representatives, we aim to develop our Christian distinctiveness, promote our school values, enhance children’s education and develop links within the community.
The Committee meets every Thursday throughout the year. During these sessions, we discuss aspects of our school’s commitment to our Christian ethos, work on our school vision and decide on fundraisers to help support our chosen charity: ‘Children with Cancer UK’. This charity was selected by the committee after thorough research. Other activities involve planning and delivering collective worship, monitoring prayer areas and delivering presentations to visitors.
