Visions and Values
At Norton Juxta Kempsey CE Primary School our vision is:
What is our vision?
Together, with the love and joy of God, we will discover, develop & maximise our unique potential.
What is the Christian theology that underpins our vision?
The Father has loved us so much! He loved us so much that we are called children of God. And we really are his children. – 1 John 3:1 – ICB
Our school bible verse is taken from the New Testament and the book of 1 John. The third chapter of 1 John focuses mostly on the concept of love, something that has always been at the forefront of our vision here at NJK, as well as being at the heart of the Christian faith. Christians believe that because of His love, God not only calls us His children, He actually makes us His children.
God’s love for all people inspires us to give love in abundance. We value and care for ourselves, others and the world around us as God's creation; demonstrating our values of friendship, compassion, forgiveness and respect.
We believe that each and every child and adult is wonderfully made in their own right, and we respect and value each person's unique set of abilities, skills and characters.
What does this look like at NJK?
At NJK we want our pupils, families and staff to experience God’s amazing love for us.
We believe that each person is wonderfully made by God and we want everyone to flourish and reach their unique potential as a child of God.
We aim to nurture all members of our school community and celebrate our differences.
We want our school to become the hub of our local community and an integral part of our society; building and joining communities both locally and beyond.
Striving for the highest possible standards of achievement and behaviour in a stimulating environment; we will value pupil independence in order to develop a deeper level of learning.
We will provide a curriculum which focuses not merely on academic potential, but embraces the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, enabling our pupils to become active citizens of the future.
Love will be at the very centre of everything we do and joy will be evident in every part of our school. At NJK we want our pupils to thrive through God’s amazing love for us.
