Our Vision and Values
Our Vision is:
‘To give our children the best possible start to the rest of their lives.'
As a Church of England school we have chosen to illustrate this vision by using a bible story – just like Jesus used stories to explain God’s words.
We have chosen the parable of the Sower of the Seeds. In the story a man sows some seeds on his land and they fall on different types of soil. The seeds that fall on the on good soil flourish and grow well. We consider our children to be the seeds which have landed on the rich soil that is Crockham Hill school and all it offers.
We strive to improve and enrich our 'soil' so that we can continue to help our children thrive to their full potential.
Our Mission, which is the route map by which we will reach our Vision, states:
As a school at the heart of the local community, our mission is to provide a safe, supportive and inspiring learning environment, which challenges every child to succeed, by recognising their individual needs and aspirations; all underpinned by our Christian ethos.
Our Values help create the ethos and culture of the school. We hold the Church of England values close to our heart but we have teased out our own specific values which we feel are important to our school in our context. You can see are values below; they are the bed rock of how we expect our school community to behave.
