Our vision is something that motivates and inspires us and keeps us focused on where we want to go as a school. It’s a vision for everyone in the school, the children, staff, parents and governors. Our vision is:
We’ve chosen ‘excellence, enjoyment and achievement’ as our key aims because:

Going the extra mile
Learning from our mistakes
Challenging for all
Aiming to be the best!
To us, enjoyment means…
Being excited about learning!
Being enthusiastic and engaging
Experiencing a variety of opportunities
Feeling safe and secure
To us, achievement means…
Everyone developing and making progress
Feeling proud of yourself
Everyone feeling valued
Appropriate challenge for all
Reaching our potential
Our values are the ways that we seek to do things at St Helen’s. As a Church of England School, these are based on the Christian faith, but are values that are important to us, whatever our faith or background.
We talk and learn about these through collective worship and in class, but we try to put them into practice in every situation at school.
Currently, we have 18 values that we work through as a school over time, but we will be working with children, parents, staff and governors to choose a smaller set of values from this list, which we feel are particularly important to us as a school community.
The 18 values are:
Respect and Reverence
