At Tipton St John we aim to provide a learning environment that is happy, secure, exciting and well-ordered. We believe that each child is a gift from God and we celebrate their uniqueness at the same time as teaching and helping them to live as part of a community.

To achieve this we aim:

  • to inspire children towards excellence, within the taught curriculum and beyond
  • to ensure that the school is a place where children can explore and develop their interests, abilities and personalities
  • to provide a variety of situations where children can develop the personal and social skills of independence, curiosity, self- confidence, self-respect, understanding of others and co- operation
  • to provide an environment where each child feels secure and special
  • to demonstrate Christian values in the way we live, teach and learn
  • to provide rich learning experiences where children’s thinking is challenged and where children achieve their best both within and beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum
  • to create opportunities for children to experience awe and wonder
  • to teach every child to consider the needs of others
  • to teach each child to respect the religious, spiritual and moral values of others whilst considering their own attitudes, values and beliefs
  • to work in partnership with the local community
  • to foster an individual and shared responsibility for our heritage and environment and to encourage a sense of care and stewardship for all forms of life
