Kirk Smeaton C of E VC Primary School

Let God's love shine as we care for each other and learn together.

 James 1:17 - Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

 

 We use the school ethos of 'Let God's light shine, as we care for each other and learn together' as a starting point to all we do.  This is linked to the SHINE rules in school.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SHINE stands for Safe, Healthy, Independent, Nurturing and Equal and these keywords underpin the work we strive for in developing the whole child. We believe that every child has a talent to be nurtured;  This means that every child who attends our school, regardless of their gender, race, culture, or disability is given the same opportunity, encouragement and inspiration to achieve their full potential. We nurture our children as individuals; helping them every day to develop emotionally, physically and spiritually.

 

We are a Church of England school and work closely with the diocese.  Please visit  https://www.leeds.anglican.org/ for more information. We are part of the enhanced package and as such access a range of training and support. 

We follow and work from the guidance from the Diocese 'Valuing All God’s Children Guidance for Church of England schools on challenging homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying'.  Please see the link for more information.
