The Village Federation Vision Statement

 

Opening our eyes to find meaningful happiness – learning, achieving and growing together as a family

Our Vision:

The Village Federation believes in providing a secure and caring atmosphere for families, staff, governors, our neighbours and most of all, the children in our care. As Church schools, we want to ensure that we are working for the common good and that everything we do is underpinned by deeply Christian values that create a foundation for everyone to thrive, surrounded by love and an atmosphere where we can open our eyes to find meaningful happiness – learning, achieving and growing together as a family.

Fulfilling the Vision:

As a federation we want everyone to:

  • feel a genuine sense of belonging within a nurturing community, surrounded by warmth and love so that they feel cared for, safe and part of a loving family that develops respect for others, open-mindedness and empathy;
  • have a sense of self-worth and pride in who they are so that they are able to face challenges with resilience, determination and the belief that we can always learn new things and improve in all areas of life;
  • have a sense of self-worth and pride in who they are so that they are able to face challenges with resilience, determination and the belief that we can always learn new things and improve in all areas of life;
  • be able to think critically about all they see, hear and experience so that they can be compassionately inquisitive, identify truth and understand the complexities of our world in a deep and meaningful way;
  • to recognise themselves as a global citizen who is part of a richly diverse world so that they can interact positively wherever they go, contributing positively to society and to the planet;
  • feel a deep and resounding desire for learning so that they will always want to know more in all areas of their lives, feeling the joy of new experience and knowledge and leading to a more profound and connected understanding of the world and other people;
  • develop the skills that they need to succeed in the world so that they can find independence, solve-problems, and be resourceful;
  • find bravery so that they can make mistakes, debate and know that it is okay to have different views;
  • recognise that not everything comes easily and that everyone has strengths and areas that they find more challenging, so that they can set aspirational goals, unhindered by any sense of barrier;
  • be able to express themselves openly whilst remaining considerate of others so that they can communicate effectively, be polite and be honest without fear, but also with kindness and patience;
  • understand how to be well, both physically and mentally in a fast-paced and ever-changing world so that they are able to provide self-care, ask for help when they need to and find meaningful happiness in their lives.
