'A school where every child can shine.'
Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils in being confident, thriving citizens.
'Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.'
Kirk Langley Church of England Primary School is committed to being a school where parents, carers and our family community know us by our actions. Our vision is to promote educational excellence within an environment that is dedicated to the living teachings of Jesus Christ in our daily life. It is built on an atmosphere of respect, sensitivity to individual needs; where children’s self-esteem and confidence grow because they are able to make mistakes without fear. We believe our deeply Christian foundation recognises the importance of experience, personal values and respect for the beliefs of others.
Our vision is translated into explicit teaching and learning both in RE, Collective Worship and across the broad balanced curriculum to show our children the value of Jesus’ promise to see ‘life in all its fullness’.
At Kirk Langley C of E Primary our practice embraces the spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, moral and social development of all our children. Our vision is dedicated to the four basic elements which permeate education:
The vision, in line with the Church of England’s role as the established Church, is for the common good of the whole community and its environment. It celebrates diversity; respects freedom of religion and belief, and encourages others to contribute from the depths of their own traditions and understandings.
The school recognises that parents have the right to withdraw their child from RE in whole or in part, and provide alternative work.
