Ethos, Mission and Vision statement

Our school ethos embodies the values advocated by our school’s community and provides the atmosphere for life in and beyond the school itself. It is a focus for the unity of values and purpose among the diversity of the members of the school community. It is rooted in the religious beliefs and values associated with the foundation of the school and influences our school mission and vision.

The school ethos statement incorporates the school mission statement identified in its historic deeds.

Ethos Statement:

Recognizing its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Churches at parish and diocesan level. The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.’ 

Mission [as identified in the school deeds]:

‘The school will aim to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.  It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.’

Our Vision

‘With God all things are possible’

Our vision for education is deeply Christian, and rooted in theology [Matthew 19 V26] 

Our vision ‘With God all things are possible’ speaks powerfully into the heart of
all we do.

At Benedict Biscop ‘With God all things are possible’ is our way of expressing
our role in the classroom, the staffroom, the yard and our wider community.
We seek through our Christian ethos to ensure all things are possible as:

  • We educate our children through our curriculum, our practice and
    policies – giving them the skills, knowledge and understanding that will
    prepare them for life.
  • We seek to give hope and aspiration to children, staff and parents.
    Giving both ambition and coping mechanisms for when things don’t
    always go as intended, in the knowledge of a God who loves them.
  • We see and encourage all to see each other as made in the image of
    God, but unique with children, staff and families valuing one another as
    God’s children.
  • We serve our community in school and beyond, by building relationships
    just as God lives in community as the Holy Trinity. We are most in God’s
    image when we live in community, and that is how we encourage each
    other to flourish.

Our vision ‘with God all things are possible’ is grounded in worship, prayer
and practice; as well as in our leadership and governance so we can be the
family that God calls Benedict Biscop Church of England Academy to be.

Helping children to realise their potential. Aspiring to excellence in all aspects of life
