Building a better future together....

based on Christian Values...based on Christian Values

Here at SS Simon and Jude we encourage children to understand Christian values such as forgiveness, trust, faith, compassion and love. We promote Christian values through the celebrations such as Christmas, Easter and Harvest, and through prayer and reflection. Through prayer and reflection we also work to take each child on their own faith journey.

Here at SS Simon and Jude we want all our children to grow in their own faith. For our younger children, linking the major festivals gives a structure within which to deepen their knowledge of their own faith story.

Here at SS Simon and Jude we promote lifelong learning through the progression of  key skills, such as reading and writing but also through developing life experiences such as going to the Post Office.

...by promoting high standards...by promoting high standards

Here at SS Simon and Jude we promote the very highest academic standards, moving from concrete operations, to the abstract ensuring mental agility based on sound practice. All our children learn their times tables in our Assertive Mentoring Programme and old fashioned life skills for a modern child.

...through nurturing enquiring minds...through nurturing enquiring minds

Here at SS Simon and Jude we encourage all our children to get a love of learning that takes them beyond the classroom into the wider world. Children are able to investigate and find answers to the questions they have generated. Developing an inquiring mind is a key skill in the promotion of deep learning as well as leading you down new unexplored paths.....

...by valuing ourselves and others...by valuing ourselves and others

Here at SS Simon and Jude children are encouraged to go on a path of self-discovery. Children learn how to take responsibility for their own learning and personal development, as well as how to treat and respect others.

...by striving to succeed...by striving to succeed

Here at SS Simon and Jude we work together to overcome any obstacles, however challenging, to achieve our goals. We try and try again, building resilience which helps us deal with any disappointments on our journey to success.

...through the celebration of diversity...through the celebration of diversity

Here at SS Simon and Jude we believe that our differences make us stronger. Learning from each other, our traditions and our shared history.
