Vision, Values & Ethos
For 170 years St George Church of England Primary School has served the community in and around Bristol’s city centre.
We strive to protect this heritage and innovate, so that present and future generations may also benefit from a school committed to excellence.
'Be the Light’
Matthew 5:14 You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.
The ultimate worth of each person in our school is at the centre of all we do. We value the ‘light’ of every individual and we seek to nurture that light and encourage each of us to be the light to others. We seek to do this by:
Showing dignity and respect.
We … take the time to listen, understand and be fair
cherish the things that make each of us unique
see the good in each other
Growing in wisdom, knowledge and skills
We … provide an engaging curriculum which enables all to flourish
collaborate and so learn from each other
Prioritising character development
We … make the most of opportunities to develop resilience, confidence and independence
create a culture of high aspirations
work towards global, social and environmental justice
Being community and living well together
We… spread joy by serving local people and nature through song and action
provide opportunities to seek forgiveness and reconciliation
seek to develop strong relationships built on mutual trust and respect for all
Learning about, sharing and living our Christian Community Code helps us to become the best that we can be…now and in the future.
Our core values are:
We have a sense of community and a commitment to excellence for all children in our care.
We welcome all regardless of their faith or belief.
We aim to ensure that each one of our children feels safe, secure, confident and enthusiastic about their learning experiences.
We are a multi-cultural school and celebrate the beliefs of Christianity and other world religions and invite the children to share their beliefs with us.
We welcome the variety of knowledge and experience that our children bring to us from their home backgrounds.
We believe that every child matters.We work with children and parents and carers to create a learning environment that includes and supports everyone.
We believe that children learn best when home and school work together for their benefit. We value this partnership.
