What is it we want for our pupils at St Jude’s Church of England Primary School?

The answer is simple: We want it all. 

As a Church of England school, we work hard to ensure we provide a loving environment for all God’s children to be cared for and to flourish. We want our children to understand the importance of faith and to live out our school values in all that they do, so that they are ready to be part of God’s changing world.

We want our children to experience ’life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10) to achieve their very best academically, to bring curiosity and challenge to everything they hear and see, and to engage in new experiences together that shape the adults they will become.

We want to ignite their excitement about learning both within and beyond the classroom, and to be proud of themselves, their community and the part they play.  We want them to explore the world, build strong relationships and develop a moral compass that helps them make difficult decisions.

This ambitious vision is founded on the certain hope that, as St Paul wrote, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13).

With all of this in mind, and put quite simply, we want our children to be ‘Learning for Life, Aiming for Excellence; Ready to Take Our Place in God’s Changing World.'
