Our School

The Church of England’s vision for Education is as follows:

Our vision for education is deeply Christian, with Jesus' promise of 'life in all its fullness' at its heart.

In line with the Church of England's role as the established Church, our vision is for the common good of the whole community.

Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.

Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.

Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.

Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.


Our school vision embraces and builds upon this vision: 

Our School Vision

Governors have decided on ten key values that they felt are important to the school.

These were: 

  • Celebration 
  • Inclusion
  • Belief
  • Learning
  • Challenge
  • Caring 
  • Inspiration 
  • Family
  • Respect 
  • Creativity 

The ten values were introduced and discussed in a series of assemblies and children voted for the five values which they felt that best represented the nature of their school. Parents then voted on the underpinning statements which they believe represent our School. These values are displayed in our school and frequently referred to in our day to day life. 
Our approach to this emphasises the traditions that Runcton Holme is built on, that by working together we can have a strong and positive partnership for everyone involved in the school. This encourages inclusion and teamwork within our environment.

We all take care of one another - big children look out for the little ones. Our teachers know us really well.

We have confidence in ourselves.

We trust in God.

We like to use our imagination;
to sing, dance, paint, draw, play instruments,
write stories, pretend to be
