courage, compassion, creativity
Although a small school, Bosbury has a BIG impact. Our wish that children flourish creatively, leaving the school equipped for lifelong learning with rich and happy memories. That they have the courage to challenge and ask big questions, develop compassion, have a sense of their own spirituality and strive for their best and the best for their community.
This vision is rooted in the parable of the mustard seed:
‘The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest. Matthew 13:31-32
As in the Mustard Seed parable we have a positive impact in the community and beyond. Just as the birds nest in the tree in the parable we have many community members who are supported by the school. The children can articulate many ways in which they have an impact on the wider world. This is explained to parents when they come to visit our school. The fact that the school is oversubscribed demonstrates that this is something that families value. It is important to us that we must avoid diminishing the dignity of any individual child, family or colleague to a stereotype or problem. We strive to ensure the growth of every member of our community.
Spirituality is the heartbeat of our school. It is how we understand ourselves, how we wonder about beauty in nature, the universe and beyond: having confidence and compassion to challenge ourselves and others in the pursuit of justice. We ask ‘Big Questions’ about our local and global community. Our core Christian values - courage, compassion and creativity – encourage us to be brave, flourish in what we do and empower the whole school community to be the best that they can be.
The Church of England is committed to an education that enables people to live life in all its fullness and fulfils the words of Jesus in John 10:10 –
“I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10
All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the Church of England Education Office's framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)
Our last SIAMS inspection was carried out on April 27th 2023. We were graded as 'EXCELLENT'.
All children and members of staff are invited to join together and worship every day. Collective worship takes many forms and throughout the week our children may experience a visit from Rev Mandy, the Open the Book Team, outdoor services with just their Key Stage, child led worship, a celebration of achievements and a true Bosbury singing worship which raises the roof!
