CofE Academy and Nursery

Inspire, Enjoy and Achieve, in the love of Jesus Christ

Visions and Values

As part of BDMAT (Birmingham Diocesan Multi Academies Trust) we share the same values and vision as all the school that form our MAT.
In September 2014 the governors re-examined its 'mission statement' and developed the following statement:

Inspire, enjoy and achieve, in the love of Jesus Christ

School Aims


  1. Provide a high quality learning experience for all children so that they have an equality of opportunity to achieve their full potential 
  2. Offer opportunities to worship God in the Church of England tradition
  3. Provide opportunities for the discovery and development of personal faith
  4. Be inclusive and embrace diversity
  5. Equip children with the skills and knowledge to lead a healthy lifestyle
  6. Develop an enjoyment of learning in order to prepare children for the next steps in life
  7. Promote a core set of values and skills which support the children to be full members of society


These aims were developed in 2015 in consultation with children, parents, staff and governors. The school also consulted with the Birmingham Diocesan Board of Education Trust.

Our values


The key values which our school promotes are:


Wisdom - we show wisdom by making Thy Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven our priority and asking God’s help to make right choices in what we do or don’t do and say.

Respect – we treat each other the way we would want to be treated and as individuals we honour God and are kind, polite, look after our the people, animals and our school.

Hope - we show hope through our prayers and hard work: asking God to show us how to make things better, in growing and learning.

Friendship – we show friendship by sharing with each other, being kind but also truthful and honest. We think of others with our actions and words. “It is more blessed to give than to receive”.

Forgiveness – we ask for forgiveness from the heart and through a wish not to repeat our mistakes. We offer forgiveness to others as God forgives us our trespasses.

Thankfulness - we show thankfulness by appreciating everyone’s uniqueness and the world we live in. We give thanks and appreciate the gifts God has given us.

Community – we value partnership with others and we think about how we can serve — especially those in need.

Reverence – We make time to reflect and explore about God. We are interested and enquiring through our words, actions and prayers.



This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
