Let your light shine!
The Nethersole Church of England Academy and Nursery has a Christian foundation that inspires our life and work. Following the teaching of Jesus, we accept the challenge:
‘to be light [living in our community and reaching out beyond it], bringing out the God-colours in the world.’ Matthew 5:16
At the heart of our school is the belief that everyone is a child of God, fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. Our work therefore, is to nurture and love every individual, children and adults, to find and develop their gifts, overcome barriers and enable them to grow in confidence to flourish - to let their light shine as the very best God version of themselves.
Effective teaching and learning underpins this.
Our Christ led vision is for a world of justice, respect, and love, and of people who are not afraid to love and sacrifice themselves for others. Our inspiration is Jesus, who loves us in sacrifice, forgives us and reminds us that we each have something special to do to bring out the God colours of the world. We believe that there is a space for everyone to shine brightly and differently and that this adds to the richness of our school family, our community and the wider world.
Our Christian vision for everyone to be unique shining lights in God’s world is illuminated by our biblically based Christian values that we learn to radiate in our daily lives - in our attitudes, relationships, behaviour, choices and decisions: - wisdom, forgiveness, respect and reverence, thankfulness, hope and community.
