Our School Vision
Our school vision underpins everything we do at Collaton St. Mary
Achieving and Flourishing in our Christian Community
It is at the core of everything we do and we encourage our pupils to be the best version of themselves.
As a Church of England school, we work together to develop the character of our pupils so they can achieve and flourish. We explore 5 ‘Character Gateways’ throughout the year where pupils engender it in their actions and exemplify it in their learning journals.
Our character gateways are underpinned by biblical theology. These stories are pivotal in supporting our pupils understanding of our vision and are explored in depth during Acts of Worship and day- today learning.
Our 5 Character Gateways consist of:
Citizenship • Leadership • Explorers • Expression • Flourishing
The Good Samaritan exemplifies showing compassion and empathy for anyone
Nehemiah exemplifies drive through rebuilding Jerusalem
Tabitha exemplifies showing compassion and empathy for those less fortunate.
Moses exemplifies how to be a determined leader
