`Development of the whole child within a unique, nurturing environment`
At Lee Common CE School we strive to make the very best of our unique setting to provide a nurturing environment in which our girls and boys can thrive.
We see Lee Common CE School as an outstanding church school rooted in local tradition and distinctively Christian values. It is essential for everyone within the Lee Common Family to instill the values of community, achievement and enjoyment in our young children.
We strive to provide the very best opportunities for the children in our school – academic, artistic, athletic, moral and spiritual. We aim for all pupils to achieve and progress very well at our school. We believe that young children learn best when taught using a holistic approach which embraces all subjects across the whole curriculum.
We are focused on the development of the whole child. Our pupils’ progress and wellbeing is our core purpose at all times.
Our Christian Vision
We see Lee Common CE School as an outstanding church school rooted in local tradition. Our Christian Vision is that ‘At Lee Common CE School, we start as little mustard seeds and grow into strong trees, each one of us making a difference to our world. We grow stronger in our unique, nurturing community.’
“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 of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.” (Matthew 13:31-32)
Lee Common CE School’s six Christian Values guide our community in everything that we do. They provide the roots of our foundation and help us to encompass and deliver our Christian Vision.
These values are:
Promoting Fundamental British Values
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Key Values are:
· rule of law
· individual liberty
· mutual respect
· tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
