Our Christian Vision
Flourishing in Body, Mind and Spirit
Our vision is for Lee Common CE School to be the first choice, first-school for our local community and beyond as we support and challenge our children to flourish.
Just as we nurture seeds and help them grow into strong trees, so we want to nurture our children, helping them to grow strong in body, mind and spirit.
Our vision and mission statement are rooted in the parable of the mustard seed in Matthew 13. Just as those seeds grew into a tree with branches strong enough to support the birds, so we want our children to grow into strong citizens of the future, able to support others in the world around them.
“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)
Our Christian Values
We are a Church of England School and we strive for all members of our school community to live, work and learn in accordance with our Christian Values:
We actively teach these values to our children, through our curriculum, our assemblies and our day-to-day interactions with the children, in the classrooms, the playground and beyond the school gates. We encourage our children always to reflect these values in their own behaviour and choices and we model this for them also.
We reward and celebrate children when we see our values in action. They underpin everything that we do in and out of school.
Like all schools, we also support the promotion of British values which aim to ensure our 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 British Values are:
