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:
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:
· rule of law
· individual liberty
· mutual respect
· tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
