Aims and Vision of Kirkby and Great Broughton Church of England Primary School

Kirkby and Great Broughton Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School is part of the Church of England and maintained by North Yorkshire County Council.

We work in close harmony with St Augustine’s Parish Church, Kirkby-in-Cleveland and York Diocese.

Our Vision and Aims focus on

 the Bible Verse:  

“You will shine among them like stars lighting up the sky.”  
(Philippians 2:15-16)  

Our Christian vision is for every member of our school community to shine:  

Shine within themselves  
Shine for our community  
Shine out to the world 
Together, we light the way for others.  

This vision represents how we want all of our school community to be the best they can be, to make a positive difference in the world and to do this alongside others.  

We are very proud of our distinctiveness as a church school and Christian values and spirituality run through everything we do. We create a safe and secure Christian environment where all can achieve their full potential and feel a sense of pride in their own achievements and the achievements of others.  

Our Core Christian Values

Love, Friendship, Forgiveness

We love our neighbours; showing friendship towards all.

We show dignity and respect towards the beliefs of others and the environment.

We value everyone as unique individuals and celebrate the diverse nature of our community and the wider world.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

“Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive others.”

Colossians 3:13
