School Vision and Values

Our Vision for Gilsland Church of England School

“Together we achieve!”

“We strive to provide an excellent standard of education for all pupils that enable each individual to recognise and achieve their full potential with an emphasis on tolerance and respect for others within the context of Christian beliefs and values.”

We will do this by:

  •  Delivering high quality teaching to promote effective independent learners with increased motivation
  • Providing a broad and balanced curriculum with the opportunity to access extra curricular activities
  • Developing happy, healthy and well- balanced individuals
  • Providing a rich learning environment
  • Ensuring equal opportunities to meet individual and special needs of all pupils
  • Enabling children to recognise their place in both the local community and the wider, multicultural society
  • Teaching Christian values and nurturing a caring ethos
  • Promoting self-discipline and understanding appropriate behaviour
  • Welcoming parents to work closely with the school to reinforce learning, and encourage them to play an active role in their child’s education
  • Targeting funds wisely and effectively to provide the best possible provision
  • Enabling continuing professional development and thereby improving leadership capabilities of all staff and governors

Our school values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
