Inspiring Everyone to Shine
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Matthew chapter 5 verse 14 – 16
At Highnam, through our vision ‘Inspiring Everyone to Shine,’ we strive to enable each child to develop and flourish and to let their light shine before others. Our Christian values are embedded through everything that we do and provide a strong foundation which inspires and motivates our whole school community.
Together, we recognise, in the eyes of God, that we are all special and have unique talents which we support and nurture so that each of us has the opportunity to become the very best person that God intended us to be. All members of our school community are encouraged to have faith in themselves and in others as well as to understand how faith in God can impact our lives. We want our children to feel inspired to do well but to also do good and for the light of their lives to shine and make a difference in their classrooms, throughout the school, at home and into their community.
As part of the Primary QuEST multi academy trust, our school vision links well with the trust vision:
Together in LIFE, Flourishing through LIFE, Faith for LIFE
