Latest News: Chedworth Roman Villa

Thursday 26 November, 2015

Sycamore and Maple classes recently went on a trip to Chedworth Roman Villa in Gloucestershire. During our visit, we were allowed to handle some real Roman artefacts and we had to work out what they were and what they might have been used for. As well as this, we were taken on a tour of the whole villa and got to see the water shrine, the baths and the dining room with a huge mosaic on display! We also got to dress up as Roman slaves and we ground up herbs and spices to create a real Roman medicine bag. It was a really exciting day and it certainly brought our topic work to life!

Mission Statement:

The relationship between the school, parents, pupils, governors and the community is vitally important. In September 2010 all these groups joined together to develop the mission statement for the school as it moved on into its next phase – to become outstanding. The mission statement encapsulates all these ideas and ambitions for the school.

As a church school our ethos reflects Christian moral values which build positive partnerships with families, local and global communities.

We aim to:

  • Provide an outstanding education for all pupils
  • Develop everybody’s unique personality, abilities and talents through creative learning experiences
  • Encourage confidence, independence and self-belief so that all individuals can reach their maximum potential
  • Embed within the school a culture of respect and care for each other and themselves
  • Instil a lifelong love of learning with the ability and desire to make God’s world a better place
