BISHOP RAMSEY IN 50 WORDS
A Christian Learning Community, inspired by hope to the fullness of life in Christ in our Learning, Loving & Living
Our intention is that every learner be empowered, every lesson excellent, every school day a rich experience, every relationship a positive encounter and together a community looking outwards and beyond.
Bishop Ramsey School is a Christian Learning Community. We recognise that every individual is created in the image of God. We seek to nurture each member of our community to develop his or her skills and abilities in a positive and ordered learning environment, so that students mature into responsible and caring adults, and that all members of the school community recognise the value of every individual in God's eyes.
As a Church of England School we wish students to grow in the Christian faith. While being firmly committed to this, we encourage an understanding of and a respect for other faiths.
The principle of Christian stewardship underpins our approach to the use of the school's resources. Our approach to our relationships is based on the Christian view of God's love for each of his human children and of Jesus' command to forgive and love our fellows. We base our approach to achievement and the provision of opportunities for development on Jesus' statement that he came of offer 'life in all its fullness' (John 10.10).
As a member of Veritas Educational Trust we share the Trust’s organisational aims to ensure that, at Bishop Ramsey:
• Every learner is an empowered learner
• Every lesson is an excellent lesson
• Every day at school is a rich experience
• Every relationship is a positive encounter
• We are a school community that looks outwards and beyond.
How we achieve these Aims
Our curriculum is based on John 10.10. ‘I have come that they may have life and have it in all its fullness’. For us, this means that we ensure that all the learning activities we offer our students contribute to one or more of the three pillars of:
Learning so that every learner is an empowered learner and every lesson is an excellent lesson
Loving so that every day at school is a rich experience and every relationship is a positive encounter
Living so that students learn to look outwards to the world and beyond to God
The table below shows what this means and how we achieve it.
Our School Development Plan and subject curriculum maps ensure that everything we do contributes to the growth in Learning, Loving and Living of our students.
Who do we want our Students to Become?
It is important that we are clear about who we want our students to become as a result of our work with them over 5 or 7 years. As a result of being members of our Christian Learning Community and benefiting from the opportunities that this involves, we want all our students to grow in the following character virtues.
- Advocates for Justice
- People of Integrity
