School Values and Vision
'Acorns to Mighty Oaks'
At Grayshott Primary School we are inspired daily by the nature that surrounds us, as illustrated by our acorn and oak leaf logo. The Bible uses the metaphors of people as trees, being ‘planted by the water’ and ‘bearing fruit for the healing of the nations'. Our vision is to nurture the whole child, rooting them in the Christian story and in a loving, supportive village and Church family. We aim to provide them with all they need to grow strong in moral character and concern for others and become life-long learners, in order to lead fruitful, fulfilling lives and make a positive difference in the world. “They will be called the oaks of righteousness.” Isaiah 61: v1-3
LOVE - God’s love for us, Love for God, Love of ourselves, love for our families, love for our community, love for our world. Jesus said: “Love your neighbour as yourself” Mark 12: v31
JOY - Joy in learning, joy in our families, joy in our friends and communities, joy in living life to the full. “ ... you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands” Isaiah 55: v12
RESPECT - Respect for all humankind, self-respect, respect for the teaching of Jesus, respect for the environment and the world in which we live. “Show respect to everyone...” Peter 2: v17
COURAGE - Courage in dealing with both physical and emotional challenges, courage in acquiring new skills, knowledge and understanding, courage in doing what is right, courage in working for justice in the world. “Be strong and very courageous.” Joshua 1:7
