Vision and Values


'Let your light shine.' (Matthew 5:16)

In Matthew 5:14-16, God’s word says, “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.”  


This verse is saying that our actions tell others what is inside of us.  We want the pupils at our school to shine their light for all to see, to be proud of who they are and to know that we have that light shining through our lives when our actions reflect the nature of Christ—His love, compassion, and forgiveness. His light shines through our attitudes, words, and deeds. 


Working with all staff and governors, we have chosen the following six values to foster in our pupils at Northleaze: 

Term 1 - Responsibility  Term 2 - Creativity 
Term 3 - Respect  Term 4 - Compassion 
Term 5 - Resilience   Term 6 - Friendship


We live in a rapidly changing world.  As our children progress through school, we want them to develop as compassionate individuals, full of friendship and creativityrespecting themselves and those around them, equipped with the resilience they need for all the challenges of life and with an understanding of the responsibility they each have for themselves and for the sustainability of the world in which they live.


  • Setting high standards and goals for all
  • Ensuring children take responsibility for their own learning
  • Using a variety of effective and inspiring teaching strategies and effective feedback
  • Providing excellent learning opportunities, embracing technology, both in school and in the wider environment
  • Having clear and consistent shared expectations of all
  • Working in close partnership and communicating effectively with parents, carers, the community and the Lighthouse Schools Partnership
  • Sharing and celebrating the successes of everyone in our school community
