Excellence in Education, Equipped for Life
Jubilee Primary School opened its doors in September 2014 and is now a thriving mainstream primary school, judged as outstanding in all five
Our aim is that children at Jubilee Primary School will:
have a love for learning,
feel safe and valued,
feel empowered to take ownership of their learning and behaviour,
develop the utmost respect for self and others,
form positive memories,
have a strong sense of purpose,
be responsible citizens within their local, regional and national communities,
exceed national expectations.
Our Christian faith ethos
The Christian beliefs underpinning Jubilee Primary School produce principles that will be applied in all parts of the curriculum: development of a passion for life and learning; pupils taking ownership of their learning and behaviour; taking responsibility for their actions; working respectfully alongside pupils with differing beliefs and backgrounds; developing a strong sense of purpose; understanding citizenship and taking responsibility for their local and global communities; involvement of parents/carers in the education process; equipping in skills with which pupils can live their lives. All of these principles are inclusive and appropriate to pupils of varying beliefs and none.
Our faith ethos is drawn from our mainstream Christian beliefs and can be summed up by this phrase, also known as ‘the Golden Rule,
Love your neighbour as yourself. – Luke 10:27b, Common English Bible.
We celebrate diversity in the culture, beliefs, gifts and contributions of each pupil and see them as an asset to the life of our school. We provide opportunities for children to learn about different beliefs and how to develop acceptance and respect for others. Diversity and examples of differing worldviews are used to practically equip children how to interact with and positively contribute to their local and global community.
Overall our faith ethos only impacts our curriculum in terms of delivery. Key Christian values such as respect, integrity, compassion, honesty, service, forgiveness, manners, putting others first, giving your best and perseverance are of high priority; teachers not only encourage these values but model them – acknowledging that children are more likely to reflect the behaviour they see being modelled.
