“Learning to Love God and Love our Neighbour as Ourselves”
Luke 10: 25-37
As Federated Church of England Academies, we believe it is important to develop Christian values by which to live well together and which help to develop a moral and spiritual awareness.
Our core Christian value is Love. Across our Federation everyone is encouraged to love and respect themselves, others, God and his world. The Bible tells us that,
“God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”
(1 John 4:16).
The value of ‘Love’ underpins everything we do in our Federation. We believe that through a focus on Love, by working together as part of a strong and supportive family, we can all achieve more ;
“Love your neighbour as yourself.”

Christian Distinctiveness from St Bart’s Academy Trust
St Bart’s Academy Trust have a passion for releasing potential in all our children and staff through the encouragement and development of ambition, aspiration and excellence in all aspects of our work.
Our commitment is to place children at the centre of everything we do. Working in collaboration, we strive to provide the highest quality of educational experience and outcomes for our young people in an inclusive environment. Through the enjoyment of learning, we live life together in all its fullness through PEACE.
We believe this vision empowers children with the skills to make a positive impact on the future of the communities they serve.
For our Trust schools this means life in all its fullness is a life lived for God, serving others.
Our vision is in line with the Church of England’s mission that our education is deeply Christian, with Jesus’ promise of ‘life in all its fullness’ at its heart.
Our vision is for the common good of the whole community within each of our flourishing family of church schools through their own theologically rooted Christian vision they encompass the Trust vision.
