Our mission as a Church of England primary school, deeply rooted in a strong Christian tradition, is to develop happy, young people with enquiring minds, a spirit of curiosity, respect for themselves, others and the environment so that they will have the skills, resilience and adaptability to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
The bible verse that sets our mission statement in context comes from the words of Jesus: " I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10. It is this flourishing in the love and grace of God that will enable our children to be wise, hopeful, live well together with dignity and respect in God's world.
The Tugby Vision Star represents our school. Within the star are pupils, teachers, support staff, governors, parents, friends and community. Children are at the centre of the Star because they are at the heart of all we do at school.
The points of the star represent our six distinctive Christian values of love, hope, truth, trust, respect and forgiveness. When these values are seen in our daily lives within the community, the star will shine at its brightest and we know we are following the commandment from Jesus to ‘love your neighbour as yourself’ (Gospel of Mark chapter 12 verse 31).
The design and inspiration for the TugbyVision Star comes from the stained glass window in Tugby Church that depicts the Star of David. Y6 Prefects produced the star during an RE workshop.The Star of David can also be found in a synagogue and it reminds us that Christians share a common heritage with the Jewish faith. Both the Old Testament and the New Testament are part of the ‘Big Story’ that continues today…
The TugbyVision Star uses the colours of the rainbow because the Bible story of the flood and the rainbow reminds us that God keeps his promises to all people. We celebrate diversity as all people are special and equal in the sight of God.
