Our Vision and Values
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
When Joshua became leader of the Israelites and took over from Moses; he had big shoes to fill. Joshua became a leader with huge challenges to overcome. God gave Joshua instruction and advice which led him to success. Our community at Colnbrook School believes in the advice that was given to Joshua and has adopted it as our own vision to develop belief and achievement for ourselves and our community.
Our Vision Statement
At Colnbrook we want to grow young people who believe in themselves so they are confident and courageous and not discouraged from their path. They are resilient when faced with challenge. We want our pupils to believe in each other and to feel supported; never alone on their journey.
Our pupils will have the strength of character to set themselves aspirational goals in learning and life. They will achieve their best and create their own inspirational story and memories.
Our Christian Values
These values are at the heart of everything we do here at Colnbrook Church of England Primary School. They reflect the qualities that staff and governors want the children to develop and display in all that they do.
- Having aspiration
- Demonstrating resilience
- Showing respect
- Taking responsibility
- Caring for the community
- Showing compassion
The children have written their own definitions for each of these values:
