Our Vision and Values
We are a Church of England primary school located in the village of Wick situated between Bristol and Bath. We have a talented staff who provide a fantastic education for our children in accordance with our Christian vision, “Wherever the river flows, life will flourish” – Ezekiel 47:9.
This is to represent Golden valley and the river which nourishes everything allowing life to flourish and thrive. Golden valley is a key component in the education we offer our children and an important part of the local area. A unique part of Wick.
We believe this represents how we nurture our children spiritually, academically, emotionally and socially to be the best they can be. To help them navigate life’s journey just as the river has its own journey so do our children.
We believe in creating a community where every child can thrive - Aspiring and achieving together.
We aim to prepare our pupils, ensuring they are equipped with the full range of skills that allows them to be lifelong learners ready for the next steps in their education and as well as preparing them for the wider world. We will help our children to be curious, ask probing questions and be brave in finding solutions. They will engage with the familiar and be engaged by the unusual; be immersed in language and communicate in multiple languages; know how to practise, be resilient and challenged; to be proud of their local environment and think on a global scale; work individually and add their voices to the many; to accept help, give charitably and embrace altruism; to love difference, be different and stand up for the rights of others just because it is the right thing to do. We want them to be relentlessly creative, critically curious and to live ambitiously.
