Vision & Values 


At The Haven School God is in all we do. Central to our vision is the Christian belief that God created all, and every life is precious to Him. In our nurturing environment, children are encouraged to grow into aspirational learners who contribute to their local and global community.


Our Christian Values enable us to live ‘Life in all its fullness.’   (John 10:10)

Compassion… developing individuals who are loving, kind and caring.

 “Let all that you do be done in love” 1 Corinthians 16:14 

Courage… overcoming challenges in our lives and learning.

“Be strong and courageous because God is with you.”  Deuteronomy 31:6

Respect… considering every unique individual and the world around us. “Love one another as I have loved you” John 13:34

Responsibility… learning to become independent, determined and     persevere.

“Whatever you do work at it with all your heart.” Colossians 3:23

Hope… having Faith in Jesus’ word to guide our lives.

“For I know the plans I have for you…plans to give you hope and a   future.” Jeremiah 29 v11

Justice… showing acceptance and understanding to ALL.

“For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.”

Curriculum Rational

We are very proud of our school, which has a friendly, caring Christian ethos; with a highly motivated team who are committed to helping all our pupils reach their full potential. A distinctive feature of the school is its friendly atmosphere that enables everyone, from pupils to staff, to feel valued, supported and nurtured, guided by our Community Code: Be Kind, Keep Safe, Aim High and Keep on Going.

Our purpose as an educational community is to provide a rich and stimulating Christian environment in which each child can learn, achieve and experience success. All children are encouraged to become independent, confident pupils who show respect for all members of the school community, through our Christian values of: respect, responsibility, compassion, courage, hope and justice. Today we live in a society where careers are rapidly changing and we need to provide skills to equip children for the future, in which they are able to adapt to an ever-changing society.  Our goal at The Haven is to provide an education which helps each pupil to become enthusiastic and engaged learners, enabling them to make informed choices and equipping them with the skills to become life-long learners.
