Vision and Values

You've Come to the Right Place, Now Up We Go!

This is a caring and inclusive school with a Christian foundation. At The Wyche we believe learning is synonymous with joy and fulfilment. It is our mission to make every moment of the day worthwhile, educating the whole child with the whole teacher.

 

Through an academic, inclusive and therapeutic education we look to promote personal and social growth, of body, mind and spirit, which will lead to success and fulfilment, now and in later life.

 

In the words of the Prophet Isaiah "Those who hope in the Lord will not grow weary. They will soar on wings like eagles. (Isaiah 40:13)

To soar is to do more than just fly - it is feel your heart lifted, to spread your wings and take off towards a bright future, looking down on all possibilities, gaining perspective and seeing how far you can go.

 

We aim to broaden horizons and allow children to discover the spiritual riches of culture and community, through humility, courage and love.

This means we learn with our hands, our heads and our hearts, with practical, thought-provoking and emotionally satisfying experiences which are designed to outlast the classroom and remain with learners for life. Children are involved in planning and learning and are encouraged to give feedback.

"Pupils flourish socially, academically and emotionally in this small and caring school" (Ofsted 2020)

We also believe we are equals and are a community where adults and children are encouraged to treat each other with mutual respect, becoming directly involved in the planning of their learning.

Our acts of collective worship promote reflection and prayer on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, the witness and examples of Christians past and present and promote mental and spiritual wellbeing, as well as a charitable and moral outlook.

Our recent Ofsted Inspection said the Wyche puts "the personal and social development of pupils at the heart of learning".
