At Culgaith C of E School we believe that we are all uniquely created individual parts of one body.
Our school is a place where we value the character of every child and strive for all to be ambitious for themselves and their world.
Our school vision encompasses our ambitions as a school. We strive to celebrate the unique qualities of all of our students and promote ambition for all. Our vision is inspired by Psalm 139:14: “You are fearfully and wonderfully made” and by 1 Corinthians 12:12 – “Many parts but one body.”
The distinctive nature of our vision highlights the value we give to our school culture and diversity and affirms our belief that by allowing each pupil to flourish, we can grow together and prepare our pupils as active global citizens.
Our distinctly Christian ethos enables us to weave our Christian values into the fabric of the school, providing ambitious learning opportunities, promoting achievement in every area and nurturing social, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Through our core Christian values we aim to provide our pupils with the key skills to lead successful, fulfilled lives.
Friendship - At Culgaith C of E School we strive to be a good friend. We see friendship as an integral part of a loving society and the community of the school. “If one falls down, a friend can lift him up” (Ecclesiastes 4:10).
Forgiveness – Forgiveness is a fundamental value to the character and nature of our school. We believe “Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive others” (Colossians 3.13).
Perseverance – At Culgaith CE School pupils are taught that whilst sometimes things can be difficult and painful, it is important not to give up in the face of adversity. We create resilient learners who are keen to overcome barriers and keep faith in all that they do. “For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations” (Psalm 100:5).
Respect – At Culgaith CE School we ‘value others as we would like to be valued’. All countries that belong to the United Nations have agreed to live by ‘The Golden Rule’ in the way they treat other countries and their citizens. At Culgaith this permeates the vision of our school. ‘Do unto others as you would have them do to you’ (Matthew 7.12).
Courage – “Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1.9). We encourage our pupils to do the right thing which is not always the easy thing; making a change and having an impact on society. Our pupils demonstrate courage in their convictions, bravery and strive to be courageous advocates on a global scale.
Generosity – At Culgaith C of E School we encourage our pupils to ‘love others as we love ourselves’ (Mark 12.31). A community flourishes when each part of the community demonstrates generosity of spirit and we encourage this in all of our children.
Compassion – Compassion at Culgaith C of E is all about putting yourself in someone else’s shoes, trying to understand how they are feeling and being pro-active in wanting to help. Colossians 3.12 teaches us ‘Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience’.
Culgaith CE Primary School, where all children flourish.
