Our school vision is inspired by John 10:10. The words of Jesus act as a guide for our Christian school vision where we aim for all at St. George’s to flourish together and enjoy life to the full.
Our Christian school vision is founded on three principles: Christian education, serving our local area and building each other up.
We believe children flourish when they are given the knowledge and skills to engender a love of learning. We believe children are a gift from God and support children to understand who I am called to be and release the gifts they have to offer.
Life in its fullness means developing as people. We enable children to live well in contemporary society, make good choices, live out their values, and grow in understanding.
‘Character produces hope’ (Romans 5:4)
Serving our local area
Our school is an inclusive and supportive community. We believe in the value and dignity of all people as created in the image of God. We serve the local area of Ladywood and North Edgbaston and its families.
Life in its fullness means serving the needs of our community and helping its children and those who care for them to thrive. We raise the spiritual, education and cultural aspirations of our community.
“The Lord is a God of justice” (Isaiah 30:18)
Building each other up
We believe all members of our school community have gifts to offer: children, staff, governors and parents/carers. We believe God calls all people to flourish and grow: forgiving our past mistakes, calling us to learn, and offering us new life. Every individual will feel valued and loved.
Life in its fullness means we work to discover and develop everyone’s gifts, so that they can be used to help our school pursue excellence. We support and encourage one another.
‘Encourage one another and build each other up’ (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
We provide an excellent education based on a Christian framework that empowers our children with the knowledge and wisdom to shape the future.
Our School Values
We express our principles each day by living out our school values.These are drawn from the Bible and from Christian teaching and can be practised by people of all beliefs.
Empathy means taking another person’s perspective and sharing in their joys and sorrows.
'Bear one another’s burdens, and that way fulfil the law of Christ' (Galatians 6:2)
Forgiveness means being able to ask God for forgiveness, letting go of wrongs we have suffered and asking others to do the same.
'Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone' (Colossians 3:13)
Honesty means speaking clearly, and telling other people if things go wrong or we are struggling in a compassionate manner.
'Whoever walks in integrity walks securely' (Proverbs 10:9)
Justice means doing the right thing, for one another and for society.
'Seek first God’s Kingdom and God’s justice' (Matthew 6:33)
Kindness means showing love and compassion to all and looking for ways we can care for others.
'Love your neighbour as yourself' (Mark 12:31)
