Our Christian vision is to follow Jesus’ teaching, helping us to strive for excellence in all that we do and flourish as unique individuals so that all can ‘Shine Bright’. This is underpinned by Jesus teaching in Matthew’s Gospel that everyone should ‘Let your light shine…’

The Cragside family is special and we aim for all our members to be independent, enthusiastic learners and responsible citizens, living up to their true potential, being all that they can be  by looking in, at themselves, looking out, towards others and looking up towards God and/or as part of their own spiritual journey. Throughout their time in school everyone is encouraged to have confidence in their own abilities so that they have the opportunity to achieve their potential and feel empowered to use their voice to enable themselves and others to flourish and shine. We promote mutual respect, tolerance, and understanding and encourage respect, responsibility and individuality. Positive and caring relationships are the thread which weaves through all of our school community-relationships where all are valued and all value each other. All children, staff and families in school are celebrated as unique individuals who are valued, loved, celebrated and supported. We strive to enable all to SHINE BRIGHT and flourish at Cragside.

Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Looking In Looking Out and Looking Up

At Cragside we want everyone to explore their own spiritual and personal development through encounters with themselves, others and God and/or something bigger than themselves.  We talk about Looking In, Looking Out and Looking Up.

Looking In

We encourage all members of our Cragside family to take time to get to know themselves, who they are and what they think. We encourage self-reflection and self-care and for every member of our community to love and value themselves as a unique child of God. We encourage everyone to explore their gifts and talents and celebrate themselves.

Looking Out

We encourage all members of our school to use their gifts and talents to look out towards others. We want all members of our school community to use their gifts and voice to show love and care for others both locally and globally. Through encounters with others we encourage children and adults in school to be advocates for change and to develop a passion for fighting social injustice.

Looking Up

We are all spiritual beings on our own spiritual journey. We encourage members of our team to explore and consider something greater than themselves. We provide opportunity for prayer, reflection and encourage children and adults in school to explore life’s big questions.

Our School Values

Our school values of kindness, love, perseverance, joy, forgiveness and respect are informed by our vision and give children and adults in school ways of supporting ourselves and others to SHINE BRIGHT.
