In a safe and caring Christian setting, through inspirational teaching, challenge, awe and wonder, this school's goal is to enable all children to become confident life-long learners to achieve their full potential.
As a school community we have chosen five Christian values that we feel are at the heart of our school and our learning, and are deeply rooted in the Christian narrative. They are:
At Rauceby Church of England Primary School we recognise, promote and teach British Values through positive modelling and through our many enrichment activities, woven into our daily learning. We value and celebrate difference within our school community and beyond, celebrating what it means to be part of modern Britain.
In 2014, the DfE produced guidance in which Lord Nash said:
The Rule of Law
At Rauceby we have clear expectations for the children, who are taught why laws are in place and how they affect the lives of all in our community. Our House Captains and School Ambassadors, amongst others, are there to model expectations and to encourage children to make the right choices. We have visits from the local police to develop links with the local community.
All members of the Rauceby School community have the opportunity to be heard. Parents are invited to join working parties throughout the year; children from each class are elected to represent the pupil voice in the School Council, which meets regularly under the guidance of staff. The staff, both teaching and support, have a voice on the Governing Body.
Within our Rule of Law, the community at Rauceby is encouraged to make choices and to follow their beliefs, whilst respecting the wishes of others.
Tolerance of Others’ Beliefs
An important part of the Rauceby Team working together successfully is ensuring that all people’s thoughts, beliefs and ideas are respected, not just tolerated. Children learn that others will have differing views to their own but that all are valuable.
Mutual Respect for All
This, of all the values, underpins all that the community at Rauceby believes in. All memebers of the school community are expected to treat others with the respect they would like shown to them.
‘In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the prophets.’ [Matthew 7:12}
