Vision and Ethos
"At Lulworth and Winfrith CE Primary School we are committed to providing your child with an education that encompasses academic achievement, cultural experiences, sporting opportunities and spiritual nourishment."
Our school vision is underpinned by the ‘Parable of the Mustard Seed’. The teaching in this parable supports the values we uphold at our school.
We nurture our children to become resilient learners, supportive friends and responsible citizens. Just as in the story of the mustard seed – to grow from something small to something mighty.
We provide each child with opportunities and experiences that allow them to develop the belief and confidence that they can achieve anything.
Our children flourish in a safe and caring environment, just like the birds in the mustard tree’s branches. They learn to show kindness and respect to others and make valuable contributions as they move through their life
Our school vision and ethos and core Christian values of Belief, Fellowship and Harmony are at the heart of all that we do.
Alongside our core Christian values we work hard to develop our learning values of:
resilience, courage, aspiration, collaboration, trust, friendship, respect, kindness and forgiveness
The children listen to stories from the Bible and explore the values these can teach us about. They make links to their everyday lives and also with other stories they have enjoyed. They try hard to live out our school values in their daily life. We celebrate these achievements in our Celebration Collective Worship on a Friday.
Today we walked to the church to perform our Nativity. Our Year 5 and 6 children walked with the KS1 children chatting wit them and helping them when they needed it. It was great to see the older children showing care and kindness to the younger children on our glorious walk to the church.
We were excited to meet as a whole school at our Lulworth Site for a Curriculum Day with the focus being our school vision. We started our day with a Collective Worship led by Rev Bartlett and it was fantastic to all be together in such a joyful atmosphere.
The children joined in a selection of activities throughout the day and worked in mixed age groups. It was great to see the older and younger children working alongside and supporting each other.
Friday 17th November
We were all excited on Friday to get together as a whole school at Lulworth Site for our Curriculum Day. It was fantastic to see the children and staff working alongside each other and the older children supporting the younger children. We spent time reflecting on our school vision and thinking about our school value kindness linked to the work we had been doing for Anti-Bullying Week.
The children also enjoyed learning about the festivals of Eid, Rosh Hashanah and Diwali and joining in the themed activities.
It was a really great day!
Puzzle Day 25th January 2024
Today the children had a fantastic day working with the Puzzle Company. They worked in teams to problem solve and showed great skills of communication and collaboration. They persevered with each task and demonstrated resilience in completing each task.
Children spoke enthusiastically about the day:
'It helped us work as a team together'
'We were kind to each other and encouraged each other'
'We believed in each other that we could do it'
'...it made me better at not giving up and trying again'
