Our School Vision
'Overthorpe is more than a school-
We are the heart of the community.
In our family, we nurture the courage,
And skills to fly higher than the flock,
Whilst always providing a nest,
To come home to.'
TRUST FRIENDSHIP ENDURANCE FORGIVENESS HOPE
At the start of the 2019/20 year we started the process of developing our new school vision. We met with different stakeholders to begin the process of finding the 'heart' of Overthorpe. To do this we needed a vision that reflects what we feel collectively is important for the children, staff, parents, governors and community of Overthorpe. Discussions, training, workshops took place with all stakeholders throughout the Autumn term to find out what Overthorpe meant to them.
It was very clear that all stakeholders came up with three common themes...
- We are more than a school.
- We support everyone to do their best
- We are always there to help.
We took the themes that were important to everyone involved in the school and translated it into the vision for the school above. We feel this reflects the heart and soul of Overthorpe, with our strong community links, desire to give everyone the opportunity the thrive and reach their potential, whilst always being there to support each other; underpinned by the strong Christian ethos we have in school.
