Our School Vision
At Great Missenden, we encourage children to use the educational keys gifted to them to open the 'door' and unlock their full potential. We will look through 'windows' to gaze into the real world and reflect upon the big questions of life by looking in the 'mirror.'
Windows: These are opportunities to look out on the world to gaze in wonder. These are the WOW and OW moments. These are the things that inspire us and motivate us to be better people.
Encounter: The learning about Life
Mirrors: These are opportunities for children to reflect, to look inward and to consider some of the big questions of life. These provide opportunities to explore their own insights and those of others.
Reflection: The learning from.
Doors: These are the opportunities for children to respond, to creatively express their thoughts and convictions. These are the opportunities for children to move on and reflect.
Transformation: The learning to live by putting into action what they believe.
Our Values are:
“Truth, Love, Faith, Courage, Respect, Community”
Our School Motto is:
“Believe and Achieve”
We want children to:
Know that they belong
Appreciate and value the opinions of others
Have a sense of awe and wonder
Appreciate the world around them, and take care of it
Be curious, ask questions
Take pride in their own achievements and the achievements of others
Take control of their own learning
Know that it is alright to make a mistake and then move on
Know that life is precious and that today is very special and it will not happen again
Know that there are many ways to be clever, and that everyone is good at something
Our school is a place where learning is rewarding, absorbing and fun.
Learning is for all, adults and children, and learning continues throughout life.
The adults who work here enjoy being here.
Every child is able to go out of the school gates at the end of the day and say,
“That was the best day ever!”
