At Iron Acton, we are striving to ‘have the courage to care’. Every member of the school family takes active care of themselves, each other, our learning, our community and the environment, even when it is hard.
As a church school with close links to St James’ Church in the village, it is important that our vision is rooted in biblical teaching. We believe the story of ‘The Good Samaritan’ (Luke 10: 25-37) demonstrates our vision well.
Our values help us to live out our vision. They are:
Listening – supported by the story of ‘Samuel listens to God’ (1 Samuel 3)
Nurturing – supported by the story of ‘Moses as a child’ (Exodus 2: 1-10)
Welcoming – supported by the story of ‘The big party’ (Luke 14: 7-24)
Celebrating – supported by the story of ‘The prodigal son’ (Luke 15: 11-32)
