Our vision is
Belief in God, our children and their future.
BWI School aims to:
- be a Christian community where everyone can grow in Christian faith and develop an understanding and tolerance of others
- help each individual develop self-awareness, self-discipline and a positive attitude to life and work
- develop a sensitivity to the needs of others, valuing and respecting individuals and the whole community
- create a happy, organised and stimulating working environment so that children are enabled to fulfil their own potential and acquire skills and knowledge to prepare them for the wider world
- foster in children an excitement for God's world and an awareness of their place in it.
BWI School Ethos and Christian Character
- Distinctively Christian values are made explicit and are deeply embedded in the daily life of our school, having a significant impact on the daily lives and achievements of our children.
- Our school’s Christian character has a high profile, seen through our approach to issues of attendance and pupil exclusion for all groups of children.
- There is a highly developed interpretation of spirituality shared across our school community. Children have regular opportunities to engage in high quality experiences that develop a personal spirituality. They are passionate and confident to express their thoughts and views in considerable depth through a rich variety of styles and media.
- The Christian character and values of our school have a significant impact on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all children.
- The behaviour of our children is of a high standard and relationships between all members of the school community are consistently attributed to the Christian character and values of the school.
- Children are fully aware that Christianity is a multi-cultural world faith. They have a high degree of understanding and respect for diversity and difference both within the church and in other faith communities.
- Children are excited and challenged by religious education. It makes a significant contribution to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and plays a major role in determining the Christian character of the school.
