Vision and Values
Our Vision, Values and Aims
To achieve excellence in all that we do.
Our vision is to provide a transformative educational experience for every single one of our children. We value the importance of fostering love, respect and celebrating difference. We want all of our children to have the drive, courage and resilience to achieve personal and academic excellence. Children from St. Martin’s will stand out: they will be reflective, think deeply and will look to make a positive difference to God’s world in all that they do.
‘I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength’ – Philippians 4:13

Based upon Christian family values, in a multi-cultural society, we strive to develop and grow to our full potential as citizens in our local and world community.
As a Church School, the love of Jesus Christ is our foundation, which we hope will be evident to all who pass through our doors. It guides our values, decisions and forms a firm foundation for the rest of the our school.
Our Vision in Child Speak developed by the School Council
We like our school; it gives us new ways to learn in an exciting, happy and safe place.
We like to learn new things even if they are a bit different.
When we do things, we try to do them as best we can, working as part of a team.
We try hard to present our best work. We are helped to find out answers and guided in the right direction.
We respect the religions of other cultures and have friends in other countries.
We try to do our best everywhere we go, not just at school.
