Values & Ethos
Our Motto highlights the three key areas at the heart of Himbleton School and is reflected in everything we do.
Enabling inquisitive thinkers and inspired learners with kind hearts.
English, Maths and creativity provide the key focus at Himbleton School along with a strong focus on outdoor learning and an introduction to Science to prepare our children for their future.
IN THIS SECTION
We are guided by our key Christian values of Respect, Friendship, Perseverance, Truthfulness, Forgiveness and Courage. We live out these values in every aspect of our daily lives ensuring every child in our school is happy, cared for and nurtured. From the eldest to the youngest, our children learn to show respect for themselves, their surroundings and others. Adults are treated with dignity. It is our aim for all our children to approach their learning with joy and determination ensuring they are well prepared for their lifelong learning journey.
Himbleton is a happy church school with a real family feel to it. Our family ethos is one of respect and nurture allowing our children to grow and flourish in an ever-changing 21st Century society. Peer groups are close and friendships are made by children throughout the school. In close partnership with St Mary Magdelene’s Church our aim is to serve the local and wider community.
“Faith, Hope, Love….the greatest of these is Love”
Outdoors and our curriculum
Our beautiful natural environment is central to our curriculum and integral in our strive for high academic standards and achievement. Our on site Forest School ensures learning can take place outside in all weathers, keeping the children healthy, active and giving them context, vocabulary and experiences that simply wouldn’t be possible in more urban surroundings.
Through our values, we embed high expectations on ourselves and each other. Our caring and inclusive Christian environment aims to provide children with the best possible start in life so that they grow into confident, responsible, high achieving citizens of the future. Our small class sizes and integrated nursery ensure every child’s individuality, gifts and talents are recognised by both teachers and children alike. Each child is encouraged and valued at Himbleton for the contribution they make to our wonderful school.
