Our Vision

Our School Vision

St George’s Hanover Square Church of England Primary School offers a distinctly Christian education in an inclusive environment, welcoming children and staff of all faiths and none.

‘Church of England schools offer a community where everyone is a person known and loved by God, supported to know their intrinsic value.' The Most Reverend Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury

The distinctive nature of our approach to education is grounded in a clear theology firmly rooted in a Christian narrative and can be found in our explicit Christian values, our collective worship, our Christian ethos and in our Religious Education.

We aim to provide ambitious learning opportunities, promoting achievement in every area and nurturing social, emotional and spiritual well-being.

It is essential that we equip our children with the knowledge and cultural capital that they need to succeed in life. Cultural capital is the essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said and helping them to engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.

Character and resilience are the qualities, the inner resources, that we call on to help us through the frustrations and setbacks that are part and parcel of life. We must instil these qualities in our children and make sure they are ready to make their way in the world as robust and confident individuals.

As our children gain confidence, knowledge and skills we hope that they will go on to become compassionate, well balanced young people. They will take their place in society as active citizens, economically independent, exemplifying the British Values of equality, tolerance, democracy, individual liberty and rule of law.

As a Church school we believe every child is made in the image of God, and therefore we want the best for them. We value our school community as a place where love can flourish.

 

 

 

Our School Motto

Let your light shine in the world as Jesus did, with compassion, thankfulness and hope.

Our school motto is based upon the biblical link Matthew 5: 14-16

"You are the light of the world…let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

 

This is demonstrated across our school by:

  • Respect which helps us value.
  • Encouragement which helps us learn.
  • Perseverance which helps us achieve.
  • Care which helps us flourish and serve others.
  • Aspiration which helps us shine. 
  • Reverence so that we embrace the wonder of God's creation.​
