Our Ethos Statement

 

Farnley Tyas First School sits very much at the heart of our local community.  The School provides inclusive education in accordance with our historic Church of England foundation. Our Christian ethos is firmly embedded within our school values of: Trust, Compassion, Friendship, Peace and Forgiveness. The school preserves and develops its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils. Children are taught respect and consideration for others, as well how to look after themselves physically, mentally and spiritually. They are encouraged to become agents for change not only for themselves but also for others. Farnley Tyas First School fosters an awareness and tolerance of faiths and traditions. The expectation is that children will develop as confident, self-motivated and outward-looking individuals. The school values each of our children, and our culture is one of nurture, enrichment and achievement.
