School Vision


Our School Vision

Our vision is that all children from Arnside National School care for and respect others, embracing differences in culture or religion. Our school strives to be at the centre of the local community, with positive and effective links to the wider and global communities.  

As a Church of England school, we embrace the teachings of St Paul, from Galatians 5:22-23:

" But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law."

These Fruits of the Spirit provide the basis for our Star Qualities, which we all strive for and work towards in our Christian lives. 

Our school motto, ‘Aspire, Believe, Achieve’, reflects our school vision. We aim to ensure the children in our school are inspired to aspire through imaginative teaching and high-quality learning experiences. Our school environment promotes achievement in a broad and balanced curriculum, which prepares the children for the challenges, opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.  

Through our school values, we are committed to providing a positive, safe and stimulating environment in which all children can learn and achieve. We teach our children to be independent and confident and to take responsibility for their life-long learning and development; we teach them to believe in themselves. 

Being situated in such a magnificent area, we are committed to giving our children opportunities and skills to appreciate and contribute to the conservation of the outdoors, through environmental education and learning outside the classroom.
