Vision, ethos and aims
Morda will be an inclusive community where the compassion and determination of staff, parents and governors enables children to become valuable members of society who live out the school's Christian values. The children will achieve their full potential in English and Maths and, as part of a broad and balanced curriculum, the school will ensure children achieve well in Science, Technology and the Aesthetic Arts, so ensuring they can choose between many future paths. They will be led by the example and compassion of a dedicated team of teaching and support staff. Children will acquire a range of skills and knowledge which prepares them to lead healthy, fulfilled and productive lives. Their experience at Morda will open doors of hope and windows of opportunity.
This Vision is underpinned by our four principal and guiding ethos platforms, which are:-
* Values and Spirituality * Professional
* Life Readiness * Learning Environment
In the classroom the Vision will be reinforced with the children using the "REACH" mnemonic (Respect, Engage, Achieve, Collaborate, Hope). These form a significant part of values and behaviour patterns which are currently taught at Morda, and which will continue to play an important part in ensuring the Morda community is a well mannered, tolerant, understanding and inclusive place in which our young people can learn in safety.
Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.
The school 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.
