Vision and Values
Who are we?
Bayton C.E Primary School is situated in the very rural outskirts of Worcestershire, surrounded by fields bursting with crop that we witness growing and thriving each year. In September, it is planted; the soil is worked down carefully and slowly, seeds are given the nurture that they need to germinate. Throughout the year, the crops begin to grow; they are maintained with the essential elements that will help them to flourish. Then finally, they are thriving and ready for harvest. Just like the cycle of arable land, here at Bayton, we aim to give our pupils the opportunity to GROW; just as God wants us to.
“Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God” Psalm 92: 12-14
Why are we here?
The Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13) inspires us to hear the word of God and respond positively after learning about what happens to each seed that falls or is planted.
“But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”13:23
The climax of the parable is the harvest. It is a bountiful, unexpected and wondrous harvest. Our mission at Bayton is to create an environment that is perfect for growth, where we can pursue academic excellence within our curriculum, alongside living by our three core values:
- NURTURING – Be Respectful
- GROWING – Be Responsible
- THRIVING – Be Wise
Just as a planted seed starts to grow, the word of God starts to deepen and grow within our pupils.
How shall we live?
Nurturing. Growing. Thriving.
Nurturing seeds of learning
Growing our minds to flourish
Thriving as unique individuals
