Living Our Vision
We provide many specific opportunities for the children to develop their their curiosity. To begin our academic year, we had a curiosity week, which involved Key Stage 1 and 2 going to Winchester Science Centre and EYFS to Beale Park. Curiosity means:
Finding out more.
Wanting to do something again and again because you are so interested and curious.
Wanting to learn more.
Wanting to know what you don’t know.
At Clifton Hampden CE Primary school:
- Having courage means that we are brave as we meet new experiences and difficult situations.
- Courage may mean being firm and standing up for our morals.
- When we are being courageous, we may have feelings of fear, anxiety or apprehension.
One of the many opportunities and highlights of the year the children experience to develop their courage is the process of Take Over Day. The children in Badgers class, prepare and take part in a formal interview, then plan and deliver a lesson as the member of staff they have selected to be for the day.
As a whole school, we took part in a Courageous Week, in which we learnt about a very courageous lady. Queen Elizabeth II
We are an extremely compassionate school community, that are always looking for ways to serve each other and the community we live in. A key strength of Clifton Hampden CE school, is the way in which the children look after each other throughout the school.
Throughout the year, children will have opportunities to think about compassion through different lenses:
- Noticing a need
- Being a good neighbour
- Putting on the right attitude
- Having courage to care
- Coming to the rescue
We have raised funds to support CHILDREN IN NEED and the UKRAINIAN APPEAL as our chosen charities.
We take an active role in supporting the community in which we are a part of. Despite Covid 19, we have found ways to continue to serve, through hosting and participating in events. This includes a Harvest Tea Party, for the older members in Clifton Hampden and Burcot. In September we asked to joined our local church - St Michael's and All Angels church flower rota.
The children, participated in Radio Oxford's Children In Need launch, which was our chosen school charity by the School Council.
