'From Small Seeds to Mighty Trees'
To help all children understand the vision and how it applies to their lives we use the parable of the Mustard Seed from Matthew 13v32:
'It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants; it grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches.'
Children at Ridgeway Farm understand that through believing in themselves and others, through the learning each day, that they will grow from the smallest seeds, just like as the enter school in Reception to the mighty trees they are when they leave at the end of their time at Ridgeway Farm. They become mighty trees, trees that others can use for shelter, comfort and strength. Our vision is that our children become these mighty trees making a difference in the local communities and with secure roots to keep them strong and upright.
Our daily life at Ridgeway Farm CE Academy is underpinned by 12 Christian values. These are represented by a gold ‘values tree’ and they are taught and modelled by all members of the school community.
