We work together to create a school where we all are:
Rooted in the community.
Branching into the future.
Walking together in the light of the Lord.
"Your word is like a lamp for my feet and light for my way."
Flockton School sits in the very heart of the community. We work together as a team to promote high standards of behaviour within the contexts of our Christian Values of Hope, Compassion, Community, Joy, Stickability and Forgiveness, and through the teachings of Jesus.
At our school we pride ourselves on knowing our pupils and families well, and overtime develop strong-lasting family relationships. We celebrate our place in the community and strive to improve and create the best learning environment for our pupils. We create happy, resilient, kind and well-balanced life-long learners, who strive to achieve their potential. We educate our pupils in the rich mining history that embellishes our small historical village. Our pupils learn about those that came before us, and through our community value we aim to learn to care for our village for those who will come after. Our vision is that our pupils become change makers for the community and develop a passion to make a difference. Our aim is to take full advantage of the abundance of rich resources that exist on our door step and rejoice in all it has to offer.
Our desire is that all of our pupils leave Flockton School with a strong sense of self. Through Collective Worship we explore how our Christian values bring peace and wonder to our lives and, how these values are key to a harmonious school and good mental health for pupils and staff. We aim to provide opportunities for self-reflection and give pupils the opportunity to understand the world around them. Through a strong management team we thrive to improve the quality of our Collective Worship and opportunities to explore the fundamental underpinning of our foundations as a Church School.
The school has a proud tradition of high academic standards in core subjects and excel in a wide range of extracurricular activities such as Performing Arts and Music. We aim to provide outstanding opportunities for high quality engagement in the outdoors and environmental geography and sciences, D&T, nature and art. We believe the outdoor environment heavily impacts on pupils mental health, well-being, communication skills, and helps our pupils and staff to get along together. We believe that we have a key role in society in combating discrimination and promoting fairness, justice and equality through our teaching and in the role models we offer. Our desire is to see every child and member of staff, regardless of gender, race or ability, achieve the very best that they can in all aspects of school life and find a sense of belonging in our school.
