Strategic Aims for 2018-21 

In Summer 2018 the Governing Board revisited the mission statement and identified values and strategic aims which will lead all aspects of school improvement from 2018-2021. 

The values and strategic aims are as follows:

“Friendship, Compassion, Forgiveness, Wisdom, Thankfulness, Hope, rooted firmly in Agape, Love. “

Our Strategic Aims for 2018-2021

  • Friendship (John 15v12-14)

To develop friendships, welcoming supporting and loving each other, celebrating the gifts and talents of all.

  • Compassion( 1 Peter 3v8)

To inspire children to show compassion for others in school and for those in the local and global communities.

  • Forgiveness (Colossians 3v13)

To foster a community where all can learn to give and to receive forgiveness.

  •      Wisdom (Proverbs 22:6)

To teach our children to face challenges, developing empathy, resilience and self-confidence, whilst ensuring access to a deep and rich curriculum.

  • Thankfulness (Colossians 2v6-7)

To teach all members of our school community to be thankful for all that God has given us: the physical world, our human potential and our spiritual calling.

To encourage all to be thankful by caring for all God has given us and developing our gifts and talents to their full potential.

  •       Hope (Ephesians 1v18)

To develop an awareness that hope, based on God’s love for all through Christ, is where confidence and a positive self-image, peace of mind and purpose in life can be found.


At Blackburn The Redeemer (Voluntary Aided) Church of England Primary School, we aim to provide a safe, happy Christian environment with a high quality of care to all of our members.

The Christian faith and its teachings are the basis for every aspect of life at our school.

We nurture the spiritual development of all members of the school community and promote mutual respect and responsibility.

We provide effective teaching of the National Curriculum, encouraging the highest achievement for each child. We value the contribution each child makes to the life of the school and take account of individual’s needs.

This school has strong links with home and Parish Church, seeking to facilitate growth in knowledge and love of God and service to the community.
