We also teach the children about the importance of British values, including democracy, the rule of law and individual liberty.
Godfrey Ermen’s School community is based on the model of a Christian family showing Christian love and provides grounding in the Christian faith for all its children. Christian values are built into the ethos and teaching of the school but we also promote empathy and the understanding needed in a multi-cultural society. Godfrey Ermen’s School attaches high priority to forging links between home, school and the church, thus promoting greater unity within the community. Our school is a partnership between parents, carers, educators and friends.
Godfrey Ermen is committed to actively promoting the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different values and beliefs; our pupils are encouraged to develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
At Godfrey Ermen, we inspire a love of learning and aim to develop lifelong learners with the skills to achieve a bright and happy future. We encourage independence, resilience and resourcefulness and through a rich and challenging curriculum which encourages enquiring minds and reflection.
Our school is proud to be part of the Children's University Trust.
The Children's University (CU) Trust is a charitable trust that provides 7 to 14 year olds with exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside normal school hours. We celebrate achievement and reward participation through our certificates. Raising children's aspirations is important to us and we aim to develop the understanding that learning can be "...a satellite navigation system to better places in life…".
