Aims & Ethos
As a Church School, Epping Upland seeks to be a community that reflects the love of God in its relationships, standards, teachings and way of life. We aim to mirror the value God puts on each individual. We expect to find love, encouragement and support when our community is at its best, and forgiveness and reconciliation when mistakes occur. We believe all pupils are entitled to equal regard, just as they are entitled to equal opportunity of learning.
We accept a responsibility to provide excellence within a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that seeks to develop the potential of every child and to which each is entitled. As such we monitor carefully what we are trying to achieve, and the extent to which each pupil is progressing. We seek to educate our children morally and socially, as well as academically and to ensure that each child feels that his or her contribution to the corporate life of the school is valued.
We aim to develop in our children a wide range of skills, knowledge, concepts and understanding, with due consideration to the development of “basic skills”, the tools of the trade. We encourage these positive and enquiring attitudes necessary for real learning. We try to produce independent learners with the confidence and high self-esteem to face the unknown challenges of the twenty first century. We also aim to ensure that the experience of education will be continuous and coherent.
We seek to provide an education worthy of the Church of England – education that attracts respect and support from other schools and the community, whom we welcome as contributors to our corporate life.
We welcome into our school community those from non-Christian faiths, or those who have none, and seek to safeguard their integrity whilst not compromising our own aims.
Our school aims to function as a clear reflection in the world, of the values, relationships and compassion in the Kingdom of God.
