We aim to provide educational excellence inspired by the world around us. To develop curious, responsible and confident learners within a caring community, in partnership with our families, upholding our Christian values.
Small steps to big dreams
Curiously, tentatively, step by step we grow, nourished and nurtured by God’s love, our homes, our school and our community, our steps grow stronger, more confident, more ambitious.
Steps that take us closer to our hopes, our aspirations. At Clearwater we aim to inspire and support every child in their journey to their dreams – every step of the way.
Mark 4 30-32
‘The Mustard Seed’
The Story of our Vision
As a new school we thought of ourselves from tiny beings growing into fully formed adults. We thought of our school growing into a bigger one. We each made a mustard seed and then thought about “Our small steps to big dreams!” Everyone added a leaf to our mustard tree and we have written something we hope to “grow in ourselves.” We think of our Christian Values as the birds nesting in the trees. The pupils and adults are encouraged, through worship focused on our Christian values, to grow spiritually into the best that they can be and to have aspirations for themselves and the world.
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
The kingdom of God is like a mustard seed, the tiniest seed you can sow. But after that seed is planted, it grows into the largest plant in the garden, a plant so big that birds can build their nests in the shade of its branches’
