Girnhill Vision

“Every child matters, Every moment counts”

Respect, Responsibility, Recognition and Resilience

 Empower futures

We have high expectations and aspirations for all children at Girnhill. We believe in bringing about change and making a difference in children’s lives in order to improve outcomes socially, emotionally, morally and spiritually. Every child deserves a champion to help them flourish, thrive and equip them with fundamental skills to succeed in life.

Engage passions and creativity

We motivate our children to be powerful, resilient, determined individuals in order to help them believe in themselves and be the best they can be. We prioritise instilling passion and a love of learning in order to develop lifelong learners who are able to make a positive contribution to society as responsible individuals.

Embrace individuality and diversity

We believe in equality and valuing children as individuals, appreciating and respecting our differences regardless of our background, culture or lived experiences. We encourage children to be courageous and challenge stereotypes by providing them with the knowledge and understanding to make their own informed decisions. We teach our children to demonstrate kindness by being thoughtful, empathetic citizens.

Establish positive partnerships

We truly believe in the power of relationships as a vehicle of mutual respect, honesty, trust and understanding where we work towards shared goals.
