Every child to thrive

Our Strategic plan

Temple Guiting Church of England School

Strategic Aims - July 2015


VISION: “Every child to thrive”


VISION DESCRIPTION: “By eleven, a Temple Guiting child has developed a love of learning, can clearly articulate their ideas and solves problems to the best of their ability. Their high self-esteem and respect for others comes from a continual sense of personal and team achievement. Our children learn to live life to the full.”
