It is a primary aim of our school that every member of the school community feels values and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring, Christian community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. These Christian values are: love, truthfulness, faith, courage, generosity, forgiveness, thankfulness, peace, stewardship, grace, fellowship, equality, service and compassion.
Our Vision Statement
Our school motto is, "Let your light shine!"
We believe that this motto, which is a quote from the Bible (Matthew 5:16), perfectly sums up our ethos at Lower Heath; we celebrate the individual talents, skills and interests of every pupil, encourage them to do their best at all times and share their achievements with others, and as a Church of England school, show pupils through our values how Christians believe that Jesus’ light can shine through our attitudes, actions and words.
With Jesus' help, we aim to:
Lower Heath in the Local Community
At Lower Heath, we are very proud of our links with the local community. The children take part in many community events throughout the year. Whether maypole dancing at Fauls Summer fête, playing handbells at community concerts, making banners for the Holy Immanuel Church flower festival or performing drama at Pentecost events, our children are always delighted to be involved in community events.
We enjoy very close links with Holy Immanuel Church, Fauls; members of the congregation and the Parochial Church Council take on many voluntary roles within school, and at school events. A highlight of the school year is the harvest tea provided by the PCC for the children after the harvest service!
At Christmas, our children host a Christmas party for local senior citizens. They perform songs, play instruments, serve tea, coffee and tasty treats that they have cooked. This is a very popular event, so please feel free to come along and join us - keep an eye on our calendar on this website for the date this year!
Each year, we host an Open Day where anyone from the local community can come and have a look around the school. There is always lots to do, including pre-school play activities, maypole dancing, handbell ringing, displays of children's artwork, tours of the school, refreshments and much, much more. Again, please keep an eye on the calendar for this year's date.
The school hosts a range of social events which are open to the local community. These include bingo evenings, band nights, pantomimes and talent shows, amongst others. We also extend an invitation to the local community to join us for Christmas, Easter and harvest services at Holy Immanuel Church, Fauls. Details of upcoming events are included on the calendar on this website.
We are always delighted to welcome visitors from the local community into school - previous visitors have enjoyed telling children about their experiences in the Second World War or the opening ceremony of the London Olympics, helping children with work in class, running clubs after school for the children, joining in with World Book day - the list is endless! Members of the local community also help us by making props, costumes, designing lighting and operating sound equipment for school productions. If you would like to help us in school in these, or any other way, please get in touch with us - we'd be delighted to hear from you!
