'Plant, Nurture, Flourish, Serve'

'It's like a mustard seed that man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree and the birds in the sky nested in its branches'.  Luke 13:19

The school garden is a very special and unique part of our school and is enjoyed for its beauty as well as a place to play and learn.  On their journey through the school the children are taught gardening jobs and are responsible for areas of the garden.  There are many opportunities for them to plant seeds, nurture plants and watch them flourish.  During our work on the vision the children are helped to explore how 'plant, nurture, flourish, serve' is a metaphor that can be applied to many aspects of their life.  We plant a wide range of seeds in our children in the form of knowledge, skills and new experiences; we nurture their development (providing extra support where needed) to enable all children to flourish. Children are given opportunities to serve by supporting and helping others, sharing work and expertise and by having responsibilities such as looking after a reception buddy, being a young leader or serving on a school committee such as eco-schools.

History

Box School dates back to 1707 when Dame Rachel Speke left a bequest to the parish for ‘teaching poor children to read and instructing them in the knowledge and practice of the Christian religion, as professed and taught in the Church of England’.

We have been educating children in Box for over 300 years.
