Values and Vision

IMG_0674 Our Ethos Statement:

“Living and learning with God, celebrating life at its fullest”

Our mission as a Church of England primary school, deeply rooted in a strong Christian tradition, is to develop happy, young people with enquiring minds, a spirit of curiosity, respect for themselves, others and the environment so that they will have the skills, resilience and adaptability to thrive in a rapidly changing world.

The bible verse that sets our ethos statement in context comes from the words of Jesus: ” I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10.

Children are at the heart of everything that we do. Our  School works in partnership with parents,  our local church and the wider Diocese to nurture confident and responsible children who respect other faiths and adopt positive roles in the community. Our Christian values are promoted in all aspects of school life and we encourage all members of our community to promote an ethos where care and respect is shown to everyone.

We are inclusive and welcoming to those of all backgrounds and faiths; all individuals are respected, supported and nurtured.

We believe that our school provides a stimulating learning environment, encourages excellence, actively promotes British values and enables children to achieve their full potential.


Our  community is built upon core Christian Values.

These are honesty, friendshipendurance, forgiveness, compassion and thankfulness.

The children have explained how we put our values into action underneath each value.


We are fair and listen to each other’s ideas and opinions.


We are kind and encourage one another and help our friends.


We don’t give up when things look hard or tough.


We look after each other and share and think about how others feel.


We try not to lie and be honest with our friends and teachers


We give people a chance to start again.

We celebrate a different value in our assemblies each week.
