School Values

Our school values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


Last term's Christian 'Values for Life' was Compassion. This half term is Forgiveness. 



In May 2018 we changed our school vision statement to:

Learn, Believe and Achieve

Hand in hand with God and each other


Here is an explanation of our vision.


As a school we wanted to encompass more than just learning and a greater sense of belief and achievement.


‘Learn’ is at the forefront of our minds in school. Through education we learn and develop. We also learn about ourselves and others around us both socially, emotionally and spiritually.

‘Believe’ encourages children to develop self-belief in their own achievements both personally and academically. It also affirms our Christian belief in God which is at the heart of our school.

‘Achieve’ reflects the importance of achieving academically but also personally, continuously aiming high to achieve our dreams.


We also wanted to include how important community, God and each other are in order for children to reach their full potential. Therefore we included the phrase:

Hand in hand with God and each other



Our school is a caring Christian community which values every individual member. Our aim is for each child to feel secure and happy at school whilst developing a love of learning. Each child is different and we encourage him or her to take pride in individual achievements and together to strive for excellence.
In order to achieve these aims, we believe it is essential for our school to work closely with parents, carers and the community to enable children to become life long learners and responsible members of society. Our school is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School and we value its Christian ethos.
