Christian Mission, Vision and Values

Our Christian Mission Statement


In God's family learning, loving, growing to be our very best.


I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10



The Christian life is like a journey with Jesus into the heart of God. Our mission is simply to take the children by the hand and invite them to join us on the journey, working in close partnership with our neighbouring church and vicar, as together we discover our Christian spirituality. We promise also to help nurture those of other faiths and to give a creative space for those of no faith to explore our distinctive beliefs.




Our Values


Our Christian values underpin our school life and help us to experience and 'live life to the full'. 


We have the 4 core values of hope, community, dignity and wisdom in line with the Church of England's role as the established Church.

  • Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills
  • Educating for hope and aspiration.
  • Educating for community and living well together
  • Educating for dignity and respect


We explore eighteen values on a rolling 3-year program, with one value per half term. The value is the subject of assemblies and opportunities for the children to discuss and reflect on the value during class assemblies. We also send home notes to support discussion and activities linked to the value at home.
