Vision and Values

Our Vision for children, families and staff is: love, serve, support and succeed.

This vision is rooted in the new commandment given by Jesus to his disciples

to 'love one another, as I have loved you’ (John 13:34).


Following Jesus’ example, love is at the very heart of everything we do. All of our Christian Values stem from the central value of love. Our shared loving service of one another provides support for all to reach their full potential.


We have defined this in child friendly language: 

We love by caring for the world and its people.

We serve by putting others before ourselves.

We support by growing and learning together.

We succeed by becoming who God intends us to be.


Our intent is:

  • to provide the highest quality education for all, ensuring every child has a chance to shine
  • to cultivate a Christian environment that is inclusive, safe, stimulating and caring
  • to foster inspired, resilient and confident learners
  • to enable children to be critical thinkers who communicate effectively
  • to nurture respectful citizens who are valued members of their community and are committed to fairness, equality and social justice
  • to have fun together!

Christian Values

As a Christian school we have, at the heart of everything we do, an agreed set of Christian Values which help us to live out our vision to ‘love, serve, support and succeed’ by following in the footsteps of Christ and following his new commandment to ‘love one another, as I have loved you’ (John 13:34). These values set the theme for our collective and class worship and are referred to in the everyday life of our school. As part of our positive behaviour policy, children are given acknowledgement when they demonstrate they are evidencing a Christian value, for example ‘being generous in the playground’ and our Restorative Practice refers children back to the value they have neglected and how to correct this.

Throughout our RE curriculum, we also promote our Christian values and educate our pupils about the faiths and beliefs of people from different countries and organisations. We believe that our Christian identity plays an important role in upholding British Values within our school community and these are included in our Collective Worship planning.

Our Christian Values, where possible, are linked to the school PSHE and directly to our RE programme. Each half term there is a focus on one Christian Value and these rotate on a 2-year rolling programme.
