Vision, Values and Ethos


"Your beliefs become your thoughts,

your thoughts become your words,

your words become your actions,

your actions become your habits,

your habits become your values,

your values become your destiny."


Mahatma Gandhi


Our Vision, values and ethos


Our vision is to provide children with a love of learning, social competence and the best possible tools to succeed personally, academically, spiritually, morally and socially in a fast paced, ever changing and technological 21st Century world. 


We are proud to be a Church of England, Voluntary Aided Primary School and we have worked hard to embed our vision into the Christian ethos of our school. 


"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my loving eye on you."  Psalm 32.8


As a community, we work together for the good of all of our learners.  The caring, Christian ethos of the school is firmly based on our core values which remind us all that we must consistently strive to achieve and exceed our potential. 


Our Core Values


Our school community identified three core, Christian, values that we believe should underpin every aspect of our work, play and relationships.  They are at the heart of everything we do and our commitment to providing the very best for the pupils in our care.  These were reviewed (by representatives of our school community) in 2017 and it was agreed that they were still relevant to our aspiration for excellence. 


Our Core Values are:



Every member of our school community aims to demonstrate politeness, honour and care towards others, ourselves, the environment and our world. 


Every member of our community aims to demonstrate good judgement and the ability to act correctly and make decisions on our own. We try to understand and demonstrate our understanding of the fact that actions have consequences.


Every member of our school community aims to consistently demonstrate honesty and tries hard to do what is morally right.  We tell the truth, own up to our mistakes and we know the importance of giving praise and receiving praise.  




Our pupils are our priority.  Our community is built on trust, faith and mutual respect. 


Pupils get one chance.  It is up to us to help them to make it count!
