Our School Christian Vision and Values

Together, Let us Love, Encourage, Achieve and Flourish


Our school vision is theologically rooted and underpins and is interwoven into all aspect of school life. It is through this vision that we model our school culture, values and ethos. Our school vision drives our work and enables the schools to live up to their foundations as church schools. It reflects the needs of the schools and communities and through embedding and living out this vision we hope to deepen the relationship between the schools, families, churches and communities.


The purpose of our school vision is to lay out Who we are; Why we are here; and therefore How we live our lives. When exploring this we considered our 5 core valves:


Generosity          Optimism           Determination          Curiosity          Courage


We also explored what is special about us 'Crowcombe and Stogumber C of E Primary Schools' and the importance we place on being together and ensuring everyone in our schools and communities feel valued, included and that they belong. During our exploration we found a passage from the old testament that reflected our core message.


'And let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some as are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another - and all the more as you see the day approaching'

(Hebrews 10:24-25)


This resonated with us and highlighted key words that we believe reflect our vision for the schools. These words formed our vision:


Together, Let us Love, Encourage, Achieve and Flourish


We actively explore these words with the children through classroom teaching and collective worship. We explore the importance of us being together through friendship, and of showing love and generosity by loving our neighbour as ourselves. We explore encouraging others as well as persevering ourselves and showing determination. We explore having the courage and curiosity to achieve throughout all aspects of our lives, and how with optimism we can all flourish together.


We hope all of our pupils, staff, governors, families and wider communities will support and join us in embedding our school vision.
