Our Vision and Values

Our Vision and Values


“In His Footsteps, we love, learn and shine together.”


Love: let us love one another as God intended

Learn: Jesus grew in wisdom and stature

Shine Together: within our Christian Community


St. Helen’s C. E. Primary School strives to provide a safe, happy and nurturing environment which puts the needs of our children at the heart of our school. We make learning engaging, inside and outside of the classroom, by providing a broad, balanced and creative curriculum which inspires all children to foster a love of learning and be the very best that they can be. Our school provides all children and adults with a sense of belonging within our school community, so that everyone has pride in what we are achieving.


From this strong foundation we nurture each child by developing resilience, confidence and self-belief through our shared Christian Values of:

• Love

• Hope

• Thankfulness

• Courage

• Forgiveness

• Truthfulness


Whilst we believe that every child should achieve their full potential in the image of God, we are committed to ensuring we develop the whole child, linked to the Church of England’s vision July 2016 of “life in all its fullness”.
