Vision and Christian Values


Our Mission

‘Achievement for Everyone’
Our vision for Croft Church of England Primary School reflects our passionate commitment to ensure that all children feel safe, happy and achieve their full potential as unique individuals and learners. This will be achieved by all children, staff, parents and governors working together in partnership.

Our Ethos
The ethos is the characteristic spirit of the school.

Croft Church of England Primary School works in partnership with the community to provide an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and Practice, and understanding of shared values. We celebrate the diversity of the wider community and are committed to the principles of inclusion and equality of opportunity.

Values are fundamental expressions of what we think and believe. As a school we encourage children to think about personal and social values, to become aware of, and involved in the life and concerns of their community and society, and so develop their capacity to be active and effective future citizens.
As a Church school we embrace the following Christian values: Reverence, Wisdom, Thankfulness, Humility, Endurance, Service, Compassion, Trust, Peace, Forgiveness, Friendship, Justice, Hope, Creation, Koinonia. We have added Happiness to this list.

The most important of these, in the opinions of parents, staff, governors and pupils, in connection with our school were:

Friendship is fundamental to the development and fulfilment of ourselves and others, and the good of the community.


Develop self-respect, and respect for others. Promote inclusion, and appreciate and value the diversity of people’s circumstances and backgrounds.


Maintain a ‘can do’ attitude and aspire to achieve goals.


Show care and concern, and exercise goodwill toward others.


The members of our school family are interdependent: all are needed and valued and each person is important to the whole community. We work together to ensure all feel included and valued.

Be safe together and live in harmony - Christian love and unity

Find pleasure, contentment and joy.
