Visions and Values

As a church school, St Mary and St Chad CE First School has a Christian ethos, this is reflected in the  experience every child and adult working within the school has. Daily morning worship is held, and this provides an important means of reinforcing the Christian values of the school. Close links are also enjoyed with local churches where the school’s progress is followed with interest by the Church members. The children visit St Mary and St Chad Church for services during the year.


The aims of the school go beyond the undoubted importance of high academic achievement within the child’s capabilities, and job satisfaction of each adult. Children and adults alike are encouraged to value, respect and care for each person as an individual and the contribution that they make to the life of the school.


Therefore our Vision and Values are as follows. The visual logo helps us all to remember our vision. 



Our Vision is

Hand and hand we work together to provide a happy, nurturing and safe environment where every child is inspired to love learning, flourish and reach their God given potential.


This is promoted through our motto and logo 


Aim High Believe, Fly High Achieve  


To support this vision and motto we have the bible reading –

“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”             Isaiah 40:31


Our school values are 

Friendship, thankfulness, courage, respect, peace and hope



Children leading worship based on the values
