Our Vision and Core Values

Our Vision

At Sampford Peverell C of E Primary School, we provide an attachment-friendly community which fosters warmth with high boundaries so that all can achieve to their full potential.

We are determined to create an inclusive culture of learning where all children will be challenged in their thinking, to achieve to the best of their abilities and strive to become lifelong learners who will grow up to make a positive contribution to the community and world they live in. 

We will empower our children to become respected citizens to enable them to make valuable contributions locally, globally and to contribute to our world’s sustainable future.

Christian Values

The following Christian Values have been adopted by the school for the next year, following a consultation with all of the families with children at school.

Honesty - Christians believe that truth is revealed in the Bible, showing us the way that God means us to live.  In school we encourage everyone to be truthful in their dealings with one another.

Respect  - Respect for God extends to respect for all creation, including all people, animals and our environment.  In school, children and adults are expected to show respect for each other, their belongings and their environment. 'So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.' (Matthew 7:12)

Teamwork  - The Bible teaches that life is a gift from God and it is our responsibility to use our talents and abilities in the best way we can.  In school children are taught to value the contribution that everybody makes to the team.

Forgiveness - Forgiveness is the means by which damaged relationships are restored.  It is an act of the will, motivated by love.  Children and adults in school are helped to acknowledge that we all make mistakes and we all need forgiveness from God and each other.

Kindness - We believe that our school and society should be one that is kind. Where we consider other people's feelings.

These values form the basis of our day to day reflection in school.
