Our Vision and Values

Vision and Values


Growing and learning together to embrace life in all its fullness


John 10:10 ‘I came to give life – Life in all its fullness’. 



In the life of our school, this means that we provide a caring, happy and secure environment where every child feels valued and can flourish.  It reflects a Christian understanding that God’s love is for everyone recognising that every child has individual talents, needs and a worthy contribution to make. 


We provide a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum where every child is seen as a unique learner making exceptional progress from their starting points, thoroughly enjoying their time at our school.  Our children enjoy a wide range of memorable learning experiences, both within and beyond the classroom, instilling a sense of awe and wonder for the world around us.  Through daily collective worship and deep-rooted links with the local Church community, children are given the opportunity to develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of a wide variety of cultures.       


We believe that the wellbeing and happiness of every child is essential and the needs of our children are at the heart of everything we do.  Our committed, caring and approachable staff act as role models for our children educating them for wisdom, hope, community and dignity within our loving Radwinter CofE Primary School family.      


Our vision reflects our belief about ourselves and each other; ensuring the voices of all our school community are heard and together endeavouring to serve the common good.  We constantly strive to inspire and engage all of our children to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.  Jesus said ‘I have come that you may have life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10) and we emulate this by learning from our community; celebrating diversity, difference and the fullness of life.        


Our Christian vision is lived out in our values of fairness, forgiveness, kindness, respect and service which are rooted in the teaching of Jesus and underpin everything we do.  By instilling these values in our children, they are able to embrace life in all its fullness looking upwards, outwards and inwards drawing on these values to guide them.      


Our Christian vision has been developed by our whole school community including pupils, families, staff, governors and wider stake holders.  Their thoughts, opinions, hopes and dreams have been captured at every stage of its production and are reflected in every statement.    


Within our school community our guiding values are:



We learn that God loves each and every one of us and treats us in a fair and just way. We are encouraged to treat each other with the fairness he has shown to us and to be inclusive of everyone. 


"Be just and fair to all," says the LORD (Isaiah 56:1)




We learn that we all make mistakes but are encouraged that, just as God forgives us, we should forgive others.  


Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us" (Luke 11:4)




We are encouraged to care for and show kindness towards each other.  


"Be kind to one another" (Ephesians 4:32)




We are taught that we are all individual and unique and are encouraged to respect and value the differences in others.  


"Show proper respect to everyone" (1 Peter 2:17 NIV)

"However you want people to treat you, so treat them" (Matthew 7:12)




We believe that we all have individual gifts and talents which we can use to help others. We are encouraged to think of and support others in all we do.  


"Serve one another in love" (Galatians 5:13)

"Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others" (1 Peter 4:10)
