St George's CE Primary School - A Church School

Our Mission Statement

At St George’s CE Primary School, children and their learning are central to everything we do. As a church school we serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality within a framework of Christian belief and values. We celebrate diversity by recognising and valuing the contribution made by all individuals. Children with different faiths and no faith are welcomed at our school. Through our motto ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’ and motivated by our Christian faith, we develop skills which will nurture a love of learning which our children will take with them through the next stages of their lives, all the time enabling them to flourish on the journey towards reaching their full potential.

Dream – aspiration, curiosity, questioning, hope, ambition, potential, individuality, resilience, enjoyment

Believe – faith, self-worth, self-esteem, confidence, community, diversity, trust, equality

Achieve – potential, love of learning, engagement, growth, whole child, curriculum, goals, progress, attainment, perseverance


Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart – Colossians 3:23

Our Vision

We aim to provide opportunities through our broad and balanced curriculum for every child to flourish and therefore reach their full potential. High expectations will ensure all our children aim to be the best they can be.

We aim for every child to be motivated to learn and will leave us equipped to continue to love learning throughout life. Each child will develop as a well-rounded individual and will have much to offer as a citizen of the wider world.

Through encouraging confidence and independence, and promoting individuality and uniqueness, our children will be happy and so feel safe and secure when exploring opportunities and making choices.


 Our Values

As a Church of England primary school, we believe the Christian Values underpin all we do. They are the values we consider when interacting with each other, when carrying out tasks and when planning for the future. We focus on these values during whole school and class assembly times. Children are rewarded for displaying these values through their behaviour and through their work. 

The Christian Values are:

We celebrate important dates within the Christian calendar but we also learn about other World Faiths through assembly time and RE lessons. 

We use prayer at the end of assembly to enable children to reflect on the assembly's message and to prepare them for the day ahead. Children are encouraged to bring in their own prayers for our display in the hall. 

Unfortunately, the local Church, St George and St Mary's is currently closed. We maintain our links with the church through Rev. Mike Firbank, who is also a trustee with Embark. Mike regularly comes into school to lead assemblies. We are also visited each term by the local Christian Assembly Team.

Courageous Advocacy

We encourage our children to be courageous advocates for change. We do this by supporting a range of charities and raising awareness of different causes. These include Jeans for Genes, Children in Need, Comic/Sport Relief, NSPCC, Young Minds and the British Legion.
