Vision & Values

“Learn with Love, Flourish in Faith”

Our School Vision

Do everything in love (1 Corinthians 16:14)

As an inclusive Christian school, Church of the Ascension C.E Primary School aims to create a loving, caring and respectful community, where individuals can flourish spiritually, socially and academically as children of God in a rich learning environment. Our vision is to inspire lifelong learning, whilst encouraging resilience, independence, aspiration and an appreciation of God’s wonderful world.

We believe the six key values which characterise our school are:

  • Thankfulness
  • Generosity
  • Respect
  • Forgiveness
  • Honesty
  • Perseverance

We believe that these core Christian values are fundamental in helping to develop our children into responsible citizens of the future and will allow them to achieve their God-given potential.


‘Always be thankful.’ 1 Thessalonians 5:16

At Church of the Ascension (CE) Primary School, we encourage every child to express thankfulness and develop an appreciation of the world around them and everything that God has provided for them. It is our belief that thankfulness and gratitude are at the heart of spirituality, worship and happiness.


‘God loves a cheerful giver.’ 2 Corinthians 9:7

As Christians we are called to be generous. God’s generosity towards us goes above and beyond anything that we can ask or think. Christian generosity is about far more than just sharing what we have: our time, our praise and our compassion. Regardless of the exact form our generosity takes, we encourage children to put others first and show one another the same love that Jesus showed to us.


‘Do to others as you would have them do to you.’ Matthew 7:12

It is our belief that we are all made in the image of God, that everyone is special, everyone’s opinion matters, everyone’s contribution is important, everyone’s feelings should be considered and everyone’s faith is sacred. At Church of the Ascension (CE) Primary School, we are an inclusive and welcoming family who celebrate each other’s achievements.


‘Forgive as the Lord forgave you.’ Colossians 3:13

Because we are part of God’s family, we are forgiven and welcome no matter what. In our school, we offer a secure environment in which individuals can make mistakes on the road to reaching their full potential.


‘Do that which is honest.’ Corinthians 13:7

When we are honest, we build strength of character that will allow us to be of great service to God and to others. We are blessed with peace of mind and self-respect and will be trusted by the Lord and others.


‘With God, all things are possible.’ Matthew 19:26

The power of perseverance shows the willingness to keep moving forward despite the obstacles that stand in the way: perseverance builds character and resilience. We aim to create a safe and nurturing environment where each child is encouraged to persevere to fulfil their dreams and reach their full, God-given potential.
