Our Ethos, Mission Statement and Values

At Rainford Church of England Primary School we base all that we do on Christian Values.

Our chosen values are celebrated throughout the school year and we aim to embed those values in each member of the school community:  love, joy, peace, forgiveness, friendship, perserverance and justice.  

Our Ethos is summed up in our mission statement: 'Learning and growing together to achieve our best in the love of God'

Our vision and aims:

  • Every child will be encouraged to understand the meaning and significance of faith, experience God’s love and develop the spirituality to enable them to live out our Christian values of love, joy, peace, friendship, forgiveness, perseverance and justice
  • Every child will achieve their full potential through being a highly motivated, resilient and independent learner who embraces new experiences, has confidence to tackle challenges and go onto develop a lifelong love of learning.
  • Every child will value themselves as a unique individual with special qualities and strengths developing self-discipline and honesty; taking responsibility for their own actions and appreciating their ability to make a positive difference in the world.
  • Every child will appreciate and respect others, celebrate differences between individuals and groups and respect and care for God’s creation and the environment.
  • Every child will be encouraged to make healthy choices and appreciate the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

In order to do this, we will constantly reflect the Christian ethos of our school in our relationships with our children, their families, our staff, the church and the wider community.
