Crockerne Church of England Primary School

To be the best me that I can be

Our Values

At Crockerne, our vision and values are at the core of everything we do.

They underpin our teaching and learning and help create an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy, well-rounded children.


Our school is underpinned by the parable of 

The Good Samaritan, found in Luke 10: 25 – 37.

The values and ethos of this parable, together with the Christian Values, British Values and the school's learning values, support our School Vision that each child can be

“The best ‘me’ I can be”

As a Church of England School, we incorporate the Church of England's Vision for Education into our daily school life. 


The vision for education from the Church of England is deeply Christian, with Jesus' promise of 'life in all its fullness'

at its heart.


The Church of England's role as the established Church, has the vision for the common good of the whole community - eliciting 4 key values


Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.



Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.


Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.



Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.

Promoting Fundamental British Values


In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. We primarily focus on these through our acts of Collective Worship and follow up across the curriculum.  Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.  As you can see from the diagram above they are woven into our daily practice.


The Key Values are:
