Vision, values and mission

Our Vision

John 10:10 ‘Life in all it’s fullness’


We are proud to be a Church of England primary school, and our vision is firmly based upon Christian the principle of ‘life in all it’s fullness’. At Beckley, we believe in the pursuit of academic rigour and excellence going hand in hand alongside the broader flourishing and well-being of everyone in our school family.

We ensure that we celebrate achievement in all of its forms, as well as the effort that goes into to making progress. We work hard to cultivate a sense of genuine belief in others, alongside a self-belief that enables people to take risks and ‘have a go’, without a fear of failure. These qualities are able to flourish because we make caring a really high priority – care for others, care for our work, care for our surroundings.

Our Values

At Beckley, our approach to learning is firmly built upon Christian values: enabling every child to grow spiritually and emotionally; fostering imagination and a deep sense of personal identity and self-worth; providing guidance through the loving example of Jesus Christ. The following four key elements run through all that we do and value:

  • Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills
  • Education for hope and aspiration
  • Education for community and living well together
  • Educating for dignity and respect

Our Mission

Our mission is to ensure that each child will develop an appetite for learning which will endure throughout their lives. We want every member of our school family to be excited and motivated in their learning so that they engage fully, cultivate positive attitudes and relationships and make good progress. We are passionate about supporting everyone at Beckley to fulfill their true potential and ‘Achieve, Believe and Care‘.

Our School Worship

As a Church of England school, we place a high importance on whole-school worship. This happens on a daily basis and we base our worship on a Christian Value which changes every school term. Staff, pupils and the clergy from our local church lead school worship regularly. We also hold a weekly time of celebration, when parents are invited to join us as we celebrate the Achieving, Believing and Caring that has taken place during the week.
