Vision and Values
Be Ready Be Safe Be Respectful
At Great Waldingfield CEVC School we take pride in our welcoming inclusive church school where each child is
recognised as an individual. Through a foundation of Christian values and with Jesus’ promise of 'life in all
its fullness' at its heart our ethos encourages open minds and kind hearts. Our culture equips children
to accept challenge and inspires them to flourish in all that they do.
“Let the children come to me and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of Heaven
belongs to them” MATTHEW 19:14
‘Our school is not a faith school for Christians but a church school for all,’
Rev Nigel Genders.
Our Christian Values which interweave so much with British Values underpin the life of our school.
We take every opportunity across all subjects and every aspect of school life to embrace these values.
These six key Christian Values are rooted in the teachings of the Bible
Responsibility ̴ We are responsible for own conduct, attitude and behaviour. Galatians 6:5
Justice ̴ ‘The righteous care about justice for the poor’ Proverbs 29:7
Compassion ̴ ‘Be thoughtful and kind in all that we do and help those less fortunate.’ Luke 10:25-37
Forgiveness ̴ 'Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive others.' Colossians 3.13 Respect ̴ 'Do to others as you would have them do to you.' Matthew 7.12
Trust ̴ 'My God is my strength in whom I trust.' Psalm 18.2
