Our Christian Vision, Ethos & Values

'Nurture ~ Believe ~ Discover ~ Achieve'


Our vision for Woodstock CE Primary School reflects a passionate commitment to learning and recognition of the uniqueness of individual learners.  Guided by our Christian values, it is driven by our desire to offer the best possible education for our pupils in partnership with parents, the Church and the local community.

Woodstock CE Primary School will be a centre for learning where adults and children:

  • Nurture and prioritise wellbeing and development.
  • Believe in themselves and in each other.
  • Discover their own strengths and become successful lifelong learners.
  • Achieve more than they ever thought possible.


Recognising our historic foundation, we will preserve and develop our religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Churches at parish and diocesan level. 

Woodstock CE Primary School strives to be an inclusive community where children grow, learn and achieve together. Within a nurturing, supportive and safe environment, mental health and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do and recognised as the responsibility of all.  Children’s natural curiosity is fostered through a creative curriculum that excites and challenges, and enables them to be successful learners.  Supported by a culture of equality and aspiration we aim to remove disadvantage so that every child can thrive.

We are committed to providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.  We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promote Christian values through the experience we offer to all our pupils.

“For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29, v11
