Christian Vision

Hethersett VC Primary School empowers its children and their families to flourish and grow. Creativity, compassion, responsibility, the love of learning to gain knowledge and wisdom, combined with Christian values shape our inclusive education.

Together we are stronger, respecting ourselves and others to create a successful and healthy future.



Keep your roots deep in him, build your lives on him, and become stronger in your faith, as you were taught. And be filled with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:7



Our school values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


We are very proud of our status as a Church School. As a community the governors, staff, pupils and parents share core values which are rooted in Christian principles; they inspire us and permeate our life and work together:





These guide our behaviour and our thinking; we believe that it is important for children to see values in action in order to develop their emotional intelligence and their own set of positive social, moral and spiritual values.  Each half-term the whole school community will focus on one of these values which will be introduced in collective worship, reinforced and celebrated in all areas of our school life, by adults and pupils alike. A values-based vocabulary is common to every school class.


We represent our core values on a symbolic tree to make it easier for us to relate to them and remember them.  They are rooted in everything we do and will help the children to grow in strength and understanding whilst at the school.


Our values reflect our ethos:

  • In the leadership and management of our school, its shared aims and mission statement.
  • In staff example and their use of moral language
  • In the subjects of the curriculum
  • In collective worship
  • In learning
  • In teaching methods
