Wootton-by-Woodstock Primary

Mission Statement

With deep regard for its strong Church Foundation and the National Society’s Statement of Entitlement Wootton-By-Woodstock School seeks to:

  • Ensure that all those associated with the School can feel at ease with the church; to have knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith and to feel comfortable in exploring and expressing their own religious beliefs.
  • Nurture the school’s strong ethos, which is based in key Christian values, but without exerting pressure to believe. The School’s Christian values are: friendship, service, courage, koinonia, creativity, faith, stewardship, peace, hope, generosity, wisdom, honesty, thankfulness, compassion, justice, forgiveness, humility and reverence.
  • Enable pupils to know about and understand Christianity as a living faith that influences the lives of people worldwide and as the religion that has most shaped British culture and heritage.
  • Contribute to the development of pupils’ own spiritual/philosophical convictions, exploring and enriching their own beliefs and values.
  • Develop in our pupils an understanding of, and respect for, other major world faiths, enabling them to learn about their impact on society, culture and the wider world.
  • Welcome all children from the neighbourhood irrespective of religion or belief, race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability or disability, opinion or family background.

Through its nurturing culture Wootton-by-Woodstock Church of England Primary School also aims to:

  • Inspire creativity, foster spiritual growth, engender respect and cultivate responsibility.  Provide a happy, safe and caring environment for learning where everyone is valued for their own individual talents and personality;
