Visions and Values

Whitchurch Church of England Infant and Nursery Academy

“Learning as we grow. Growing as we learn. Rooted in Jesus.”


At Whitchurch Church of England Infant and Nursery Academy, our view is that education is for life.


School Strategic Vision:


Our Governor's vision for growing our great school is firmly rooted in our Christian ethos, providing each child in our school with an inspirational education, so that we continue to successfully support each pupil to develop academically, personally, socially and spiritually.

We recognise the impact that conversion to academy status will have on the school and ultimately on the education of the children who come here. The school is confident in looking forward. We remain absolutely committed to meeting the needs of our pupils, helping them to realise their potential and move with confidence to the next phase of their learning.

This strategic vision will inform our key objectives for the school until 2021, enabling us to continue to raise achievement and standards and ensure that the school is at the heart of the community.


School Values:


As a ‘Church of England’ school, we believe it is important to develop core values by which to live well together and which help to develop a moral and spiritual awareness. We seek to explore the meanings of the core values and their significance through our daily acts of worship. The gifts of ‘Respect, Kindness, Honesty, Trust, Peace and Love’ are the values we hope and aspire that our children will foster.


School Mission Statement:


To create a welcoming and inclusive environment in which all children will flourish. Every child is encouraged to care for, respect and appreciate the ultimate worth of others, developing positive relationships as they take their first steps towards becoming responsible, thoughtful and confident adults of the future, making successful contributions to their local and the global community.


School Aims:


  • Offer a safe and secure environment where all children are encouraged to be positive about their learning, aspire to realise their full ability and take pride in their achievements.
  • Nurture, in all children, a respect for the spiritual, moral and cultural values of races, religions and ways of life different to their own, celebrating difference and diversity.
  • Enable children to participate in daily acts of Collective Worship which are central to our Church School community, contributing towards the spiritual development of both children and adults.
  • Provide high quality religious education that supports children to develop religious literacy.
  • Promote and provide inclusive "can do" practice which emphasises hope, security, stability and success for all our children.
  • Help children develop lively, enquiring minds by providing a stimulating, creative and challenging curriculum in which learning is enjoyable and fun.
  • Motivate and engage children through inspirational teaching which provides the children with the skills, knowledge, confidence and self-esteem that will enable them to become enthusiastic lifelong learners.
  • Encourage children to care for themselves, respect each other, value their school and the community and environment in which they live.
  • Value and encourage the active involvement of parents, carers and the community in supporting the education and well-being of our children.
  • Continuously strive to improve as a learning community respecting the ideas and contributions of all.


Our vision, values and aims grew out of a series of participatory workshops held with our school community.
