7 years in 7 minutes... a little snapshot of our values & what the children can expect of their time with us.

We aim to be an inclusive, caring school where we give everyone the time and support needed to challenge and guide one another – to open minds and widen horizons – to work together towards the flourishing of all members of our school community so that everyone can fulfil their potential.


"If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." Matthew 21:22


Our Christian Values

Our Christian Values shine through in all we do at Claypole Church of England Primary School.


TRUST:  We care about others showing gentleness, kindness, forgiveness and honesty in all our relationships.  Trust is the very essence of faith; we rely of each other to be the best that we can be. We trust God and each other and know we help to keep ourselves and each other safe.

Psalms 37:3 “Trust in the Lord and do good.”


PEACE:  We show forgiveness and tolerance towards everyone so we get along together.  In moments of reflection we hope for peace for all.

Romans 12:18 “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”


CONTENTMENT:  We pray to show our thanks to God and the people around us.

Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another,

as God in Christ forgave you.”


JUSTICE:  We believe in fairness.  We know everyone in our school is important and has the right to be treated equally.

Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”


RESPECT:  We respect others from all cultures and religions.  We learn about others to allow our respect to grow.  We listen and learn from others.

Matthew 7:12 “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.”


KOINONIA:  We believe quality relationships and partnerships are a central element of interdependence: all are needed and valued and each person is important to the whole. In John 17, Jesus prays that all his followers may be 'perfectly one' as he and the Father are one.

Corinthians 12:12-13 The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body …


RESILIENCE:  We know sometimes things can be difficult but we keep on going and with God's help we don't give up.

James 1:12 “Blessed are those that endureth…”
