Our Vision and Values

Nurturing Creative Thinking For Life-Long Learning


Our school family is centered around the belief that we are all unique learners of equal value and loved by God.


  • We inspire confidence and creativity within a forward thinking environment.
  • We equip all learners to develop their academic, emotional, spiritual and moral potential.
  •  Our pupils are happy, well rounded life-long learners.

Our vision is rooted in the bible:

Jesus said’ I have come that you may have life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10)

He calls us to a full life in mind, body, heart and spirit.

Therefore, we believe the purpose of education is to nurture learners who:

Don’t stop learning. Don’t stop being teachable. Don’t stop growing.

Who remain life – long learners, and keep the wonder of the moments.


As a nurturing Christian community our Shipley Values guide us in living out our vision. 

Each half term, we focus on a different Christian Value. This is done explicitly through our Collective Worship time.

Children have regular opportunities to reflect on each value and to develop an understanding of the Value in action.

Each Friday, in our Celebration Worship, we acknowledge children who have demonstrated these values.

The values we explore and strive to live by are

Love, Honesty, Thankfulness,

Forgiveness, Resilience, Respect
