Visions and Values

Love life; love learning; love one another


Our vision of the school is built upon community - learning together, discovering together and loving one another in order to achieve the highest standards across the curriculum, in our values and how we behave.

'A new command I give you: love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.' - John 13 v34


Our Mission

Our mission is to strive for excellence.  The spirit and teaching of the Christian faith underpin all aspects of school life.  We are committed to encouraging and supporting individuals to reach their full potential in becoming life-long, independent learners.

Our Values

Our values are embedded in all aspects of school life, rooted in fundamental Christian principles. They are reflected in our restorative approaches and form the basis of our restorative approaches and are also our school rules.






Be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. (2 Timothy 4:2)



Have the same respect one for another, not minding high things, but going along with the lowly: be not wise in your own eyes. (Romans 12:16)



Let us be judged as servants of Christ, and as those who are responsible for the secret things of God. (1 Corinthians 4:1)



Preparing Children for Life in Modern Britain


At Sutton Courtenay Primary School we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts and, in particular, our RE, PSHE and Citizenship lessons provide excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.

The school makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown, through for example, sporting events, a range of visits and use of outdoor education centres. Their strong rooted values-based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.
