Stoke Goldington Church of England First School; Ethos & Aims

Stoke Goldington CE First School and North Crawley CE School aim to serve their communities by providing an inclusive education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief, values and practice. The governors, headteacher and staff recognise their duty to raise educational standards and deliver a creative curriculum that is broadly-based, well-planned and individualised.

  • We believe that every child is able to reach their maximum potential to become independent critical, reflective life-long learners.
  • We provide an inspirational and stimulating teaching environment so that our children will develop lively minds that are creative, imaginative and enquiring.
  • We nurture our children in a safe and secure caring community where they can develop confidence, positive attitudes and feel valued.
  • We promote Christian values through our work and relationships so that children recognise their relevance throughout their lives.
  • We build positive relationships between children, staff, parents and the wider community which are based on the Christian values of kindness, trust and respect.
  • Our friendly village school enables children to build friendships, enjoy learning and have many happy memories.

Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Churches at parish and diocesan level. The school encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.

“Be the best that you can be: whatever you do work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord” (Colossians 3.23 (NIV))
