Vision and Values



We are one family;

Love for ourselves, for each other and for the world


'Let all that you do be done in love’ 1 Corinthians 16:14.

Our school vision: 


We care about our local and global community and share God’s love and wisdom in all that we do. As members of our Stoborough School family, children become confident individuals, who develop a life-long love of learning and a passion and commitment for improving the world around them. Our pupils learn to take care of themselves and show care to each other, enabling them to flourish and make a positive difference.


Rooted in Theology


In the Bible there are different words to describe different kinds of love. Our core value of love is what the Bible refers to as Agape.  Agape is the love of God for His people and the corresponding love that Christians have for other people.  Whereas our common notion of love is emotional, the focus of Agape love is an act of the will. It is not just about feeling, it is action. Love, in this Christian sense, should be generous, unconditional and boundless. This love is seen most clearly in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. At Stoborough we seek to love ourselves, each other and the world in this way, as Christ loves us. 


Our School Values:



Love for ourselves - Confidence - Be confident


Love for others- Compassion- Be compassionate


Love for the world- Curiosity- Be curious


Our core values are at the centre of our school Christian ethos; curriculum and wider provision; policies and planning; day-to-day interactions and decisions.


Our values guide pupils' personal development as effective learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. Our children have regular opportunities to reflect on our values and show the values in action. Each Friday, in Celebration Worship, we recognise School Value Champions, who have demonstrated our school values. Their value leaf is added to our values tree in the hall.
