Ethos & Values

Our Mission Statement

“A mustard seed is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”
Mark 4:30-32

At Oare C of E Primary School, WE CARE about learning and growing together. Nurturing all children from the moment they start their educational journey with us, we form the roots from which our children are able to grow into well educated, caring and loving young people.  We work in partnership with parents, the Church, Excalibur Academies Trust and the community; aiming to make our values visible for every child.

Our values of:

Wonder, Equality, Community, Aspiration, Resilience and Empathy are based on the belief that WE CARE for all of our children.

Through our teaching and learning together we aim to:

  • Encourage our children to have a sense of WONDER for God’s amazing universe, to care about the world we live in and those we share it with.
  • Ensure our school is committed to EQUALITY; we try to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and has equal opportunities.
  • Work together as a school, supporting ourselves as well as others around us and teaching the children to be part of the wider COMMUNITY.
  • Teach all our children the importance of ASPIRATION so they can all succeed and enjoy rich, fulfilled lives.
  • Create a culture where children have RESILIENCE.
  • Develop EMPATHY.

“Use what talents you possess; The woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.”
