Vision, Aims and Values

Vision Statement

Our School Vision was established through consultation with all members of our school community and was revised in January 2019. 


It our belief that our all members of our school community should strive to:


‘Dream, Believe and Achieve with God’
Mission Statement

Our Vision Statement is biblically derived and underpinned from an unwavering belief that:
"With God all things are possible."  Matthew 19:26
At Broxbourne CE Primary School, we believe that through belief and with the love of God, all children can achieve their full potential.

Our Commitments

We are committed to:


•    Children being at the heart of every decision
•    Providing excellence in learning which is inspiring, exciting and fun
•    Providing a safe, loving, and nurturing Christian community

Loving and valuing everyone is a central element of Christian behaviour and is at the heart of the life of our school. Broxbourne CE Primary is a place where we learn how to love God, one another and ourselves. This is achieved through collective worship, religious education and the application of Christian Values to relationships within and beyond the school.  We strive to nurture among everyone a real sense of purpose of who we are in the world and how special and unique we are in the eyes of God.  We aim to be a Christian community where all are respected and appreciated and we endeavour to inspire children to create a better world through thoughtful respect and compassion.
Through these values, we engage children in learning that helps them be respectful and aware of their feelings, emotions and beliefs and those of others in society.


Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) learning takes place across all areas of learning and school life and ensures pupils are aware of the history and values of Britain and prepares our children to succeed, contributing positively to life in modern Britain.  


As part of this, we aim to help children understand the role of British Values in society. These include: democracy, the rules of law, individual liberty and respect and tolerance of those with different faiths. This is achieved overtly through our curriculum including whole school assemblies.


We develop children’s knowledge, understanding, and awareness of Christianity, as the predominant religion in Great Britain, and of the other principal religions, faiths and beliefs represented in this country to encourage celebration and acceptance of all people.
