Dunmow St. Mary’s Vision and Values

Enjoy and Achieve

Enjoy learning and working together to achieve our best

At Dunmow St. Mary’s Primary School, our vision is rooted in the Christian belief that everyone is unique, loved and full of endless potential. Our children will flourish to become resilient, reflective and creative learners who build positive and respectful relationships grown from love, integrity, compassion and inclusivity.

‘With both feet planted firmly in love, living full lives, full in the fullness of God. ‘

Ephesians 3: 17-18

Our Values are at the centre of everything we do. They help us live out our Christian vision of love and life in all its fullness. We believe our values empower our pupils to develop their own worldview and guide them in their personal development as resilient, reflective and independent learners and grow to be adults who will make a positive contribution to the world.

Integrity
We teach the children through our actions and behaviour that truth and respect lie at the heart of everything we do.

Respect
In our school we aim to accept everybody for who they are, even if we don’t agree with them. We listen to others and think before we speak. Respect in our relationships builds feelings of safety, trust and wellbeing.

Compassion
We want our school community to always think about others and show that we care, by our words and our actions and by being there for everyone.

Creativity
We all have different gifts and abilities. Our curriculum provides opportunities to unlock every child’s potential through curiosity, exploration, imagination and innovation. Through this, our children believe that learning possibilities are endless.

Inclusivity
In our school we believe that there are no outsiders. Everybody is embraced, accepted and treated fairly.
