Christian Vision

christian vision 1

Core Value:



Together we love to learn and learn to love


St Mary’s CE Infant School is committed to inspiring every individual. We embed the Christian value of love across school life because we believe that a person who feels loved, secure and happy can flourish. We encourage everyone to achieve their potential, develop their talents, celebrate their uniqueness, and rejoice in their relationships with others.

Biblical Text:

‘Do Everything in Love’ 1 Corinthians 16:14

Our Christian vision is taken from the letter the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Corinth where he gave instructions for living God’s way. In the last few lines of his letter, Paul reminds us that all our actions, however big or small, should be an expression of our love for others.

Happy Rules:

Be kind
Be helpful
Take turns
Be welcoming

We aim to embed our core value of love through Bible stories and parables including The lost Sheep, The Lost Coin and The Good Samaritan.

We are supported in our vision by Oxfordshire Diocesan Board of Education.

Our Christian vision was developed by school stakeholders in November 2016 (Revised November 2019)
