Values and Ethos

Our Christian vision is to: “Cherish All, Achieve Together”

This has been inspired by the parable of the Good Samaritan, where we can all: “Love your neighbour” Luke 10:25-37. We live this out though our Rainbow Values (Responsibility, Perseverance, Co-operation, Friendship, Kindness, Honesty, Respect). We aim to develop a school with a strong pastoral ethos, enabling everyone to flourish during their time in the school. We value each member of our school community as a unique individual and model God’s love and care to each other and the wider community- cherishing all, and achieving together!
 We want our children to flourish and develop dignity and respect for others. Through a drive for progress and an innovative curriculum was hope our pupils leave us as well rounded, confident individuals with skills to take on any challenge!

We fully adhere to The Church of England Vision for Education that “joy in learning is a mark of the good teacher and the well-taught pupil…and any education that does not communicate joy, wonder, amazement, fascination and delight has failed.’ (p12)

We expect high standards of behaviour from the pupils; and the staff are determined to provide high quality teaching and learning opportunities. We value every child and support each child to succeed. We know that every child is special and we treat them as individuals. 

Underpinning our Ethos are the 'Rainbow Values' and these help form the basis of our Collective Worship (assemblies). These fit in with the Church of England Curriculum elements.


As a Church of England School we teach these values and the Christian ideas underpin our ethos. We encourage tolerance and value everyone. Children are rewarded for demonstrating our Rainbow Values, effort, kindness and thoughtfulness.  We work closely with the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich and our school is regularly inspected by the National Society of Anglican and Methodist Schools.

We understand core British Values as: 

Rule of Law 
Individual Liberty 
Mutual respect and tolerance towards those of different faiths and cultures 

Teachers remind children about managing their behaviour and the importance of school rules. Furthermore, they are taught to believe in themselves and pursue excellence through hard work, within a climate of high expectations and support.  At Worlingworth, our pupils benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum which contain units of work which are underpinned by British values and British culture. 

At Worlingworth, values of tolerance and respect permeate all areas of school life. This engenders a climate within which pupils feel safe and secure and facilitates the fulfilment of potential.  Pupil voice plays an integral part in driving the school forward and school rules at different levels are seen as the foundation upon which this can be achieved.  

Our PSHE and RE Curricula encourages respect and appreciation of everyone and their individual beliefs and values.
