Values and Ethos

Our school motto is: Cherish All, Achieve Together, and this encompasses all that we do at the school.

This is based on "Dear Friends, let us love one another for love comes from God."  1 John 4:7

We aim to develop a school with a strong pastoral ethos, supporting and developing each pupil during their time in the school. We value each member of our school community as a unique individual and model God’s love to each other and the wider community. 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'. These sit alongisde our the Church of England 'Values for Life' and help form the basis of our Collective Worship (assemblies). These fit in with the Church of England Curriculum elements, as seen in the table below.

Dignity and Respect


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 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. Click here to read the latest report.

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.
