Our Christian Vision & Values

St Barnabas and St Paul's is a welcoming, caring Church of England Primary School, where every member of the  school community is respected, valued and encouraged to flourish academically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.


Our School Vision


'Be the best for God that you can be in all you do, whilst demonstrating Christian values which are pertinent to all faiths.' 


St Paul tells us, ‘Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people’ (Colossians 3:23).


Our school vision enables and inspires the diverse community we serve to be ambitious, dedicated and to strive for success. Following the example set by St Barnabas 'The Encourager', we accomplish this by promoting high expectations in all aspects of our school life, and through our Christian values of compassion, trust, thankfulness, forgiveness, hope and perseverance. This will ensure all of our pupils will become successful in their future lives, working and living amongst people with a wide range of viewpoints and beliefs. 


Our Christian Values


Our Christian Values are:


Hope - Compassion - Trust - Forgiveness - Perseverance - Thankfulness

Through God’s love for us we demonstrate our school Christian Values:

Isaiah 40:31



‘For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly father will also forgive you’

Matthew 6:14



‘I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance’

Revelations 2:19



‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding’

Our Christian Values guide us in all we do - the way we think, the way we speak and the way we act.
