Mission Statement 2018

Pickhill Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary



Achieving more together

Our Vision

  We want Pickhill to be a school with excellent teaching where Christian values underpin the entire ethos and teaching of the school. We want all pupils to have a love of learning and achieve their personal best, with the majority achieving above national average results. We want to work in partnership with other schools, parents, the Church and the community to offer a wide range of educational and social experiences which enables all pupils to make smooth transitions to secondary education and provides them with a strong ethical basis for their adult lives.


Our Mission


Our mission is to achieve this vision by providing high quality education in a safe, caring Christian school where pupils can enjoy their learning and social experiences and achieve their potential.  Collective Worship is a focal point in the daily life of our school and we aim to provide opportunities for the spiritual development of both staff and children.


We will do this by:

  • Having high expectations for all pupils and providing opportunities for them to achieve their full personal potential by encouraging them in the various aspects of school life
  • Providing a safe but stimulating learning environment that supports pupils in becoming confident, self-motivated, enquiring and innovative
  • Encouraging attitudes of self respect, tolerance and responsibility so that pupils are well prepared for their future
  • Developing a sense of Christian spirituality across the curriculum and through daily acts of worship
  • Developing pupils’ understanding of healthy and safe lifestyles so they can make informed choices
  • Helping children to develop a concern for their environment and global eco issues
  • Working in partnership with other schools to maximise pupils’ learning, friendships and non-academic opportunities
  • Developing pupils’ global awareness and understanding of other religions and cultures
  • Helping pupils to understand Britain’s cultural heritage and their roles and responsibilities as good citizens
  • Maintaining effective partnership working with parents, the local church and community and all stakeholders
  • Ensuring effective leadership and governance


All our work is underpinned by the school’s chosen values. The pupils are encouraged to interpret these within the context of eco issues and global awareness:
