Vision & Values

‘Love one another as I have loved you’

John 13:34


Our ethos and values, rooted in Christian teaching, are for all children to be loved and cherished, to learn to build strong respectful relationships, to become enthusiastic learners and thinkers, to learn as much as possible and to become good citizens.



Marsh Baldon CE Primary School is a small, inclusive school where all are supported to learn, grow, succeed and serve others. 

This school is for children of all faiths and of no faith. Our school values are Love, Cooperation, Equality, Respect, Integrity and Courage. Our values have roots in Christianity but are relevant to all people.

We aim for all children to be heard, respected and protected. We put the child at the centre of everything we do to enable them to be the best that they can be by:


  • Providing an affectionate, stable and welcoming environment in which children grow strong relationships and develop deep personal values to live by
  • Providing rich, purposeful and stimulating learning experiences
  • Having high aspirations for all children and by identifying the potential in every child, ensuring that they achieve as much as possible across the whole curriculum
  • Fostering good learning habits
  • Teaching children to become confident, creative and responsible free thinkers who can not only think for themselves but appreciate the value of different points of view
  • Developing strong partnerships with parents, the church, the wider community and agencies that support and protect children.




Christian Foundations for School Values



Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs, love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up and its faith, hope, and patience never fail.  1 Corinthians 13: 4-8a



So then, we must always aim at those things that bring peace and that help to strengthen one another.  Romans 14:19



So there is no difference between Jews and Gentiles, between slaves and free people, between men and women; you are all in union with Christ Jesus.  Galatians 3:28



‘Love your Neighbour as you love yourself’  Mark 12:31



Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. 

Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.  Proverbs 24:25-26



The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.  Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  Psalms 23:1-4
