Christian Vision and Values

Our school Values

Our Church Links 

As a Church of England Academy, we have very close connections with Holy Trinity in Long Itchington. We also have close links with St Esprit Church in Marton. 


Our Christian Vision 

'Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart" (Colossians 3:23)

We aim to do this in our school, our Multi Academy Trust, our homes and our community whilst following the teachings of Jesus.


Our Children's Aims Statement

'We live, we laugh, we learn together' 

Living in God's love

Laughing in the joy of Christ's risen life

Learning as we walk together in faith


Our Christian Values 

Our Christian Values are at the centre of everything we do at Long Itchington C of E Academy. They help us live out the Christian Vision of the Multi Academy Trust of 'pursuing life in all its fullness.' (John 10:10)


Each half term, we focus on a different Christian Value. This is done explicitly through our Collective Worship time, using the 'Roots and Fruits' resource. We also focus on Christian Values throughout our curriculum. Children have regular opportunities to reflect on each value and to develop an understanding of the value in action. Each Friday, in our Celebration Worship, we acknowledge children who have demonstrated these values.

Our visitors from Holy Trinity Church and the Open the Book Team as well as from St Esprit Church in Marton regularly lead our worship to help us to reinforce our understanding of each value as they share stories from the Bible.


The Half termly Christian values we explore and strive to live by are:

  • Generosity
  • Compassion
  • Courage
  • Forgiveness
  • Friendship
  • Respect
  • Thankfulness
  • Trust
  • Perseverance
  • Justice
  • Service
  • Truthfulness


By using 'Roots and Fruits' we aim that assemblies are

*inspiring and transformational 
*includes a range of creative opportunities, e.g. music, silence, symbol, drama
*develops the Christian vision, values and ethos of the school


We believe these values are empowering our pupils to develop their spirituality and guiding them in personal development as effective learners and good citizens to 'work with all their heart'. For more information please view the 'Christian Values for Schools' website.


Children have opportunities to plan, prepare and lead worship for the whole school through class assemblies.
