Our Vision and Values

Our vision for Bloxham CE Primary is that the school becomes central to its diverse community and for all members to feel included, valued and treated equitably. Nurture and the development of self-worth are fundamental to the Bloxham approach. We are a voluntary controlled Church of England School, welcoming pupils and families of all faiths.  

We aspire for our school community to be loved and glad for who they are, to be courageous in their learning and brave in their honesty.

Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9

Our Theologically Rooted Christian Vision (T.R.C.V) is that we make a difference to ourselves and those around us by showing kindness, care and compassion, just as St Paul wrote to the Thessalonians, ‘Encourage one another and build each other up.’ Thessalonians 5: 11 

By modelling kindness, compassion and honesty, we support and encourage others to adopt these values, not just within the school but within their lives generally, so this extends into our community - local, national and global.  We believe that in supporting our pupils to feel worthwhile,  we support them to feel safe, enabling them to be curious to learn, ambitious to succeed and to have the confidence to be creative.

Our motto, Be . Build . Become encapsulates our belief that our pupils are valued for who they are and that we will support, encourage and nurture them to become who they want to be. 

In 2023, following extensive consultation with governors, staff, children and families, we selected six new values, our " I- CATCHING" Bloxham Bs...

Be diverse, equitable and INCLUSIVE

Be kind and compassionate … be CARING

Be curious to learn and AMBITIOUS to succeed

Be supported to feel safe by being TRUSTWORTHY and truthful

Be CREATIVE

Be HONEST

These values exemplify how we act and behave and are reinforced in every aspect of our work. Each of the values, can be explained through the stories of Christianity and other major faiths. Within school, you see pupils earning KBVs for Keeping Bloxham Values and will hear this language being used by staff to support and praise pupils.
