Christian Distinctiveness

We, at Bletchingdon Parochial CE Primary School provide a happy, supportive and nurturing environment. Through the principles of the Christian faith, we help to develop children’s spiritual growth and moral understanding. We believe all members of our school community are valued and respected, so that everyone can have a positive attitude to themselves, others and life.

Our school’s Christian character contributes significantly to the academic achievement, personal development and wellbeing of all learners. Although we are a church school, we are inclusive to all members of the community we serve. Our aim is that pupils from all faiths, as well as those without a faith, feel safe and happy and are secure in the knowledge that their beliefs are respected and valued.

The Christian character of our school is evident in the strong sense of respect existing between staff and pupils, who are proud to be a part of our special school.


As a Church school:

  • We believe each person is unique in the eyes of God. We strive to reflect the love of God, love of life and love of learning in all that we do.

  • We endeavour to build our school on our core Christian values.
  • Our aim is to foster the social, emotional, intellectual, moral and spiritual development of all our pupils.
  • We believe that children need a caring, consistent environment where they are treated with respect and where their well-being is seen as paramount.

We believe that each child should leave school with:

  • A sense of moral and spiritual awareness.

  • A sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them.
  • A love of learning and the desire to achieve high standards.
  • A growing ability to relate to and communicate with other people.
  • A sense of their role as a citizen within our school and the wider community.

“Pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain. Their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong.”
