Our Vision and Values

Our vision for Weare Academy Church of England First School is that:-

‘All can achieve’

  • Everyone is valued and respected
  • Relationships grow through kindness and compassion
  • We appreciate and show the importance of forgiveness
  • We recognise and are thankful for the opportunities we have
  • We are responsible for making the most of ourselves, each other and the world around us

Our ethos

We are a warm, welcoming and inclusive school and see ourselves as an integral part of the local community, providing an outstanding environment for children to learn. Our aim is that every child will leave our school having achieved their full potential and that they develop a love of learning; and are confident, kind and well-rounded individuals.

Our Christian values

At the heart of our school’s ethos, lie our Christian values. Every half term focus on a particular value within Collective Worship and in class reflection time. We listen to stories from the bible and take time to consider how we can incorporate this value into our daily lives. Our core Christian Values are:- Thankfulness, Kindness and Compassion, Respect, Forgiveness and Responsibility.


“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love endures forever.”.

Psalm 107:1

We invited our families to share in the celebration of the harvest at St Gregory’s church.

Kindness and Compassion

Kindness through all our interactions with each other.

“Whatever you do, do it with kindness and love”.

1 Corinthians 16:14

Acts of Kindness

Each child in the school received an Acts of Kindness Calendar and then recorded their own acts of kindness over a two week period. They returned them to school and shared in their classes and in service what they had done. Each child received an Acts of Kindness certificate from the School Council.


Respect by valuing every individual for their uniqueness, celebrating similarities and differences and all that they bring to our school community.

1 Peter 2:16
Luke 6:31


Forgiveness because we understand that we all make mistakes.

“How often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?” “No!” Jesus replied, “seventy times seven!”

Matthew 18:22

Each class has its own reflection corner. We share stories and events which affect us as individuals and as members of society, and display some of our ideas in this special place.


Accepting personal responsibility means taking ownership of your own behaviour and the consequences of that behaviour.

“Work hard cheerfully at whatever needs to be done”

Colossians 3: 23
