Visions and Values

Inspire, Empower, Flourish!


At Swithland, we encourage everyone to be thankful for each blessing from God and, with grateful hearts, look to the inspiring life and teachings of Jesus to guide and empower us to be a loving, giving school in which, with the power of God, our Father, and the Holy Spirit, we can truly flourish.


'Live a life filled with love following the example of Christ.' Ephesians 5: 1-2

'Children's behaviour in lessons and around school is impeccable. Parents' views of the school are wholly positive. Comments such as 'the work of the school reinforces the Christian values of our family life' demonstrate the wider impact of the Christian character of the school.'
SIAMS inspection 2014

We have six core Christian values, that the children and staff determined together, that underpin our ethos.

These are: loyalty, friendship, trust, forgiveness, thankfulness and consideration.
