Our Christian vision and values


Our vision, rooted in the words of Paul the Apostle (1 Corinthians 13:13), “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love', is to ensure an environment where children can imitate the love of Jesus by treating others as they wish to be treated themselves. Love for us at Christ Church Primary is showing care, compassion and respect for one another, celebrating that we are all unique whilst being part of a family- our class, our school, our community.


To achieve our vision, we aim:


  • To make this school a place of enjoyment where success is celebrated.
  • To create a welcoming environment where every pupil’s contribution is valued and where they feel happy and secure.
  • To create stimulating and challenging learning areas, with activities that are purposeful and relevant.
  • To enliven and enrich the curriculum by visits, visitors and the use of the local environment.
  • To involve parents and the wider community as partners within the school.
  • To ensure supportive provision for our pupils’ personal development.
  • To encourage responsibility in our pupils to develop their self-confidence.
  • To treat our pupils as individuals and to differentiate teaching to ensure all pupils achieve their full potential in all areas.
  • To encourage pupil’s development of a caring attitude for themselves, for others and for the environment.
  • To ensure all pupils are given equal opportunities and treated fairly.
  • To enable pupils to develop a knowledge and understanding of Christianity and respecting other faiths in our multi-cultural world.


Christ Church Primary School, Denshaw offers a happy, safe and caring environment. We have a unique, family atmosphere, where each child is valued as an individual. We encourage a love of learning and promote a child’s natural curiosity through varying challenges, experiences and opportunities. As a small church school, we develop a knowledge and understanding of Christianity and foster a respect for other people and their beliefs. Our Christian faith gives rise to our service to God and to the community. Our core principles are faith, hope and love.
