School Vision and Values

Our aim at Crowle Church of England First School is to provide an education of the highest quality underpinned by Christian ethos and values, based on the life and teaching of Jesus, to children of all backgrounds and abilities. We offer an education which aims to meet the needs of pupils both academically and in terms of spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. As a church school we welcome children of all faiths and none but we ask that parents and children support our Christian values and ethos.

We believe in the importance of promoting core Christian Values that help to make our school distinctive and which underpin our philosophy. We explore these values through collective worship (assemblies), in lessons including RE and in the everyday life of the school. We also promote fundamental British Values.

We work hard to ensure our children are: "Caring. Confident and Committed to their learning" and have a theological underpinning that supports our vision, taken from the Bible.

We are also part of the Diocese of Worcester Multi Academy Trust (DOWMAT):
