School Vision

At Wincle CE Primary School, all stakeholders have collectively created our school vision:

Each term, the pupils, staff and parents come together to work on our school vision and core values. We spend time identifying the meaning of each statement in our vision and learn about key people from the bible who have demonstrated such characteristics. 

In January 2023, the parents and pupils worked together to come up with ideas on how we can best achieve our vision in the future:
