Our School's Mission

Weston Turville CE School's mission statement is "to pursue wisdom within a Christian Ethos". 

We provide a caring and stimulating environment underpinned by Christian values where our pupils achieve their best both personally and academically.  Because we believe that God loves everyone, equality is very important to us and we welcome everyone regardless of faith, ethnicity, culture, age, gender and ability.  Founded by Sir Arthur Isham of Weston Turville in 1873, the school's central purpose was set out in its original trust deed - to educate the poor of the parish.  As such, the staff and governors extend a special warm welcome to local families who are vulnerable and in need.

“Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth.  Love never gives up, and its faith, hope and patience will never fail.”                                                                                                                                                              1 Corinthians 13 v4-7

We have six Christian values that are central to the school's mission.  These are respect, honesty, perseverance, fairness, kindness and trust.

We have three equality objectives:

  • Minority groups are fully integrated into the school and say they do not feel discriminated against.
  • Racist incidents remain at minimal or zero by the end of Summer 2020.
  • Everyone is clear about the school’s Christian values and ethos of equal opportunity.
