Vision & Values
“Rooted in God’s love, everyone growing together to be the best that we can be”
Ephesians chapter 3 verse 17
14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
At Barrow URC Primary School, our school family, including children, parents, staff and governors, live, learn and work by our seven core values. Our values enhance and bring meaning to our vision ‘Rooted in God’s love, everyone working together to be the best that we can be’ and to help ensure that all members of our school family flourish and develop on their own personal journey.
Our values have been chosen to reflect the views and beliefs of our whole school family and are: RESPECT, HONESTY, TRUST, LOVE, PEACE, KINDNESS & FORGIVENESS.
As a welcoming and inclusive URC primary school, we believe that everyone is loved by God and we strive to ensure that our vision and values are lived so that every member of our school family can develop and grow to be the best that they can be in all aspects of their lives.
