Dishforth Church of England Primary School Mission Statement

Our vision is to help children develop a sense of respect, tolerance and self-confidence. We encourage and support children to achieve their full potential and to develop a life-long passion for learning.

We seek to enable all children and adults at this school to be ‘Rooted and Grounded in Love’ (Ephesians 3:17) so that they might grow to the fullness of their potential having the ‘The Roots to Grow and the Wings to Fly’ and living lives of trust, compassion, respect and perseverance.

As a church school at the heart of our local community, Christian values underpin our work with the values of respect, trust, compassion and perseverance fundamental to our relationships and our commitment to ensure equality for all pupils.

We are a welcoming, friendly and caring inclusive school, committed to working in partnership with parents, governors and the Church
