A strong Christian ethos underpins everything we strive for here at Chevening (St. Botolph's) CE Primary School. Our vision for the school centres on our belief that every child is made in the image of God and therefore is infinitely precious, regardless of their academic abilities or personal circumstances. In practice, this means that we seek to provide the best education, challenge and support each individual child's needs, with the result that all may achieve their potential, academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.
This relates closely to the Church of England's Vision for Education.
Our values help us to achieve this vision and we encourage all members of the school community to share our vision and values. We aspire to demonstrate them in all aspects of school life and enjoy spotting them in one another during each part of the school day.
For Lent 2019, we took part in the 40acts initiative for individuals and groups, with each class tackling a daily 'challenge' to show our Christian Values in action. We will be repeating this commitment for Lent 2020.
The 40acts come from one of the 7 categories below and resonate with our school values:
This year, in order to keep our paper-use at a minimum, the daily challenge will be shared virtually during Act of Worship. We hope to share some of our responses here and via our @CeChevening and @40acts, so keep checking to join in and also see our progress.
School Code: Our school code is based on Jesus' Golden Rule:
