Our Christian Vision Statement:

 Rooted in faith; enriching young minds


At Great Finborough Church Primary School, it is our aim to provide our children with a strong and firm foundation in Jesus Christ and his teachings.   By learning from and trusting in His teachings and having confidence in Him, the children will be rooted in faith and draw nourishment from Him like ‘trees planted in water’ and they will ‘bear much fruit’.   Through prayer, worship, and by listening to and reading the Word of God, our intention is to anchor the children firmly in faith so that the Fruits of the Spirit can grow.   They are then rooted, grounded and secure individuals who can flourish and are enriched spiritually, socially, emotionally and academically.   


Our vision derives from Galatians 5:22-23

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”


These fruits of the spirit are our Christian values which we teach and reflect upon during whole school and class Collective Worship and are considered carefully during the school day.

 Each year, we focus on learning and developing three of the fruits of the spirit.

Collective Worship

Worship lies at the heart of Christian life, and at Great Finborough Church Primary our assemblies allow us to join together in a daily act of collective worship which makes links to our school’s core Christian Values. We follow the Anglican Church Calendar when planning Collective Worship and we have built up an excellent relationship with the Church to support this work.   At Great Finborough we offer many exciting and spiritually developing experiences for all the children.

Our school’s collective acts of worship aim:

  • To give an opportunity to worship God.
  • To offer children a spiritual dimension to their lives and personal relationships.
  • To provide regular time and opportunity for reflection
  • To provide time and opportunity for thanksgiving
  • To help children to develop a sense of awe and wonder at the world around them
  • To develop an awareness of and concern for the needs of others
  • To provide time to share with others the things we have been doing, our thoughts and ideas.
  • To help our children develop shared values
  • To give children experience of being active members of a caring community.
  • To respond in a compassionate and civilised way to experiences of injustice, cruelty, exploitation and greed.
