Our Great Wishford Christian Vision and Values

 Our Great Wishford Christian Vision and Values      

No challenge too big, no child too small- for with God nothing will be impossible (Luke 1:37)        

At Great Wishford, our vision is to develop confident, determined and happy young people with enquiring minds and a spirit of curiosity with friendship and respect for themselves, others and the environment around them so that they will have the skills, resilience and creativity to thrive in the world in their time. 


Our Great Wishford Christian Vision 'No challenge to big, no child too small', is underpinned by Luke’s message: 'for with God, nothing will be impossible (Luke 1:37)'. We believe that all of our pupils have the potential to do well, to succeed in their learning and to become valued members of society.  We encourage, support and value the perseverance our children develop together and through showing each other friendship, service and respect every day we encourage and support each other to flourish and 'live life in all its fullness' (John 10:10).


We want to see all our children to flourish in their own creative ways and live life in all its fullness.  We aim to give our pupils the best start, preparing them for their secondary education and their role in modern British society.

We worked in our House Teams to create our Vision Vessel at Great Wishford.  Our families joined us by helping us choose our favourite bits from each picture to represent our school.

Acorn Education Trust Vision and Values

As part of the Acorn Education Trust, we are supported and encouraged to develop our own, individual Christian vision, values and identity. This support is via termly visits and meetings with frequent training on improving and developing ourselves as a Church School. 

Acorn Education Trust has a strong belief in its core purpose: 'Preparing young people for their world in their time.' Acorn Education Trust ensures that all Acorn schools thrive through the foundations of excellence, which you can see in the below illustration.  These ideals are evident in all they do. These foundations form the roots of the Trust and align well with our Great Wishford vision and values. Within both Great Wishford and the Trust we recognise the importance active and visual leadership, opportunities for all and putting the needs of our staff, pupils and community first.
