Visions and Values

Our vision at Dersingham VA Primary School is to be a dynamic community of care, respect and trust, built on Christian values, in which everyone is encouraged, challenged and inspired.

To promote this vision we have defined our school’s core Christian values which underpin the day to day life at Dersingham;



Values are principles that drive behaviour and apply equally to every member of Dersingham’s community – children, staff, parents, visitors and governors. As well as teaching them through collective worship and general school life we also expect every adult to model the school values.  For example, we expect every adult to demonstrate respect for children and other adults in the same way we would expect children to show respect to each other and to all adults. By making them explicit we are inviting parents to support us in demonstrating these values when working with the school to ensure every child – and adult - receives a really positive school experience.


We believe that teaching and modelling the school values will support children to develop the positive attitudes and behaviour required for each of them to fulfil their true potential, emotionally, physically, spiritually and intellectually, both during their time at school and in their life ahead.


As part of our values-led approach, we have developed a reward system to promote our strength of heart, mind and community.
