Costock C of E Primary School Values & Vision Statement

Every Child’s a Star!

"As God's children we shine like Stars" Philippians 2 v.15

Every day at Costock Church School we are experiencing and learning; Service to God, each other and ourselves, Truth, Agape and Respect. As we leave each day we take these Christian Values with us.



* To provide a happy, secure and caring environment in which all individuals feel valued. 

* To inspire each child with Christian values and encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith. 

* To embrace, understand and respect the differences between gender, races and cultures.

Our learning aims are:
