Our School Vision & Values

West Dean CE Primary School: the small school with a big heart

Our Vision: to do our best in all we do, with God’s love. ‘Love one another. As I have loved you, so must you love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.’ John 13:24-25

 Through our Vision we:

  • create a secure and nurturing Christian environment which values, nurtures and respects every individual
  • equip children, through an exciting, ambitious and innovative curriculum, with confidence, and life skills to achieve excellence
  • partner with home, church and the local community to help children make a positive contribution to God’s world

 At West Dean CE Primary School we help each other to do our best in everything, through our Christian values of Love, Peace, Joy, Hope and Faith, which are central to all aspects of our school life. When they leave our school, children are prepared for life, with resilience, compassion and a love of learning.
