Our Values and School Prayer

Our School Vision


At Shustoke C of E Primary School we aim to begin with the child, encouraging and supporting each individual to become a positive member of the community through childhood and into adult life. We seek to ensure all children enjoy their school experience, developing their confidence, self esteem, gifts and talents through a stimulating curriculum in which they initiate learning as active partners, and rise to challenges giving of their best.


We endeavour to prepare the children for the next stage in their education and to make a positive contribution to our rapidly changing world. We believe that all children have the potential to learn, develop academically, socially, morally, spiritually and culturally caring about others and the world in which we live. We work in partnership and welcome all parents, governors, the church and the community in the life of the school, providing education of the highest quality within the context of the Christian belief and practice.

Our School Prayer


Dear Lord,


We pray for our school and the chances to make new discoveries every day.


We pray for our friends and families and all the people with whom we share our learning.


Help us to be grateful for all that we have, and to care about those who have less than us.


Help us to challenge prejudice, treating everyone equally and with respect.


When someone hurts or misunderstands us, help us to forgive one another as you have forgiven us.


Help us to care for our world and all the beautiful nature we see, so everyone can enjoy God’s creation.


Thank you for all you have done and given for us.



Our Collective Worship Policy


Hello everyone smiley

I wanted to share with you a lovely book that has been created by Katherine Rundell, a children's author. It is called The Book of Hopes and is filled with short stories, poems and illustrations by famous children's authors. I thought you might enjoy reading some of them together and thinking about the message of hope that they send. 

I have shared my favourite one - The Hope-o-potamus - below. 

I recently noticed the beautiful yellow daffodils on our school field. We planted them together a few years ago and have talked about them being a sign of hope in our assemblies. 

I wonder what hope means to you? You might like to draw a picture or create your own story or poem to share. I'd love to see them if you do. You can email them to school. 

Have a lovely day.
