MISSION, ETHOS & VALUES
Our mission at Basildon is to prepare children for God’s world. Our values are Excellence, Respect and Resilience, based on Philippians 4.13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
These are the values that are articulated by the whole community. We strive for academic excellence while fostering a nurturing, supportive Christian culture to ensure every child thrives and achieves their full potential.
Basildon has had a primary school for 140 years, so we have a long and proud history of serving this community. Our efforts today will be helping to build a better future. We are always looking for ways to develop our curriculum and resources to provide the education our children deserve with the skills they will need for life in the 21st century.
Whilst working hard to allow all children to achieve their academic potential, we know that real happiness and success cannot be found without well-developed social skills and good emotional health. We also believe that our Christian foundation gives us a structure within which to develop our spiritual awareness. This is reflected in our strong relationship with the local parish church of St Stephen.
We promote British Values at Basildon CE Primary School.
