Christian Distinctiveness

Mission Statement

Children’s Version

With God we learn to love and love to learn. 

Christian Vision

Thurnham School is a caring Christian community where everybody is valued and encouraged to flourish within a questioning, collaborative, creative and loving environment. This is rooted in Jesus’ teaching and acceptance of all, for example in the parable of ‘The Lost Sheep’.

Our Core Christian Value

Thurnham is a Church of England school and strong Christian ethos are an integral part of the ‘fabric’ of the school. Within the year we concentrate on a core Christian value of ‘Love’ not only explicitly such as in worship, but also bringing it in subtly into other lessons and activities such as ‘Love’ for their environment or through activities such as being Health and Safety representatives.

This value is taught and shared in everything we do in school.
