Ethos and Values

Everything we do in our school is driven by our values – those that have been determined by our community as representative of our Church of England School, as well as those that have been identified as quintessentially British by our government – tolerance, democracy, and the rule of law.


We believe everyone is precious in the sight of God and we value the individual gifts brought by each and every member of our community. At Shinfield, we include the following as our most important values, the greatest of which is love: creativity and collaboration, hope and honesty, inclusion and individuality, love and loyalty, determination, respect, enjoyment and nurture. The initial letters of our values spell out the word ‘CHILDREN’ – and this is what we’re about – developing happy, well-educated and well-rounded young people, able to cope with the challenges of life in the global economy in the years to come.


‘As I have loved you, so you must love one another.’ John 13, 34
