Our Distinctively Christian Vision and Values


"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit – fruit that will last"

John 15 verse 16

We are Offenham CE First School, and it is our desire to provide abundant opportunity for every member of our school community to thrive and flourish and to be the best they can be in the light of their unique God-given potential. We seek to provide an excellent education that considers the needs and aspirations of all.

Our School Vision

We are growing together as a loving school community where everyone is committed to the ongoing pursuit of excellence – a place where, through the joy and hope of the resurrection, there is transformation, growth and progress in children’s social, moral, spiritual, cultural and academic lives.

Our school motto

"Growing deep roots. Producing good fruit"

Our Values

Roots - Friendship, Perseverance, Respect, Responsibility and Truth.
Fruits - Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control.

Our Root and fruits can be seen in action across our school life together. We desire for all of our children to develop deep roots so that they are resilient, able to flourish and grow and to produce abundant fruit in their own lives and to serve the common good.

Galatians 5:22 refers to the fruits as the visible signs of growth and transformation.
