Our Vision

‘I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness.’

John 10v10b

At Heworth CE Primary School…

– we support each child to flourish academically, spiritually and culturally.
– we inspire, nurture and develop highly motivated, independent young people.
– our children are compassionate, courageous, respectful and persevere in all they do.

‘I praise you because I am wonderfully made.’

Psalm 139v14a

Our Values

Our four core Christian values of Courage, Perseverance, Respect and Compassion are woven through the life of the school, and we use them to help create a rich learning environment for all of our pupils, whatever their needs.

The Archbishop’s Prayer
In September 2023, the Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell, wrote a new school prayer to commemorate the change to our vision and values. We use this prayer at times in our Collective Worship.

Faithful God,

We thank you that we are wonderfully made.

Help us to use our gifts and talents to live in such a way that all people may flourish and have life in fullness.

May we treat each other with respect, remembering that we are all created in your image;

may we be compassionate, following the example of Christ;

may we be courageous, holding firm to our faith;

and may we persevere always, trusting in you for strength;

in Jesus name,
