Let Your Light Shine

At Stoke St. Gregory Church of England Primary School we endeavour to provide good foundations for all children so that they may flourish in all that they do.

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

(Matthew 5:14-16)


 God loves us and we should love ourselves, friends, family and neighbours. We should be encouraged to take care of people and be loving in what we say and what we do. We believe love is about trust, respect, sharing and creating a bond. We should understand and respect differences.


God made the world to be a place of beauty and wonder. We encourage each other to be curious, confident and prepared to explore the world. We should be encouraged to dream and have aspirations.


Gratitude is a positive response to God’s goodness and grace. We encourage each other to be thankful and recognise the efforts of others. We believe in cultivating gratitude in each other so we can be more joyful in ourselves and with others.


God gives us eternal hope. Hope is about resilience, perseverance and optimism. We believe that hope comes from faith and belief. We support each other to have the confidence and belief ourselves themselves to follow our dreams and shine even when life is challenging.


 We believe togetherness is promoting a strong sense of community. It is important in our school, the village and the church that everyone is working together. We are encouraged to help others and be thoughtful. We promote inclusivity, empathy and the understanding of the role we play in the world around us.
