Vision Statement

Every Child, Every Day: to learn, to love, to laugh, to pray.

Bishops Cannings School is a loving, caring Christian community where, with God's guidance, every child is encouraged to flourish and we all aspire to become our very best.

The heartbeat of our school is knowing that God loves each and every one of us and we, in turn, show love to one another and our neighbours. We all work hard to nurture the spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual growth of every child so that we may each play our parts in looking after and loving ourselves, others and the world that God has generously given to us.

All our work at Bishops Cannings Primary is rooted in our strong Christian tradition. We take guidance from God's word and in particular, the extract from Colossians 3:12 – 14:

God has chosen you and made you his holy people. He loves you. So your new life should be like this: Show mercy to others. Be kind, humble, gentle, and patient. Don’t be angry with each other, but forgive each other. If you feel someone has wronged you, forgive them. Forgive others because the Lord forgave you. Together with these things, the most important part of your new life is to love each other. Love is what holds everything together in perfect unity.

Love is what holds everything together in perfect unity.

Our Spirituality Statement

Spirituality Statement

Here at Bishops Cannings, spirituality is a journey where we explore who we are, our relationships with one another, our community, the world around us and the divine.  It is a continuous, transformative process of asking the big questions, readjusting perspectives and rarely finding a definitive answer.  Our spiritual community at Bishops Cannings ensures we have created a special place, with space for encounter and reflection, and where our own unique relationships with God are valued.  

We live and learn by our Christian values believing that

‘Love is what holds everything together in perfect unity’. 

There can be no Kingdom of God in the world,  without the Kingdom of God in our hearts. Albert Schweitzer (Theologian)
