Mission Statement - Values and Ethos


Mission Statement:

Education at Canon Burrows is based on the premise that each person is made in the image of God and is special, precious and unique. Each person has the right to develop morally, spiritually, academically and physically to his or her full potential and will do so, given the right educational context.

Vision and Ethos:

Our vision is of a just and harmonious society where Canon Burrows school community achieve the highest in everything we do, but we also remember those other standards; the care, respect and help shown to others, the generosity of spirit, compassion and forgiveness.


At Canon Burrows, our 18 Christian values underpin everything we do. These values are taught explicitly throughout the children's time in school as well as through Collective Worship and reflection spaces in school. We also promote values intrinsically as opportunities arise: when a certain value is pertinent to an individual or group of children or is pertinent to local, national or global issues, for example a response of stewardship to a national disaster. Find out more about our values here.


The mural on our school corridor illustrates each of our values and was designed by children across school.

When children across school display their Christian values, they receive a 'value voucher'. Each week 'value vouchers' are selected at random to receive a celebratory reward.

Friday News also shows the Christian value we have shown across school each week. You can find this in the 'News' section of our website.
