Hertford St Andrew CE Primary School

Love Learning. Aim High. Trust God.

Visions and Values

Love Learning. Aim High. Trust God.


Our vision is at the core of everything we do. 


Hertford St Andrew is a place where we can learn to love God, one another and ourselves.


This is achieved through collective worship, Religious Education and the application of Christian values within and beyond the school.


Our vision


Love Learning - be life long learners who embrace all opportunities to grow in mind, body and spirit.

Aim High - be your best, keep trying, never give up and be true to our values.

Trust God - be safe in the knowledge that God is a trusted friend who is always there for us.


Our guiding verse


"Let your light shine."
Matthew 5:16


We have chosen these words from the Gospel of Matthew to be our guide and inspiration in all we do. These are words of instruction - a call to all those listening to be a light in the darkness. We teach our children how they can recognise the unique talents and abilities within themselves and use them to do good in the world. This gives our school a strong moral purpose and identity as we prepare children to go and be a light to people.


As well as learning about Christian values, we also teach pupils to understand the role of British values in creating a fair and inclusive society. These values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and respect and tolerance of those with different faiths are taught overtly through our curriculum and across all aspects of school life.
