Lepton C.E. Primary Academy

Ethos Statement


Our school aims to serve the community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.  We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promote Christian values through the experience we offer to all our pupils.
We aim to give each member of our school community an experience of Christian life and worship.
We will preserve and develop the school’s religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.




We are a small, friendly, family village school with a Christian ethos. Our inclusive character values the excellent relationships between the school, parents and the community in which each child is treated as an individual and is valued. We encourage children to work together valuing relationships they make as lifelong learners. We provide creative first hand learning opportunities that lead to high quality education with children at the centre of all we do.




At Lepton Church of England Primary School, we have a set of 12 Christian Values that shapes our practice of education. The Christian tradition gives our values content and the story of Jesus that gives our values moral substance. 


Our values will be reflected:


Through the leadership and management of our school, and the shared aims and mission statement, and therefore reflected in our ethos
Through staff example and their use of moral language
Through the subjects of the curriculum
Through collective worship
Through learning
Through teaching methods


The values that underpin everything that we do at Lepton are as follows:


Friendship                         Respect                             Honesty


   Kindness                             Trust                           Forgiveness


Happiness                         Compassion                       Empathy
