Vision & Values

Long Crendon School Vision & Values  

The Place to Grow

Long Crendon is a dynamic, vibrant and creative school. We are passionate about supporting children to develop as unique individuals.

Our 8 core values are the beating heart of our school and our children learn how to live by them: Unity, Courage, Resilience, Kindness, Enthusiasm, Honesty, Respect and Equality.

Through our Values-based Education (VbE), children develop emotional and, later, ethical intelligence which enables them to nurture their own well-being and contribute to that of others. Children build a sense of responsibility for their behaviour and actions. We teach and encourage children to be kind, empathetic and reflective. 

Our children learn to respect themselves, their communities and the world around them. We are an Eco School and have a strong emphasis on outdoor learning, including Forest School. We look to care for the whole child, promote healthy eating and have an active sports programme.

In addition to our high-quality academic education, which promotes a love of learning, we maintain a broad education across the School and our children embrace a wide range of activities including music, art and drama.

We nurture our school family. Pupils work collaboratively with their peers through group work, Houses, clubs and sports. Our children are encouraged to challenge themselves, including through leadership opportunities. 

Our pupils are well prepared with the skills they will need for their next school.  Their life at Long Crendon cultivates aspirations for a life that has meaning and purpose.
