Teversham CE VA Primary School

Inspire Believe Achieve

Church School Vision and Ethos

"We love because God first loved us," 1 John 4 verse 19.


Inspired by God’s love for us,

we seek to be

a loving, serving, learning community

in which our belief that

all people should be valued

for who they are in God’s image

creates a culture where

all can explore, discover, flourish

and therefore achieve their best.


We are very proud of our distinctive Christian ethos and the exceptionally supportive, family atmosphere that enables each member of our community to flourish and achieve their best.  Our aim is to show God's love through how we live in community together, rooted in Christian values, which include our 6 core values of forgiveness, hope, courage, truthfulness, thankfulness and perseverance with love being the thread that is central to all.


"A distinctively Christian family atmosphere permeates this small school. All members of the community articulate this, clearly believing that Christian values, embraced in the school motto “Inspire, Believe, Achieve”, impact greatly on the pupils’ excellent behaviour, achievement and enjoyment." SIAMS November 2016

Recognising its historic foundation, Teversham Church of England primary school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the church at parish and diocesan level.
The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experiences it offers to all its pupils.

Partnership with Local Churches


At Teversham Church of England Primary School, we are delighted to be able to work closely with groups within our community and are constantly striving to develop our links further.

We treasure the times we spend in the Parish Church. These include our special Encounter Days, for different Christian festivals during the year, and our special Harvest, Christmas and Easter, and end of term services to which parents and community are invited. The church uses our school hall for different events and we are looking for more ways that we can work together. Rev Alun Ford leads Collective Worship for us in school regularly.


Hope Community Church meets in our school hall every Sunday morning and members of the church regularly lead Collective Worship in school. They run a Bible Club for us weekly and members support the school in a wide variety of ways, including hearing children read.


We are always pleased to accept offers of help from members of the local churches and to explore ideas of how we can further develop our ways of working together.



This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The school operates a stringent Child Protection policy, in line with Cambridgeshire Area Child Protection guidelines. All volunteers will be subject to a clear DBS check and will be required to provide references.
