St Anne's

Values & Ethos


St. Anne’s CE Lydgate Primary School

 “All things are possible with God.”

Mark 10:27

Mission Statement: All things are possible with faith, understanding and forgiveness; everyone can flourish together.


Here at St Anne’s we want our children to be independent and resilient but to know that, when things seem overwhelming, there is always a guiding hand available from everyone in our school community. “When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you” (Footprints in the Sand)

Our Vision:

We aim to create successful citizens of the future who have a positive growth mind set and are resilient and prepared for their journey through the ever-changing world in which we live.

We aim to do this by:

  • Teaching the importance of being compassionate and respectful to others and role modelling the Christian Values, whilst at the same time respecting and recognising the value and importance of other faiths and lifestyles.


  • Providing a rich and creative curriculum that inspires a passion for learning and promotes excellence.


  • Collaborating and supporting others to achieve their very best; encompassing our school, our homes, our parish, and the wider community.


  • Providing a nurturing and safe environment where children can be healthy and happy both physically and emotionally.


  • Facilitating investigative learning opportunities through the development of the effective characteristics of learning.


  • Promoting philosophical enquiry to stretch and develop analytical thinking and questioning; creating independent and creative thinkers who are resilient and prepared for all life has to offer.


Golden Values:


Wisdom     Hope      Community       Dignity       Faith      Forgiveness     Resilience   Perseverance


Moral of this story: You’re never ever alone, especially during your most trying times. God is always with you. Even if you can’t be your own best friend as yet, make sure to acknowledge the fact that God is your best friend always!
