We aim to create a foundation of learning and self-confidence in every child by providing a welcoming, happy and supportive environment in which Christian values are central to the ethos of the School. It is through these values that we encourage concern and care for all members of the School community and beyond. We aim to build links between the School, the family, the parishes and local community and to encourage respect for the countryside and environment in which Englefield School is situated. In providing an awareness of, and experience in, the Christian faith we aim to cultivate the foundations of mutual respect and responsibility and promote equality of opportunity.
Love is at the centre of all we do at Englefield and this is reflected in our values:
