Vision and Values

At Etchingham, in the context of Christian values and beliefs, we want all our pupils to :  

learn to love learning

be motivated and enthusiastic

be risk takers and embrace challenge

be good citizens of our school and community

be equipped to become responsible members of  a 21st Century  society

be the best they can be


Our School Mural, completed in 2012, reflects the aims and values agreed by all communities and expressed by the pupils in statements based on the Golden Rules which form the basis of day to day Behaviour for Learning in the School:

We learn and share what we know.

We are kind and helpful; our school is a happy and safe place to learn.

We are honest. We try to show Jesus’ love in all we do

We work hard.

We persevere when things are tough.

We all learn in our own way.

We are all smart in different ways.


The support of parents gives Etchingham School a strong family atmosphere where home and school work in partnership for the benefit of the children to ensure that we provide them with the best possible education and enable them to “be the best that they can be”.  

The family atmosphere is underpinned by the rigorous planning and tracking of pupil progress so that nothing is left to chance as pupils pass through our hands. We believe that they have ‘one chance’ at school and are entitled to be happy and become effective learners, equipped to live in a changing world with its challenges and uncertainties.

Parents are welcome to discuss their child’s progress anytime by appointment, in addition to the formal opportunities for parents to meet with staff throughout the year.
