Our Mission Statement reflects the ethos and values of Scorton CE Primary School “A Small School with a Big Outlook”. We are guided by our Christian Faith and the principles taught by Jesus: “Love One another as I have Loved You” . We care for our whole school family and the wider world around us, showing respect and compassion for others through our school values. We know we are very fortunate to live and learn in a beautiful village and we are ambitious for our children. We want them to grow and understand the world around them, to be curious and engage with opportunities to learn.
Jesus said: “Love one another as I have loved you” and this is our guiding principle. We care about each other, our work, ourselves and our community. Our school provides a safe, welcoming environment where children, parents and staff are respected and valued.
