Our Values

At East Claydon we all subscribe to the core Christian values of:

  • Love
  • Commitment
  • Respect

They underpin everything we do as a community and define how we build our relationships across the school.

We value the importance of LOVE and laughter in our day-to-day lives. We will do our best to love ourselves and from this we can reach outward to love our family, friends and our community. We cannot succeed by ourselves. We will be kind and considerate to those around us and around the world – developing empathy and compassion so that we are always contributing to our community and empowering those around us. 

Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. [Corinthians 13:7]


We know that fulfilling our goals requires passion and COMMITMENT– to our dreams, to ourselves and to each other. We enjoy persevering with new challenges and will not give up when the going gets tough. We build emotional resilience by embracing failure and using it as a powerful driver for learning. 

And endurance produces character, and character produces hope. [Romans 5:4 ]


We treat each other with RESPECT and integrity, developing strong relationships built on mutual trust and honesty. We will support each other as we collaborate on new challenges and move forwards as a strong team. Together we can achieve anything! 

Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. [ John 13:34 ]
