Essendon C of E (VC) Primary School

Caring and Learning Together



At Essendon C of E (VC) Primary School, we value:


  • the ethos of the school based on key Christian values which make it the inclusive, tolerant, welcoming and caring place it is;

  • the individuality of each child within the school community;

  • the close relationship with our Church and local community;

  • the right of every child (irrespective of ability, gender, race, culture, religion, Special Educational Needs and disability or social circumstances ) to the best quality education within a safe, secure and supportive learning environment; and

  • the importance of teaching children to become resilient, independent, responsible and caring citizens in the 21st century.
