At Little Dewchurch Cof E Primary School, our vision is to create a school family where all children and staff become the very best they can be within the context of Chirstian belief, practise and values.
A GUIDING HAND
Our key piece of scripture that helps to guide and shape the life and work of our school family is taken from Isaiah 41:10
I am with you; I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
This piece of scripture has been deliberately chosen to have meaning for our school family as this passage of the bible tells a message of love and hope for a brighter, happier future.
