Christian Distinctiveness

Our Ethos

We are a church school family who hold values at the heart of all that we are and do. We aspire to open a gateway through which our children can travel on their life's journey full of confidence, compassion and courage. We seek to understand our place in the world and the change we cna be, through living our Christian value in our daily lives with joy and hope.

We desire that all who journey with us will enjoy life to the full. We want our children to be curious, enthusiastic challenge-seekers who are empowered to direct their learning. We believe our children flourish by engaging with all that we offer - there are no walls to learning. Our curriculum is rooted in skills that children will need throughout their lives, whatever their future may hold.

We have a gate in our school logo because the word Hatch, in Hatch Beauchamp derives from a 12th century English word meaning gate. Jesus said, "I am the gate. The person who enters through me will be saved. He will be able to come in and go out and find pasture...I came to give life - life in all it's fullness." (John 10: 9-10). It is, therefore, only natural for us as a church school to celebrate these verses from the Bible.

Our six core value are: Acceptance, Integrity, Perseverance, Courage, Respect and Responsibility.

Our Christian vision in the framework around which we build our "house".


It provides the structure for how we model our lives, talk to each other and build our relationships. Our values lie at the heart of everything we do.







We seek to serve our community through visiting the elderly people at a residential home, fund-raising and supporting a wide range of charities and hosting coffee mornings and breakfasts.

We encourage our children to develop spirituality, through reflection, discussion and prayer. They take active roles in planning and leading worship both in school and within the wider community.
