Our Heartwood Values

Learn to Love - Love to Learn!

Our Vision


We aim to provide a safe, nurturing environment and a rich variety of experiences so that all pupils are able to flourish and discover their unique strengths and talents. Our mission is to enable every child to enjoy a life filled with meaning and purpose, underpinned by Christian values, a love of learning and an eagerness to make the world a better place.

"Live life in all its fullness" (John 10:10)

Our vision is based on Jesus' two greatest commandments, love God and love one another. The parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) guides our school family to extend love, compassion and respect to all God's people.

Our Values


We aim to achieve this through our key values  
Friendship - We are loving and kind. We know how to learn and play together.
Compassion - We understand our own and others feelings. We care for ourselves and for others. We forgive each other when we make mistakes.
Respect - We value ourselves and  others. We delight in our differences. 
Service - We look for ways to help others.
Responsibility - We make good choices for ourselves, our community and our environment.
Courage - We feel confident enough to challenge ourselves, take risks and make mistakes. We stand up for what is right.


The Christian ethos is important to our school and as such we maintain close links with the Diocese of Norwich and St Peter and St Paul Church in Swaffham. We promote Christian values in our school through the experiences we offer our pupils and develop their understanding of Christianity. We also explore other faiths and cultures so that differences are valued and equality assured.
