Why Dove Holes Primary 

What we value as a church school

When Jesus spoke the words: ‘I have come to bring life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10) to his disciples; he had a vision for them that went beyond what they could see at that moment in time.

At Dove Holes C of E  Primary School, we have that vision for all of our children. We want every lesson, every experience and every day in our school, to expose our children to an education without limits – full of the joy and abundance of life.

Our vision extends beyond the school gates, where we hope to see our community touched by the values lived by our pupils. We believe that in walking through life together we can flourish together, creating the best opportunities and outcomes for all.


This vision underpins everything that we do at our school. We believe that our Christian distinctiveness enhances our care and aspiration for every individual child, drives our goals for success and enables us to teach our children how to live well. We live out this vision through our school values:

Value: Love

What we say 'mantra':

“ Don’t forget to let the love in”

Our purpose:

We want our children to learn how important, valued, and loved we are. Because God said 'you’re one in a million, you have value, dignity and purpose”. John 3:16
