Our Vision & Ethos

We aim at Great Clacton Church of England Junior School to provide a safe, secure and happy environment where every child is valued for their individuality. Through our shared commitment , enthusiasm and open mindedness, we aim to ensure:

  • that all children in our care have the opportunity to achieve their potential
  • that every child develops respect and an awareness of the needs of others
  • that every child grows to be a caring individual, within a school community that reflects this

We believe that every child has a right to a comprehensive and interesting education related to personal abilities and talents, as well as an education that fulfills a child’s curiosity to gain understanding and wonder of the human place in the world. We believe that children flourish where their views are respected, their abilities recognised and nurtures and their weaknesses understood and supported.

We are proud to be a Church of England school and our church school ethos is central to our foundation.

Our school vision ‘Let your light shine’ Matthew 5:16 underpins all that we do. We believe that every child should flourish and celebrate their uniqueness and potential -letting their light shine in the school community and beyond.

Our school values are:







Though our core Christian values we demonstrate how we treat others and our role and responsibility as positive members of our school family and the wider world.
