Mission Statement

Hippings Methodist Primary School endeavours to provide the best possible all-round education in a Christian setting. The school acknowledges and values its foundation by the Methodist Church, continuing links with the local Methodist community and the principles which form the basis of Methodism.

Children are encouraged to develop a mature and positive attitude to themselves, to their relationships with others and to the life of the school in general. Good standards of behaviour and respect for others are expected and we hope to foster the social skills and moral awareness that will enable the children to become well-balanced individuals who will enjoy all aspects of life.

The school endeavours to develop in its pupils a sympathetic understanding of Christianity and to provide an opportunity to search for a faith by which to live. We aim to ensure that the curriculum provides a Christian setting in which children can grow in understanding and develop appropriate skills, attitudes and values.

The school believes that this should take place in an attractive, safe and friendly environment, distinguished by the quality of mutual care between all its members.
