School values & goals

Making Xmas decorations

Everything we do at Soho Parish is driven by our five values, which have been developed in consultation with children, staff, governors and parents. As an Anglican school, our values have their roots in the Christian faith and are outlined below.



We dare to dream.

The Christian faith teaches that “with God nothing is impossible” and Jesus encouraged his disciples to step out in faith and live “life in all its fullness”. It was this belief which inspired members of St Anne’s Church in 1699 to try and start a school for the ‘poor children’ of Soho so that they would have  the opportunity to have better futures than if they could not read or write. 


We believe that there are no limits to our potential.

Writing in Psalm 139 King David wrote “I thank you O God, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made”. David wasn’t bragging – he just recognised that God makes all people to be awesome and capable of amazing things. 


We listen to and value everyone’s views. 

We treat everyone as we would like to be treated.

Jesus said “treat others as you would like them to treat you” it’s the Golden Rule and is common to many world faiths. 


We recognise we are all unique with individual needs.

Fundamental to the Jewish- Christian tradition is that though we are all different each one of us is“made in the image of God”- this means that everyone is precious, special and to be valued.


We are a warm and welcoming community

The Christian service of baptism recognises that we are all  ‘children of one Heavenly Father’. Jesus teaches us to think of others as our brothers and sisters and especially to welcome those who are different or unloved by others.

Values such as respect also fit with our wider promotion of fundamental British values, which we do in a variety of ways such as learning about the rule of law and participating in democracy. Click here for more information.


In addition, our governing body sets strategic goals. Our goals for this academic year are as follows (click on picture for larger image):
