At Goring Church of England (VA) Primary School we aim to provide education for the whole community and welcome all families from other denominations and beliefs. Pupils come from the village and surrounding area and from a variety of backgrounds.

By providing a rich, stimulating and happy environment we foster the children’s curiosity and desire to learn. We have high expectations for children of all abilities and involve parents as fully as possible in the life of the school.

Our Aims and Vision are based on our Ethos statement, which is:


I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you,
you will bear much fruit

John 15:5

At our school we strive to be the best that we can be, and to do good in our community and beyond. We cherish our traditional links with the Church, and our Christian values are at the heart of our school life and everything we do. Through our partnerships with other schools, parents, the Church and the community we enjoy a range of educational and social experiences, preparing us for the wider world and enabling us to be successful and giving in our lives ahead.


To fulfil our Ethos, our Aims and Vision are:




Jesus said ‘where two or
three gather in my name,
there am I with them’.

Matthew 18:20

God loved the people of
this world so much that he
gave his only Son, so that
everyone who has faith in
him will have eternal life.

John 3:16

I can do all things
through God who
strengthens me.

Phillippians 4:13


At Goring Church of England Primary School we believe that we all belong to God’s family. We aim to develop confident learners who take ownership of their learning and are proud of their achievements. We believe that every child is entitled to enjoy their childhood. We seek to do this through learning together in a secure, welcoming, happy and healthy environment, where we have high expectations of each other and embrace exciting challenges that inspire and motivate us to achieve in all areas of our lives. Our school community is encouraged to develop a passion for lifelong learning, to contribute to our global society, and to be generous and inclusive in our friendships. Our Christian ethos and our sense of belonging to one community encourage kind, thoughtful and respectful behaviour where everyone’s contribution is valued, and where diversity and what makes us all individuals are celebrated.
