Our Vision Statement

The vision we share at Silchester is one in which every child is nurtured and valued.  Our core Christian values of Compassion, Courage and Respect surmise our ethos and ensure that the well-being of children remains the heart of our school.

We embrace individuality and foster a sense of belonging within our community.

It is our aim that every child leaves our school inspired to continue their own learning, and enriched by lasting memories of positive relationships, engaging experiences, and a moral and spiritual foundation for life.

Our Christian Values


We believe in the importance of compassion; for ourselves, for others and for God’s world.  Self-compassion creates awareness and empowers self-belief.  Compassion for other fuels empathy, understanding and a desire to extend love within our community.  Compassion for God’s world inspires openness, courageous advocacy, positive change and a desire to make a difference.

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”  -  Ephesians 4:32 


We believe that courage is required to enable us to stand up for what is right, to take risks in the pursuit of living and to value mistakes as tools for earning and growth.  Stepping outside our comfort zones, taking leaps of faith and living out truth takes gumption and inspires us to succeed and achieve from both challenge and opportunity.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." - Joshua 1:9


We believe that respect should be awarded to everyone inclusively.  Difference and disagreements are both welcome and respected.  The way in which we communicate and uphold ourselves is a direct representation of our respect for ourselves, for others and for God’s world.

"Therefore, you should treat people in the same way that you want people to treat you.”  - Matthew 7:12
