At Wateringbury Church of England Primary School, we believe in the value of a happy, Christian community in which all of us recognise the part each plays for the greater good of the school.  We encourage others by praise and acknowledgement of effort and create an environment in which everyone can develop talents and expertise. We believe in a community built upon our Christian values of love, compassion, forgiveness, peace, justice and wisdom.  Through daily observance of these, we create an atmosphere of care and respect for every individual and a tolerance of opinions and differences.

Volunteerism has always been an important part of Wateringbury school life.  Over the last year, the number of parents and community members involved in curricular support has quadrupled from 5 volunteers in school on a regular basis in 2012 to our current number of 20.  Highly skilled parents and community members (professional dancer, gardener, seamstress, artist, retired educationalists) work alongside teachers to improve and enhance the quality of our provision.
