As a learning community that involves the children, our families and our staff we aim to INSPIRE.

At Shaftesbury CE Primary School, INSPIRE, means that we:


are Independent, Never give up, Shine, Participate positively, celebrate Individuality, Reach for the stars, Explore and excite.


Our approach is understood by all and underpinned by our Christian values of:


Koinonia, Courage, Creation, Respect and Friendship.


We actively develop the Growth Mindset across the learning community and see all children and adults as learners together. We work as a team to help everyone be the best that they can be.

We are also proud to belong to the Sherborne Areas Schools Trust (SAST) that comprises of several schools in the local area.
