The school caters for children from 3 through to 16 years of age. Small numbers in classes mean that every child receives a high level of attention and individual encouragement to do their best.
Their ethos encourages a real sense of community and the family nature of the school means that children can be themselves in a safe and accepting environment where pupils and staff work together.
Their overall aim is to provide a Christ centred education that enables children and young people to become confident, creative, aware and responsible members of their communities.This crucial work is shared between the school, the parents and, of course, with the young person themselves.
The school agrees with the Department for Education’s definition of British values  as a whole:
- the rule of law,
- individual liberty
- mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
At the Christian School (Takeley), pupils will encounter these principles throughout everyday school life. The school recognises the dependence of each value on the others and, for example, does not respect or tolerate a faith statement or belief that does not uphold the democracy and rule of law of the United Kingdom (UK) or the individual liberties of UK citizens, especially those whose characteristics are protected under the Equality Act.
The curriculum teaches pupils to be critical thinkers testing the validity of rules or expectations.
In accordance with the ethos of the school the understanding is that, in God, there is a higher authority and the teaching of the whole Christian Bible is the basis of faith of the staff.
The school is an equal opportunities employer. As a designated faith school, the school is allowed to take into consideration a teacher's faith before employing them as allowed in the Equality Act 2010, Schedule 22 paragraph 4.
The school is part of the Christian Schools' Trust 
The Christian School (Takeley) was founded by a group of parents and friends in 1989 to provide a Christian education, fostering Christian faith and values. Today the school includes families from a wide geographical area, who belong to a number of different churches or none.
