Our Church School
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms."
1 Peter 4:10
Our school provides a Christian and inclusive education for our children, who are supported to achieve their own potential. Their good progress in both social and academic skills prepares them for a fulfilling future.
We are mindful of children’s emotional development and self-esteem and have recently engaged with Stormbreak to support and improve children’s mental health through movement, equipping them with sustainable, transferable skills and coping strategies to thrive during the complex demands of growth into adult life. This is led by class teachers at points during the day to equip children with skills at the moment of need in a safe and supportive classroom environment. The improvement of mental health is for everyone.
In addition to good quality teaching and collective worship, the children have many opportunities for enrichment, providing them with the skills they need in order to develop as life-long learners.

Our Collective Worship Values
In September 2015, our school adopted the Christian Values of the Roots and Fruits collective worship scheme. These values underpin not only our collective worship, linked to the festivals and seasons of the church calendar, but enrich our whole school ethos.
Our school values of:
Courage Community Perseverance Belief
Work alongside the values listed and detailed below.
Every half-term we focus on a different value over a two year cycle. Click on the links below to find out more.
During Collective Worship, these values provide opportunities for spiritual growth and development in our children and adults, demonstrated through the teachings of Jesus, other stories and anecdotes from children and adults.
Children who have demonstrated their understanding of these values through their learning and behaviour are rewarded in our weekly Celebration Collective Worship. When discussing whether starting to focus on a new value meant forgetting about the previous ones, a child responded, “No, of course not! We can’t learn about everything at the same time. We need to build on what we have already learnt.”
The Christian character of our school positively contributes to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children by providing opportunities for them to learn about other people’s faiths, feelings and values during Collective Worship, reflection times, RE lessons and extra-curricular activities.
