Our Church School
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 a dedicated ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) working across all classes. We also have implemented a Nurture provision to support children's wellbeing in school.
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 Christian 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.
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.
