As a Church of England primary school we aim to preserve and develop the religious character of the school in accordance with the church. The school aims to serve its community by providing education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the
experience it offers all its pupils. As such -
Pupils need to engage each day in a meaningful real act of collective worship
Religious education is consistent with the faith and practice of the church
As a school we observe the major Christian festivals
We develop an active and affirming relationship with the parish church
We make appropriate use of Christian symbols inside / outside the school
‘And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him’ (Romans 8:28)
As a school we want to develop the whole child which means their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We can do this by:
• providing teaching opportunities to learn about themselves, others and the world around them, including the intangible
• appreciating and taking into account other people’s preferences
• enabling children to use their creativity and imagination in their learning
• supporting children to reflect on their experiences
To live and work together as a caring Christian community which fosters a love of life-long learning.
To ensure children value themselves as unique individuals, celebrating diversity and respecting difference.
To teach resilience and provide opportunities to develop skills for life and positive relationships.
To encourage an inquisitive, reflective approach to learning.
