Church of England Primary School

"Learning to love God, one another and ourselves"

  • Who we are:

    We are a one-form entry Primary School taking pupils from the age of 4 years to 11 years of age, Reception to Year 6.

    Our children enjoy school and look forward to being here, the atmosphere and ethos are very supportive and pupils are mutually supportive of one another. Self-confidence is nurtured. The school is welcoming to all, and treats all involved as equals. In all that we do, love, care and respect pervade the establishment.

    Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) Report:

    'The quality of relationships and the exemplary behaviour of pupils can be attributed to the Christian distinctiveness of the school.'

    'The Christian vision and values promoted by leaders develop a sense of self-worth and love and compassion for others throughout the school community.'

    We regularly hold class sharing assemblies, this involves the children sharing their work with the school, parents, and often grandparents too. We also organise Christmas and end of year productions which involve the whole school.

    A statement of our Christian ethos:

    'Learning to love God, one another and ourselves'

    When people asked Jesus what were the most important things we should do he replied:

    ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength [and] You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ (Mark 12:30-31)

    Our statement puts this central element of Christian behaviour at the heart of the life of the school.
