Christian Faith

The grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people.

Titus 2:11


We are very proud of our Christian ethos, which leads us in everything we do.

Our core Christian values are to love and to serve and these, together with other Christian values, drive our curriculum and are embedded within every aspect of school life.

Collective Worship

All children attend daily acts of collective worship. Our aims are:

• To encourage the children to appreciate and experience the Christian ethics of care, love, peace, respect and tolerance within the community, having regard to the beliefs and practices of the Church of England.

• To acknowledge and build a special relationship between the school and the parish church.

• To appreciate the importance of other religious faiths.

Collective Worship is organised on a whole school basis, and is led by staff, visitors and the pupils themselves. We foster close links with our parish church by having services each term, and by inviting clergy of other denominations into school on a regular basis to lead worship.

The spiritual, social, cultural and moral welfare of our pupils, whatever their background, is of prime concern to us as a school. However, Christian values are definitely built into our ethos and teaching, and are reflected in the cycle of themes on which our daily acts of worship are based.

Parents do have the right to withdraw their children on religious grounds from acts of collective worship, but members of staff feel that pupils who are excluded would miss part of the corporate life of the school. If any parents wish to exercise their right, they are asked to discuss this matter with the Headteacher, and alternative arrangements will be made.

Biblical References

Love your neighbour as yourself.”
