We are a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School. 'We really care and make learning fun' permeates through all we do. In our work with each and every child, the value of care and love guides all our actions to do the very best for each individual. The school places much emphasis on showing this value to others in our relationship with the community and charities. Our passion to make learning fun centres around creating a sense of joy in our learning. We are keen to celebrate God's gifts in children's talents. We aim to enable all pupils to develop their skills and abilities with enjoyment and fun.
Our daily assembly/worship is an important gathering each day in order to be together and reflect on our values:
- living together
- an awe for creation
- honesty and truth
Christian teachings are regularly referred to in our worship and also include visitors from a number of churches and the ‘Open the Book’ program where Bible stories are enacted on a weekly basis. However we also deliver worship in a very multi-faith or no-faith way in order to develop a respect and empathy for all our views. We follow the LEA approved scheme for RE (please see our curriculum maps for further information). There are many links between these and our daily worship.
If any parent has concerns about their child taking part in morning worship, they are welcome to come to school to discuss it. Parents may withdraw their children if they wish.
