Christian Character

Unlocking every child's ability to achieve through faith and inspired learning

Our Christian Character

Anglican beliefs about the nature of God and the life, teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as the power of the Holy Spirit at work in us, have impact on all aspects of school life.

As a Church of England Primary School, Christian values underpin our ethos, our learning and our day to day school life.

All members of the school community (pupils, parents, governors and staff) were involved in the selection of our five Christian values:

Love        Friendship        Truth        Hope        Kindness

 Each value is linked to a Bible verse and story that demonstrates that particular value.  In term 1, the whole school will be focusing on developing our understanding of the Christian value of love.

Reflection Areas

Each class has a cross and a Christian reflection area which are added to and changed regularly.  They provide opportunities and space for children to think more deeply about aspects of worship, their personal faith, and their relationships with God, each other and the wider world.

We also have two whole school community reflection areas in the main office building and by the hall.  These areas have different Bible verses and themes to engage the children and adults.  Visitors are encouraged to use and contribute to our reflection area near the office.

This year we will be developing a reflection garden to provide an alternative reflection experience, linking nature and the world around us to our spiritual and religious lives.
