Our Family Tree

Every member of our school has a photograph of themselves on the school family tree. This means that we all work together as one community.

Our Distinct Christian Values 

These are our school Distinct Christian Values.

We have a two year rolling program of values and we focus on a new value each term.

Services in Church

We  have a strong relationship with the local church and are able to use the building for  many activities as well as regular whole school Christian worship.

We have end of term services in Church as well as a special service for the Y6 leavers in July.

We hold our Christmas concerts in the Church using our own stage and lighting.

We use the church for special festival services  such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter.

We have been invited to the village Carol  service and Christingle as well as participating in a Special Community Service organised by the Local County Council Chair Person.

We also join with Womens' World Day of Prayer.

Festivals and Special Services

Festivals are special times to come together.

Christmas concerts are very important as they are the centre of what a church school is all about; developing the Christian ethos and belief. They are well supported and very inspiring.

Another local school joined us for  Experience Harvest in Church.

We have  held Experience Easter in and around School and the Church. This was a  wonderful passion play enacted by local parishioners.
