What is a church school?

Happy Pupil and Teacher in an IT lesson.

As a church school, we are closely aligned with the Church of England Vision for Education. At the heart of this vision is Jesus’s promise of ‘life in all its fullness.’ It is a vision for the common good of the whole school community, one in which all may flourish. It involves:

Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.

Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.

Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.

Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.

We are an inclusive school that welcomes all children.
