Christian values underpin all school life. Within the ethos of its Christian foundation, our school seeks to foster the full potential of every child by:
- Promoting the pupils’ spiritual and moral development
- Engendering a feeling of self-worth
- Valuing high standards of teaching and learning
- Creating a safe and happy environment for learning
- Fostering a respect for others and for the world about them
- Creating a partnership with parents and families
- Playing a role within the village and wider community.
Children and staff participate in a daily act of collective worship. Regular visits from Rev. Peter, Rev. Alex, as well as other local clergy enhance our worship in school. We celebrate special occasions at St. Luke's Church visiting at least once a term for a service. Parents are invited to join our acts of worship for parental services and special sharing services.
Parents who wish to withdraw their children from attendance at religious worship are asked to discuss this with the Headteacher, so that alternative arrangements can be made
