Being a Church School

A Church school’s Christian distinctiveness is part of the ethos of being a Church school .

The communities we serve may not all have a Christian focus, but we are here to serve all our children, regardless of understanding and beliefs.

Our tradition retains our belief in Christianity, which is shown in our schools through, love, care, compassion, trust, and respect. In our school communities we foster these and other values which form the basis for our schools’ visions.

We use the Bible to support our work and children grow up with a knowledge of the Bible as well as other resources to enable them to develop their own understanding and beliefs.

To help understand and resource our Christian distinctiveness we use the following resources;
