Our School Vision & Aims
At Christ Church C of E Primary School, our vision is to create a school family where all children and staff excel and become the very best they can be within the context of Christian belief, practice and values.
As a school family, we aim to:
Provide a rich, broad and balanced curriculum to engage and excite all children.
Encourage children to reflect and realise their own personal strengths and to become curious, independent, lifelong learners.
Develop the highest possible standards of teaching and learning by supporting staff and Governors with excellent professional development and training opportunities.
Develop strong and effective partnerships between families, school and the community to help ensure we provide children with the best possible start in which to lead happy and rewarding lives.
Open a doorway to the world, helping our children to become compassionate, tolerant and respectful citizens, ready to make a difference and ready for the challenges of the 21st century.
Our Christian Values
At Christ Church C of E Primary School, our Christian ethos is firmly rooted in the daily life of the school. As a Church School, we use Christian values to promote and develop children’s spirituality and create an environment where all children are valued as individuals and given every opportunity to grow and flourish. Values such as compassion, respect, responsibility and thankfulness are not only discussed and reflected upon through lessons and collective worship, but also permeate the whole school curriculum.
A different Christian value is explored each term and used to nurture a sense of awe and wonder and to promote an awareness of there being more than yourself in the world. We encourage our children to reflect on their role in this world by asking and responding to questions of purpose and meaning. We also encourage our children to consider different Christian values, in the hope that they develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to enable them to grow as independent and reflective learners who blossom into respectful and caring adults.
