Our school motto is ‘Always Be Kind’ and this is rooted at the heart of everything we do. As a church school, we believe that our role is to educate the whole child and that the spiritual growth of our children is as important as their academic achievement. Our Christian values underpin our curriculum and we embrace spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Our Church of England Ethos Statement
As a Church of England Academy with a historic foundation, Christ Church Primary School aims to provide an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. We maintain very close links with Christ Church, the parish and diocese and seek to serve our community by delivering a curriculum that supports Christian values and helps children to develop their own spirituality and curiosity, irrespective of individual beliefs.
We believe that a Church school should be distinctive and inclusive and we aim to foster a sense of belonging to a school family for all our pupils and staff.
Collective Worship at Christ Church
As a school, there are daily opportunities for collective worship where our values are reflected upon and celebrated. As well as our acts of daily worship, there are regular opportunities to worship together in Christ Church, and the school community are very welcome to join us for these special services. Every Friday, we also hold a Celebration service where we celebrate special events and achievements during our school week and also recognise children’s acts of kindness. Children are also invited to bring certificates from outside school so that we can recognise and celebrate their achievements together.
Church School Report
Every five years, we undergo a Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS).
