Our Christian ethos is important to us and we value the principles of Church of England school to serve the common good for all. Therefore, we are proud to welcome children of all faiths or no faith to our schools. Our priority as a Church of England school is to deliver a high-quality education for all children within the context of Christian belief and practice.
Our Christian values underpin the moral development of our pupils. Each half term explores a different value. This is a focus of our collective worship and our PSHE lessons. These values help us to build our relationships with one another and the wider community. We have carefully chosen our six values of: fairness, honesty, teamwork, ambition, care and respect as these values will help our children become well rounded and worldly individuals who will make a vital contribution to the society of today and the future.
CONNECTIONS WITH THE CHURCH
We have close connections with our local church, St Peter’s and Paul’s, and the church community and celebrate significant milestones throughout the Church and school year by attending services. The school and the local community are invited to attend these services, which are largely led by the children. This is an opportunity for our pupils to share poems, artwork, musical performances and prayers that commemorate the significant event that the service is for e.g. Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas or Easter. In addition, we use the church as a learning resource to enable the children to develop their understanding of curriculum subjects as well as religious education.
At St Peter’s, we have developed strong links with our local incumbents and Church Community as well as links with the diocese of Lichfield. Reverend Nick Heron leads weekly collective worship at the school and the children also enjoy visits from other faith leaders and the ‘Open the Book’ team.
