Christian Distinctiveness

As a Church of England school it is important that we provide an education that focuses on Christian values and vision. We see our vision reflected in the parable of the mustard seed Matthew 13:32

We welcome children of all faiths into our unique setting, and at our school no child is invisible.

Our mission is to 'Learn, Love and Grow with God'.

Our Christian Values are Community, Resilience, Integrity, Excellence and Respect.



John 15:12 ~My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.


Luke 6:31~Do to others as you would have them do to you


Luke 1:37~For nothing will be impossible with God.


Matthew 19:19~Honour your mother and father, and, you shall love your neighbour as yourself


Colossians 3:23~Whatever you do, do it with all your heart.


Our School Prayer

Bless our school.

In that working together,

And playing together,

We learn to love one another,

And serve you.
