Children are spiritual beings who often think deeply and hold serious convictions.
We regard it as a privilege to work with young people to ponder the more profound questions of life and faith. In our school spirituality is seen in joyful singing and dance, and in silent meditation and prayer. As a Church School we seek to nurture in the heart and minds of our children the knowledge and love of God. We provide them with an experience of Christian Community which will influence and shape the rest of their lives.
Assemblies are a high point of the day, expressing our general ethos of mutual respect, laughter and love. Our school motto, "Learn to Live" is taken from Jesus' words; "I have come that you may have life and have it to the full".
Parents do have the right to withdraw their children from religious education lessons and from acts of collective worship should you wish to do this, please contact the Headteacher.
God at work!
Our assembly series this term is called “God at Work” and we’ll be using the metaphor of roadworks to ponder on how we continue to learn from the experiences of life. We’re taking the story of Moses as our theme, explaining to the children how God worked throughout Moses’ life to turn him into an inspirational leader. Each week we’ll be thinking about a different excerpt from the Old Testament book of Exodus and we’ve started off with some great teacher acting, with Moses as a baby being hidden in a basket amongst the bulrushes in the River Nile. His mother showed such incredible trust in God’s plans, even when things seemed so tricky. As well as noticing God’s help, we’ll also be looking at people who help us on our journey through life – do get in touch if you’d like to visit us and talk about your own career, especially if you’re someone who cares for others.
