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.
Wise Words - The Book of Proverbs
It’s been fun getting started with our assembly series. This term, we’re thinking about Wisdom. The Book of Proverbs in the Bible is a good place to start with its wise and varied sayings – each week, I’ll highlight one in the newsletter. It will have been the backbone to all the discussions, drama and stories in assembly. You might like to chat about the theme at home. The children have amazed me with their insight already. I’ll also put in the link to our assembly slide show. There’s always plenty of laughter included too – at the juniors we will be joined every Friday by two opera experts. And at the infants there's a hilarious chef on hand ready to help us make wise choices about eating healthily!
