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.
It's a load of rubbish
Our assembly series for this term is now well underway; the term’s theme takes the narrative found in the New Testament book of Acts, as St. Paul travels on his missionary journeys and brings the good news of Jesus’ love to the wider world. There’s also a weekly link to a species of tree – for example in this first full week, as we heard about the fire of Pentecost when God poured out His Holy Spirit on the disciples and made them bold and courageous, we also learnt that the silver birch makes a great fire starter, burning quickly and with a bright flame. It reminded us of living life enthusiastically and finding things that ignite our passion – much better than being negative and uninspired. We’ve challenged one another to “recycle our lives”, finding ways to become better people and recognising that “It’s Rubbish Being Negative”. As the weeks go by, each week we’ll be contrasting the negative ways that we sometimes live, and challenging each other to be more exciting and fulfilled.
