Our Christian Vision

We work together and share the best of ourselves to help everyone around us flourish in every way to become life-long learners. Through the miracle of Jesus feeding the 5000, we trust that sharing all we have will provide for all through the power of God’s love.

Christian Values

Although there are many Christian Values we have chosen four which we have placed a strong emphasis on to help create and sustain the Christian ethos of our school.  These values are Respect, Truth, Compassion and Friendship. The pupils learn to link these values to the parables of Jesus.

Helping Children and Young People to Reflect and Pray

Prayer spaces enable children and young people, of all faiths and none, to explore life’s questions, spirituality and faith in a safe, creative and interactive way.

Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

Our school community use the miracle that Jesus performed through God’s power, to help them remember to share all we have with others. Watch members of our Lighting the Candle group read this miracle.
