Worship and Reflection

Our school Vision of 'Learning together through Friendship and Faith' is the roots of our school - developed together with all stakeholders it encompass us a school family. It gives a shared belonging and focus for all that we do.

Our Christian values of Kindness, Fairness and Hope are not only shared throughout our school community, but are used in school to help children understand their place in the world. The story of Zacchaeus, Luke 19 underpins our vision and values.

This page aims to provide a space to reflect and, if you so wish, share in worship.
