We are a Church school. This means that we actively promote the Christian values of love, kindness, honesty, peace respect and trust regardless of background, colour, ethnicity or faith.
We have close links to our local parish Church of St Alkmund's in Whitchurch who in turn belong to Churches Together in Whitchurch.
Our children take part in collective worship daily - Two days per week our whole school join together for morning worship and once a week we join together for songs of praise. On other days the children take part in worship within their classes or key stage.
Each half term we focus on a different value:
"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you."
"Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice." "Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."
Jesus discussing forgiveness
"Do not judge others, and God will not judge you; do not condemn others, and God will not condemn you; forgive others, and God will forgive you."
"Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness." H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
"Because forgiveness is like this: a room can be dank because you have closed the windows, you've closed the curtains. But the sun is shining outside, and the air is fresh outside. In order to get that fresh air, you have to get up and open the window and draw the curtains apart." Desmond Tutu
"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." Mahatma Gandhi
