Whitchurch CE Infant & Nursery School

Being a Church school

Picture 1
Picture 2

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:

This half term we are focusing on Justice.

 

What is Justice?

Justice means more than making things 'fair'.

 

In order for a community to live together well in a just community it is important to have rules or laws that everybody sticks to.  Imagine if there were no rules for people drving cars on the road.

 

As a School community we have our Golden Rules that help to maintain a fair and just community. It is important that everyone follows the rules.

 

Lady Justice 

 

Lady Justice is one of the most famous landmarks in London and is found on top of the Central Criminal Courts commonly called the Old Bailey.  Designed as a symbol for justice:in her left hand she carries the scales of truth and fairness and in her right hand a double edged sword representing the power of reason and justice.
