Links to the Parish Church
St Mary's with Holy Trinity Parish Church
As a Church of England School we enjoy many links with our Parish Church which is just at the end of Church Walk.
Every Christmas we have our Nativity in the Church.
Every half-term we have an assembly in Church to which all the parents are invited. We usually link these to festivals, such as Easter or Epiphany.
Every year we have an assembly in Church for Ascension Day in May, and then we walk up the Hoad, which is just behind the Church.
‘Teach children how they should live and they will remember it all of their lives.’ Proverbs 22:6
Our vision is to provide a secure, happy learning community based upon Christian Values in which each child is encouraged to reach their full potential.
We aim to support the children's developing skills as learners by:
- Providing a secure foundation upon which individuals can grow into independent, challenged learners.
- Stimulating active learning experiences,that develop children's awareness of themselves as learners.
- Valuing every child irrespectve of gender, disability,age, race or culture and ensure that they have an active voice in school and know that their opinions matter.
- Supporting children in succeeding in their learning and finding opportunities to celebrate their success.
- Developing skills of independence, co-operation and self- motivation.
- Contributing to the wider community, both locally and globally.
