By Brook Valley as a Church School
As a church school our ethos and core values of friendship, forgiveness, honesty and hope run through everything we do and the way we relate to our community. We aim to ensure that each pupil is safe, happy and feels valued, unique and precious as a child of God within our thriving learning community. Because we are a Church school, we strive for the highest standards academically but also in the development of each child's spiritual, moral, social and cultural education. Every child is regarded as a gift from God and through nurturing all areas of their growth and development we provide better foundations for learning, resulting in higher achievement and more self aware and compassionate children.
Our Foundation status is important to us. We actively promote Christian values through our daily acts of collective worship, our School Promises and our Personal, Social and Health Education but they are also implicit in the way in which all members of our community interact. We have close links with the By Brook Benefice. Clergy and members of the church community regularly lead collective worship within the school and at Harvest, Christmas and Easter the children are welcomed into one of the local village churches to lead a service for friends and family. The school is also proud to host The Ark each month where families from the school and wider community join together for fun, fellowship and food.
Most of all we are a happy and purposeful school, a place people look forward to going to - children, teachers, parents/guardians and governors – where everyone feels welcome and valued.
