Quotes taken from the report…
“Christ Church Church of England Primary School is a caring, happy Christian community where children feel valued and safe. Children talk enthusiastically about the many activities that are provided for them and they are proud of their school.”
“All classrooms have quiet reflection areas which include children’s prayers and ‘Worship and Wonder Books’ and a recently developed reflective area in the school grounds where children are developing the ability to express their thoughts and reflections.”
“Collective worship is highly valued and central to the life of the school. This is because it is highly effective in promoting the school’s Christian values. Children recognise its importance and talk about what it means to them.”
“Parents appreciate opportunities to join their children for worship in church for the celebration of Christian festivals such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter. Children understand the value of personal prayer and reflection and contribute confidently to prayer during worship. They write their own prayers and know that prayer can be to say ‘thank you or ‘sorry’ to God.”
“The commitment of the headteacher, together with the governing body and support of staff, means that the vision and core Christian values of Christ Church school are clearly articulated and put into practice throughout the school.”
