Our Christian Distinctiveness
Our school strives to serve the community by providing an excellent education for all pupils, of all abilities and backgrounds. We are a Church Controlled primary school and as such, work hard to preserve and develop our distinctive Christian character, liaising closely with the local church and Canterbury Diocese.
We converted to an academy (01 November 2015) through the Diocese of Canterbury Multi Academy Trust (Aquila). We took this decision to enable our school to have greater autonomy and have a greater say in how we are run now and in the future.
Questions and Reflections from Collective Worship
These will be available weekly and addressed in class as well as during whole school Collective Worship. Please feel free to chat further with your children about them.
Week 1 - Believe in yourself! See failure as part of the learning journey.
Week 2 - What little bit of heaven can you create today by making positive choices?
Week 3 - God wants to be there for you just like a loving mother is there for her darling child.
Week 4 - Easter is a time to remember Jesus on the cross, defeating death and rising again with new life. What can we do to show our thanks?
Week 5 - "For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it" (John 3:16-17). God gave His only Son to save us. It must have been heart-breaking to give up His one and only Son. What do you think about that sacrifice?
