"Let Your Light Shine"
Our Bath and Wells diocesan education vision is based on Jesus’ words in John 10.10 ‘I have come that they may have life in all its fullness.’
As a church school, our ethos is underpinned by our Christian Values and these are introduced during our Collective Worship and lived through the life of the school.
Our vision statement is "Let your light shine" based upon words from Matthew's gospel (see vision and aims page in the federation section of the site)
Through Collective Worship we provide opportunities for our pupils to learn about, question, discuss and reflect on a range of Christian Values. We use the Christian calendar as a guide to ensure that we offer a broad perspective on each of them which is relevant to the age of our children.
Below is our Collective Worship value coverage for a two year cycle.
|Autumn 1||Generosity (Harvest)||Trust (Harvest)|
|Autumn 2||Friendship (Christmas- Incarnation)||Community (Christmas)|
|Spring 2||Compassion (Easter- Salvation)||Forgiveness (Easter)|
|Summer 2||Service (Leavers)||Hope (Leavers)|
Each term we focus on a different value, exploring a new aspect of that value each week. There are whole school Collective Worship activities on Mondays and Thursdays. Class based Collective Worship on Tuesdays. On Wednesdays we worship through songs and on Fridays we celebrate the achievements of every child in the school. Collective Worship is led by all teaching staff, Rev Chris Butler and visitors to the school. Each class leads Collective Worship at least once a term. We enjoy a close relationship with the local church (St Mary the Virgin) and are delighted to visit whenever possible.
Our theme for this half term is Compassion and there are some pages below to help parents support our work in school through discussion at home.
