Our place in the world

Our Christian culture – as a Church school we regularly invite children to engage in acts of Collective Worship, we pray to God and learn about Jesus and his teachings from the Bible. We celebrate Christian faith together. We actively engage with our local faith communities to deepen and support our school vision, values and spiritual wellbeing. We learn about varied faith and non-faith belief systems from across the world.

Our community – we actively engage with our local community and they actively engage with and support us. We host annual events and celebrations that involve our families and the wider community (our annual Remembrance Service for example). We work closely with other educational establishments to secure the best opportunities and outcomes for our children.


Our landscape – our school serves two lively tourist villages set in a beautiful and wild landscape. We use the outdoors and our local area to contextualise and enhance our learning. We also use the outdoors, and places near to us, to develop our own resilience and our interpersonal skills.

Our country – we understand that we live in a developed, diverse and vibrant nation. Our country has benefitted from being at the forefront of cultural and technological advances and has welcomed people from across the planet as a place to make home. We know that we enjoy relatively safe lives compared to others around the globe but we also recognise the challenges that we might face as we journey into adulthood in our society. We recognise and embrace British Values and understand how they complement the values of Primary School.


Our planet – we learn about the environment and have a deep concern for the future of our planet and its inhabitants. We learn about how our actions impact on habitats, wildlife and communities across the globe. We take steps to reduce this impact.
