This means that the school was founded by the Church of England (in 1869). The school has a church 'ethos' which means that Christian values are at the centre of all we do and at the start of the term, each class chooses three or four Christian values to represent their class. our school Christian values link directly to the Bible, and include: Thankfulness Reverence Humility Endurance Compassion Each of these values becomes the focus of study for a half-term and for the assemblies in that term. Over a three year cycle all the values mean and how they are lived out in our lives. The assemblies are Christian acts of worship which include elements such as stories, prayers, songs and personal thoughts. Children are encouraged to take a full part in these worship times and they are keen to take part: they seem to enjoy singing, praying and discussing the issues raised. Our school prayer is used at least once a week: Thank you God for making us, Thank you for taking care of us Thank you for all the good things we enjoy, Help us to show we are thankful, By living as you want us to live And by doing what you want us to do. For Jesus Christ sake Amen C R Woodbridge Headteacher
