To live as family: students joining Christ Church Primary School belong to the school family. In or outside of the classroom students learn to be a friend to all and to trust each other at all times. Our pastoral structure ensures that every student is known individually. Students enjoy coming to our school and feel safe and secure. The three schools in the Koinonia Federation work closely together. There are opportunities for students to develop their mentoring and leadership skills. All students new to the school are mentored by their own student Guardian Angel who will support their induction into Christ Church Primary School life.
To grow in faith: the school is fully inclusive and welcomes students and staff from all faiths and with no faith. It journeys with each individual from where they are by strengthening, challenging, supporting and nourishing them. Collective worship is a key part of each day. We come together either as a family group, house or year group to spend time in reflection allowing us to grow in our spirituality. Led by senior leaders or the church chaplain, collective worship is a creative and responsive time that follows the Anglican calendar and also acknowledges the key dates in other faiths. Religious Studies, the school's specialism, is a central element of the curriculum and provides the opportunity to learn about the religion and its impact on science, culture and society. Within the extra-curricular programme there are other activities including Bible club which all students can attend.
To be united in fellowship: the all-through school celebrates and embraces the diversity of the communities from which the students come. We work hard to create unity through fellowship. Students flourish in companionship with others through mutual trust and sharing of experiences, interests and activities. The school has a very active parents' association that runs social events for school families. Christ Church is an outward looking school and works hard to serve its local community through activities such as foodbank collections and responding to natural disasters in areas of the world in which our students have family.
The school’s motto, from Luke’s Gospel, is ‘do unto others, as you would have them do unto you’. This summarises its Christian vision of putting faith, family and friendship first in the school’s mission.
