The Church of England has a long and successful history of involvement in education and schooling and Church of England schools have a distinctive identity and ethos, popular with parents and families. It where the development of social, spiritual and emotional intelligence is as important as academic achievement.
Our schools, here, are established primarily for the communities they are located in. They are inclusive and serve equally those who are of the Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith.
And, of course, we are still concerned with our Schools and the staff and parents and children at our schools which are not nominated Church schools.
We can be found engaging with and among children in a variety of contexts because we want to:
Work towards every child and young person having a life-enhancing encounter with the Christian faith and the person of Jesus Christ
Recognise and welcome the capacity of children and young people to transform the Church and the world
Provide support and development for all those working with children and young people
These are joyous ocassions with music and song, very often written by the children themselves, and always with prayers that they have done.
