"In the same way, let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven". Matthew. Chapter 5. Verse 16
Our pupil and staff conduct links to our school vision and what we aspire to be.
Every term we focus on a Value - not only in our Collective Worship, but in all we do.
This term our value is... 'Courage'.
Christmas Story 2020
Revs Alan and Jane wrote a script for each class to film separately in their bubbles. I'm sure you will all agree that it created a wonderful Big Story of God!
Harvest Festival 2020
This year was a little different to other years as we couldn't go to the Church as a whole school. Instead Revs Alan and Jane created a special Harvest service for the children to participate in at school.

Christianity in our school
As a church of England (Controlled) school, Christian Values are at the heart of our school, allowing pupils to worship, grow and develop in a secure, happy and creative environment.
As a church school we place great emphasis on learning to live the Christian ethos. Our weekly collective worship takes the following format:
Monday: Alternate weeks - Values based whole school collective worship led by the Head Teacher/Open the Book led by at team from St Matthew's and St Oswald's Church
Tuesday: Values based class collective worship led by class teachers
Wednesday: Values based whole school collective worship led by a teacher/Vicar
Thursday: Values based class collective worship led by class teachers
Friday: Whole class celebration assembly/whole class assembly. Parents are invited to attend these and then are welcomed back to the classroom to see children's work and take part in activities with the children.
The children spend time in prayer and reflection as well as planning special church services and collective worship which they deliver to the whole school once every term.
The Worship Group were instrumental in developing our School Vision and Values. (see the Power Point above in how our vision was created).
The Worship Group are currently working towards;
Consulting classes on developing their classroom worship spaces
Developing a Reflection Garden
Designing a School Values Day
Our School Blessing
May God bless us with the knowledge of His love,
As we work, learn, play, and care for each other,
And as He blesses us, may our lights shine in the world.
