Church School Distinctiveness

Our School Prayer

Our School Prayer

God bless my family!

God bless my friends!

Help me to keep trying,

Until the day ends,

Let me be responsible,

And teach me to respect.

If I’m told ‘I’m sorry’,

Then help me to accept.

Amen.

By Hattie.

Our School Values

We do not have school rules; we live by a set of values influenced by Christian teaching. These values are forgiveness, friendship, respect, responsibility and perseverance.

Collective Worship

We celebrate Collective Worship every morning.

Our Worship is Christian based. We sing songs, have prayers, stories form the bible and have reflection time / thought for the day. Children are encouraged to be involved throughout our Worship. It provides the opportunity for pupils to consider spiritual and moral issues and to explore their own beliefs. We encourage participation and response through the active involvement in speaking & listening. It is also very important in developing community spirit, promoting a common ethos and shared values and reinforcing positive attitudes. We have weekly visitors from our local church who also deliver our Worship.

Each half term we have class worship, where members of the class lead their own act of worship. We also hold Collective Worship in the church each half term where parents, governors and friends are invited to join us.

 We finish each week with a Celebration Assembly where good work, behaviour, citizenship in and out of school, attendance and punctuality are recognised by the school community.

 

The links with the church year are reflected in school by celebrating important festivals in the church calendar for example Harvest Festival, Christmas and Easter. The whole school participates in Eucharist/Communion as an important part of these celebrations.

The school offers confirmation classes to both pupils and staff. We actively participate in the Church School’s Festival at Lincoln Cathedral and the Women’s World Day of Prayer. We have an active link between the church and school in the daily celebration of Collective Worship with a member of the church community delivering on a regular basis.

We went to the church on Tuesday the 23rd of May for our Collective Worship.

Mrs Roe talked to us about forgiveness. She talked about fixing things like fixing a sock with a hole in it with a needle and thread. Mending a book with cello tape. She asked us how we would mend friendship. We said by ‘Saying sorry and forgiving each other’

Mrs Roe then told us a story about a golden deer who saved a man. The deer asked the man to tell no one about him. The queen had a dream about the golden deer and the king said’ Whoever finds the Golden deer will receive lots of money.

The man broke his promise and showed the king and his soldiers where the deer lived.

They were just about to kill the golden deer when he started to speak and the soldiers put their bows and arrows down. When the king found out that the man had made a promise the king was furious and tried to kill him. The golden deer forgave the man and the king said ‘If you forgive him I will forgive him too.’

The assembly finished with reverend Andrew and Mrs Roe saying a prayer.

Church School Inspection

 

Section 48 inspection focuses on the effect that the Christian ethos of the church school has on the children and young people who attend it.

 

Church schools will employ a variety of strategies and styles, which reflect their particular local context or church tradition in order to be distinctive and effective. Inspectors will, therefore, not be looking to apply a preconceived template of what a church school should be like.



 

The principal objective of the Section 48 inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a church school.

 Section 48 Inspections are carried out by accredited National Society inspectors who spend the equivalent of 1 day at the school talking with children and adults, gathering evidence and making judgements around four key questions:

  1. How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  2. What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  3. How effective is the religious education? (in Voluntary Aided schools and academies)
  4. How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?
