As a Church of England Aided School, Collective Worship is an important part of our school day. The school gathers each day to take part in collective worship based on a topic for each term. Parents will be invited to worship led by their children.

These six values underpin our 4Rs as we aim to provide a fulfilling learning ethos for the children in our school.
