We are a Church or England school and we provide a Christian foundation for our pupils. As a result, Christian values and principles play a large part of Worship in our school. A member of the Church Ministry Team takes the worship once a week and this is reinforced in class.
The diocesan guidelines for Religious Education are followed with the Christian religion forming the main part of our RE studies. Other religions are also studied as part of the curriculum to enable the pupils to understand as many different religious views as possible. We also celebrate festivals such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter at St Bartholomew’s church in the village.
Children are encouraged from year 2 to play a variety of instruments, such as flute, clarinet, piano and guitar. These lessons are taught by external music teachers, paid for by parents. We feel that the teaching of music develops pupils ability to listen and appreciate a wide variety of music. Some of these lessons are provided by GAM (Gloucester Academy of Music), others by private tutors.
We are lucky to have our own outdoor heated swimming pool. In the summer term every child swims every day. We have a swimming pool committee who raise funds towards the running of the pool and ensure it is always ready for action.
We have excellent facilities for sport, a large playing field and playground, as well as gymnastic equipment in the school hall. Children are taught sport and exercise as a necessary part of a healthy lifestyle. Qualified sports coaches often work with all classes. We take part in many local sporting events, such as cross country running, tag rugby, swimming gala and multi sports.
