Church Distinctiveness

What makes a Church school different from a community school?

The Diocese of Chichester says:

"Church of England schools offer an education that is distinctively Christian. Although each church school will be unique, all church schools will share core values based on the Gospel values. Our church schools should therefore be places where loving God and loving our neighbours, is lived out in the daily life of the school.

All our Schools have the following ethos statement in their Instrument of Government.

'Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.

The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers all of its pupils'.

We believe our school is distinctive as it is based on Christian values and teaching but not exclusive as all children and families should feel welcome here.
