Being a Church School
The school is an integral part of the community and held in high regard. Our children enjoy coming to school; they are happy, secure and enjoy learning. We are an inclusive school where all members of our school family are valued as individuals and for the contributions they make allowing every pupil to achieve their full potential. Our Christian ethos ensures that children are taught to be thoughtful, caring and generous towards each other; putting others’ needs first. Everything we do as a school is underpinned by our five core Christian values; kindness, resilience, integrity, courage and curiosity.
Whilst we are a Church of England School, our values ensure we teach children to respect other worldwide religions and beliefs and to understand the value of ‘faith.’
Our church, St Mary Magdalene, is in walking distance from the school. Therefore, we participate in many of the Church Festivals throughout the year such as Harvest, Christmas, Easter, etc. Further, we have the church wardens as well as local pastors and vicars come and deliver regular collective worship in our school hall.
Service is of utmost importance as we always seek ways in which to teach children about ‘doing for others.’ Every year the children choose a charity to support and help to raise money through various fundraising activities. Our local community is of utmost importance and at Harvest the children deliver parcels of food items to older members and families of the village. At Christmas and Easter the children deliver biscuits and chocolate eggs to remind our senior citizens that Crowmarsh School is always thinking about them.
Everything we offer as a school is richly enhanced by our Christian values. The impact of this ethos is clear to see when you visit. Our school and our church are at the heart of the local community, working together as a cohesive team to promote high levels of behaviour, respect and ‘service,’ demonstrated through the teaching of Jesus and rooted in Christian values.
