Values & Ethos

Values & Ethos

‘Walk in the light of the Lord,’ is central to all that the school offers the children and community, and underpins the Christian Values of the school. We see ourselves as bringing light into the lives of the children and community, both in terms of sharing the love of God and a love of learning.  This light opens pathways to equip our children with the skills in life to enable them to become balanced, creative and successful individuals with a sense of purpose and destiny.

At Churchfield C.E. (VC)  Primary Academy we educate our children for the future, enabling them to develop as confident, independent, well-balanced individuals who care about their community and the wider world, and want to look after it. The children leave Churchfield with a life-long love of learning. The school prides itself on the support offered to all of our families.

Churchfield provides a friendly and caring community where pupils, parents, staff and governors work together to provide an environment where every child is able to fulfil their potential.

We are committed to providing a wide range of opportunities to inspire children, whatever their interests or talents. Children, teachers, and parents are enthused by our curriculum which aims to be challenging, diverse and exciting. We make learning fun and relevant. We make continuing investment in providing a stimulating and effective learning environment with recent projects including refurbishment of communal areas, the school hall and building a new entrance to the school.

Visitors to our school often comment on the friendly, calm and happy environment. We believe that we know every child as an individual, and place great importance on the establishment of strong and positive relationships with parents and carers.

Furthermore, the school recognises its place in the wider church body and has strong links with St Augustine’s church and the diocese. At Churchfield C.E. Primary Academy we aim to prepare our students to become good citizens of the future. Through our curriculum we teach pupils British values and how to celebrate diversity. We aim to raise their awareness of radicalisation and extremist views, whatever the source. We have adopted the principles and advice found in ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education 2015’ and the 2011 ‘Prevent Strategy’.

We celebrate a different Christian Value every month.
