Welcome to St George's Church of England Primary School
Our aim is to value each pupil as an individual and ensure that they reach their full potential by 'letting their light shine,' through our Christian Values of Respect, Honesty, Courage, Kindness, Forgiveness and Hope.”
'Bringing Faith and Education Together'
All are welcome! We are firmly Christian in not selecting by ability, race or gender. What inclusion does not mean is tolerating unacceptable behaviour. Parents may rest assured that we have zero tolerance of anti-social behaviour, violence and the disruption to learning. Our Christian ethos encourages a real sense of community and the family nature of the school means that children can be themselves in a safe and accepting environment. Pupils, parents, staff and governors work well together and value standards and achievements.
What makes us special?
St George’s CE Primary School is a unique learning establishment. Our vision is built around a broad and balanced education, where children are able to explore their interests and talents, whilst making good progress across a range of academic and foundation subjects.
We believe that children should live and learn in a happy, secure and stimulating environment, a place where they are valued as individuals, encouraged to grow in self–esteem and given the opportunities they deserve to reach their potential.
Our faith is important to us. We are an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ Christian school at the same time as welcoming those of other beliefs. Worship and quality Religious Education are important to us and the strong links we have developed with our local church is an important feature of the school life. We believe strongly in tolerance, respect and understanding of the beliefs of others.
We enjoy a wonderful natural environment which provides further stimulus for our children. There is opportunity to explore nature through a variety of wildlife areas including our Forest School and woodland areas and large open spaces.
The achievement of every pupil is paramount for our staff. We are committed to providing an excellent education, both academic and pastoral care, to ensure every child continues to develop enquiring minds; instilling the motivation to learn and the ability to work both independently and collaboratively, while being confident in taking risks with their own learning.
Our Behaviour Values are linked with our school Christian Values, bringing faith and education together.
At this school it is extremely important to us to develop the ‘whole child’. As such, we wish to focus on all aspects of development — academic, aesthetic, personal, inter–personal, social and emotional. We also provide a range of opportunities beyond the classroom that allows the children to 'let their light shine.'
