Inspire Believe Achieve
At Edenham CE Primary school, we endeavour to serve our community and the common good by providing our children with the highest standard of education, within a Christian context. We celebrate diversity and demonstrate inclusivity. Inspired by the verse Hebrews 12:1-12, we aim to instil perseverance throughout our community so we can all realise our intent in times of ease and difficulty.
Within a Christian ethos we aim to:
We are a school that prides itself on our Christian values and aim to ensure all within our community feel happy, safe and valued, enabling us all to be esteemed citizens making a difference within our environment.
Our school provides opportunities for all to inspire, believe and achieve with one another - ensuring we have the skills to enable us to thrive in the ever-changing world we live in.
SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural. All schools in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC. We hope that this page clearly identifies how we do this within our school, community and families and how we meet some of the required outcomes.
As a Church School, Collective worship is an important part of our school day. Collective worship takes place every day. During Collective Worship, the whole school and often other members of our community come together. In this time, we learn, worship and celebrate all that god has created and helped us to achieve. Collective Worship is led by various members of our staff and also Father Ed each week. Our Bishop's Visitor also leads Collective Worship regularly.
As well as Collective Worship within school, we also visit the church termly to partake in services:
September - Welcome Service
October - Harvest
December - Christmas
April - Easter
July - Leaver's Service
Children may be withdrawn from RE /collective worship for religious reasons at the wish of their parents/ carers. The Executive Head Teacher/Head of School will ensure that suitable provision is made for such pupils.
