The Church

As a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School, the school is inspected by the Diocese.  An inspection was held on Thursday 5th March 2015.


We are delighted that their judgement was "Outstanding" and their final report is available below.

R.E. Values Day - Wednesday, 18th March 2015


Our Christian values underpin everything we do in school. Our normal school day encompasses friendship, respect and trust.

The children enjoyed our R. E. Values Day, emphasising the importance we place on these important aspects of modern day life. 

We shared our work the following day, inviting parents in to see some of the fantastic work we did.



St Mary's Church


We are very proud of our close links with St Mary's Church.  We have regular visits from our local clergy Reverend Philip Dorling.  Rev Philip takes regular Collective Worship sessions in School.


Throughout the year the children visit the church both for educational and celebrational visits.  Take a look at some of the photos from recent performances.

Collective Worship


Collective Worship is an important part of our school life.  Wherever possible we try to involve the children in leading Collective Worship.  We feel it is a very special time to allow us all to reflect of our busy lives as well as take the opportunity to think about very important issues.

Each half tem a Class will take part in leading a special Collective Worship.  We welcome suggestions from the children on themes that we can cover in Collective Worship.  We also run a Collective Worship Commitee, led by the children to help improve our whole school worship.

Church Visits


Here are a selection of photos from recent visits to St Mary's and Carlisle Cathedral.

Our Reflection Area


We have a dedicated place of reflection in school where the children are welcome to visit.  We encourage the children to use this space to reflect on their thoughts and questions.
