Hackleton CEVA Primary School is a Voluntary Aided Primary School and, recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England.

This includes respecting other faiths and working in partnership with the church in the parish of St John the Baptist, Piddington and at diocesan level.

 The school’s Christian Vision

Jesus said, ‘Love God, and love others as you love yourself.’

(Luke 10, verse 27)

 

Our inclusive and distinctive Christian vision and values are at the heart of our Church School. These values are embedded within everything that we do and help everyone to develop an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, respect, forgiveness, friendship and trust.

Through our Christian vision and values, we aim to ignite a passion for learning in every child so that they can reach their true potential in all that they do. It is important that we discover and learn from each other, both from the school community and beyond. It helps us to promote curiosity, enthusiasm, independence and resilience within a nurturing community which has each child’s wellbeing at its heart. This truly reflects the Church of England’s vision for Education as we want every member of the school community to live life in all its fullness (John 10.10) and so our motto, ‘Inspiring Learning for Life’ was formed.

Collective Worship

Collective Worship is a daily act of worship that brings the school community together. It is distinctively Christian and promotes the spiritual development of all.

Collective Worship is carefully planned to reflect our school's vision and values; British Values and current society; Biblical stories and texts, and celebrate what is wonderful at our school. Our acts of worship are conducted in a range of ways. Further details of this can be found in our Collective Worship Policy.
