We are proud to be a church school and of our close links with Studley Parish Church
Reverend Kate and other representatives from the church lead collective worship with the children every Thursday. These are linked to our Christians values:
Respect Compassion Courage Perseverance Honesty Service
We are also very lucky to have Angela, our lovely family link worker. She is employed jointly by school and the church. Her role is to develop links between our families, school and the church.
Agreed Syllabus for Worcestershire
As a Church of England school we deliver the Worcestershire Agreed Religious Education Syllabus together with Understanding Christianity (a national syllabus). Understanding Christianity is set out via this link: https://www.understandingchristianity.org.uk/
Our Religious Education curriculum not only covers Christianity, but includes the study of other religions and non-religious beliefs too. These include Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Humanism. Whilst our ethos is based on Christian values, we welcome all faiths and communities, encouraging understanding, tolerance and inclusion. We equip all of our pupils to approach faith and non-religious beliefs in an informed and theologically investigative way.
Look out for news of visitors to school and future trips!
A message from Angela our Family Link Worker
"Live life in all its fullness." John 10
The SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults. This involves looking at the school’s Christian vision, the provision the school makes because of this vision and how effective this provision is in enabling all pupils to flourish.
The evaluation of our provision has one inspection question: how effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?
This is explored through seven strands:
- Vision and Leadership
- Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills
- Character Development: Hope, Aspiration and Courageous Advocacy
- Community and Living Well Together
- Dignity and Respect
- The impact of collective worship
- The effectiveness of religious education
