Welcome to Christ Church Primary School’s

website!

 

We are a 2 form entry Church of England Primary School, situated in Western Lichfield, Staffordshire.

Christ Church is a friendly and caring school where children are happy, motivated and eager to learn. Positive behaviour and respect for each other is embedded throughout our school community. Our school ethos is ‘Christ Church Cares.’

Being a Church of England School, we have strong links with our local Church, Christ Church.

We hope you enjoy looking around our site and that you can find all of the information you require. Should you wish to look around the school, then please contact the school office (details can be found above) and they will arrange a tour for you.

Talented artists at Christ Church

Fifteen of our talented artists, from Year 4 and 5, have been to the art department at The Friary to create 3 canvases: The rainbow fish, The Gruffalo and our take on a Lichenstien. These will be displayed around our school in September. The children were taught how to work with acrylic paint and how to successfully produce different tones and textures. Keep at look out for them in school, when they are displayed!

The Lichfield Festival Trombonist visits Christ Church

Today, Wednesday 10th July 2014, a trombone player from the Lichfield festival came to play at Christ Church. The money that school council raised from the talent show, paid for this to take place.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learned a lot about the trombone, such as how to play it and what different type of notes it can reach.

Last night, Thursday 1st May, a number of children took part in Christ Church Has Talent!
