Christ Church CE (c) Primary School
At Christ Church we value ourselves, each other and the environment by showing respect, caring and taking responsibility.
Alongside this, we strive to:
- Form strong relationships with both our peers and adults in school, looking after one another.
- Be reflective and taking responsibility for our learning.
- Show resilience towards any challenges that we face.
- Take risks so that we can aspire to be the very best learners, workers and members of society.
- Be resourceful, in challenging situations by using our problem solving skills.
It is through our beliefs and values that we ensure enjoyment, happiness and academic excellence.
Our British values also underpin our school ethos and we develop our understanding of these throughout our curriculum.
We are proud to be a Church School, which continues to nurture and develop our Christian ethos through links to both our Church and the Diocese.

Half Term Awards
We have reached the end of another busy and fun half term at Christ Church. Awards from Governors, TAs and lunchtime staff have all been handed out.
In addition to this, there were six lucky winners of the WHSmith vouchers, awarded to children who have been 'green' all half term.
Many other children have managed to stay 'green' for the whole of the half term and have been rewarded with a special certificate.
Health and Safety
We all know how important it is to stay safe at school so we have gathered some extremely responsible children to be our very own heath and safety monitors.
Take a look at the video below to see just some of the jobs that our wonderful health and safety officers do.
For more information about this and regular updates from our head officers in Year 6; check out the health and safety page which can be found by clicking on the 'our school' tab above.
It has been a busy week at Christ Church with the whole school carrying out exciting and interesting science investigations. The focus of the week has been to conduct practical experiments in all areas of science. This has ranged from looking at the shapes bubbles create, propelling a bean bag with an elastic bungee cord, building a high and stable structure from spaghetti and marshmallows and racing magnets around our very own race track!
St. George's Day Cake Competition
A few weeks ago, our talented catering team launched a competition in school to design a cake for St.George's day. We were inundated with fantastic recipes and designs - it was amazing to see how many budding chefs that we have in the making at Christ Church! After a lot of deliberation, Sophie from Year 3 was chosen as the winner. Her cake design/recipe was created by our team and all the children and staff were able to try one for their lunch. They were delicious. Well done Sophie!
This week Year 6 have been using the environment to create images that represent our school values.
They worked brilliantly as part of a team and then presented their creation to the class, explaining how their image reflects their chosen value.
Can you guess the school value?
End of term achievements
It has been a brilliant and busy term at Christ Church. We are extremely proud of all the hard work that has taken place.
We were able to celebrate this hard work during Worship today.
Children received awards from the Governors and TA's and lunchtime staff. It was also the first 'Good to be Green' prize draw. Six children won the super prize of a WHSmith voucher!
We hope that the excellent behaviour and hard work continue next term.
'Roll Back the Stone'
Earlier this week Year 3 performed songs from Roll Back the Stone. This wonderful event took place at Christ Church. It was great to see so many families there to support the children.
Well done Year 3!
Easter Production - 'Good News'
It has been a busy final week of term for Year 4. They performed their wonderful Easter production to the school and their families.
We were so impressed by all the singing and acting and thoroughly enjoyed their performance of the Easter story.
Well done Year 4. We definitely have some great actors at Christ Church!
On Friday Year 4, 5 and 6 children watched a brilliantly informative E-Safety drama by EScape. The children learnt about the importance of being safe online and what to do should they come across something that they don't feel comfortable with whilst on the Internet. There was then an opportunity to take part in a workshop; allowing the children to discuss their use of the Internet and some tips to think about when online.
We learnt a lot about e-safety and I particularly liked that they used the woods to represent the Internet. Keeping on the right path was an important message. Lily-May (Year 6)
I learnt a lot and was reminded about the importance of being safe online. This is something we talk a lot about in class.

Red Nose Day 2015
Today has been a brilliant day. We are so pleased with the effort that all the children have gone to and can certainly say that we've seen some funny faces! This morning we had a great worship from Year 6 where we learnt about the history of Red Nose Day and saw how the noses have changed over the years. In addition, we were lucky enough to see and listen to the official Red Nose Day song.
