Our Christian Values

Our school values are rooted in Christian values and the teachings of Jesus. They are evident through our curriculum and embedded in our ethos here at All Saints.

Collective Worship 

As a church school, our daily act of collective worship is an important element of what we do at All Saints. Each half term we focus on one of our Christian values: Community, Hope, Joy, Wisdom, Dignity and Peace. Through reflecting on these values, the children are encouraged to make links between the Christian faith and their own lives. We also incorporate aspects of British Values and PSHE (personal, social and health education) to complement our value and enhance our provision.

Worship is led by different members of our community, including Rev Heming, our headteacher, teachers and even the children themselves!

Please find our collective worship plans below:

Prayer is a daily part of school life - we believe in the importance of prayer and a continued dialogue with God. Pupils are asked to spend time writing prayers for the collective worship sessions that they lead; we also have our own school prayer:
 

Bless our school

That by working together

And playing together

And praying together

We may learn to serve you

And serve one another

Amen.

 

In the school grounds we will be developing our spiritual areas, which we hope will be a place for all members of the school community to come and reflect and pray.

Our last SIAMS inspection was carried out in December 2015, where we were graded as a GOOD church school. Please find a copy of the report at the bottom of this page.

What is the purpose of a SIAMS inspection?

  • to provide an evaluation of the impact of the school’s distinctively Christian vision for the governing body, the school, parents, diocese/district, Church of England Education Office, Methodist Church and the wider public
  • to meet the requirements of section 48 of the Education Act 2005 for schools which have a religious character
  • to make a significant contribution to the improvement of church schools.

SIAMS inspection focuses on the impact that the Christian vision of the church school has on pupils and adults. This will involve 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. Schools will become effective by means of a variety of strategies, approaches and styles which reflect their local context or church tradition. Inspectors will carefully diagnose how each church school has a positive impact on pupils and adults. They should not apply a preconceived template of what an effective church school should be like.

What is the focus of the SIAMS inspection?

The Evaluation Schedule 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

One overall grade is awarded reflecting the contribution of these strands to the flourishing of pupils and adults in a church school. In addition, a standalone grade is awarded in all schools for collective worship.
