Our Christian values underpin all that we do as a school. We believe that building a strong foundation based on Love, Courage and Contribution gives the children the chance to grow long-lasting and positive friendships that are created on shared values. We welcome children and families from all faiths and those of no faith at all, and hope that our inclusive approach ensures questions relating to religion and spirituality can be shared openly.
The Dean Close Foundation Chaplain regularly visits to lead assemblies. We also mark occasions such as Remembrance Day and we hold a whole school Carol service to celebrate Christmas. Awe and wonder should be at the heart of learning and by encouraging children to explore our world to the full, we firmly believe that must include questions around faith.
