Wantage CE Primary School

Excellence for All

"Life in abundance" John 10:10

SIAMS

'Life in abundance' John 10:10

 

As a Church of England school, we are very proud of our distinctive Christian ethos.

 

We have close links with the local church and we are well supported by advisers from the Oxford Diocese Board of Education.

 

Our school vision, 'excellence for all in an environment of love, respect, forgiveness, courage and hope' is rooted in the Church of England's vision for education published in 2016. In it, the Church of England highlights five aspects of their vision for education which is 'deeply Christian, serving the common good':

 

1) Abundant living: Hope

2) Community: Relationships

3) Inclusivity: Dignity

4) Empowerment: Wisdom

5) Service: Hospitality

 

Our vision for Wantage CE Primary School includes 'where lives are enhanced by a rich experience and understanding of Christianity'.

 

We are a church school, not a faith school, which means that we welcome families of all faiths and those with no faith at all. Our school was established to serve the local community of Wantage.

 

Everyone who comes through our front door should experience love and respect; forgiveness when it is needed; courage to keep on going; and hope for the future.

 

I hope that every child, and whole family, will leave us in Year 6 having received a rich experience and understanding of Christianity through our ethos, the way that we treat each other every day, and through regular events throughout the year:

 

  • Our Christian values
  • Collective worship (assemblies)
  • Open the Book Bible story assemblies led by members of the local church every Friday
  • Annual prayer spaces in school
  • Christmas Christingle service in church
  • Year 5 Easter Passion Play in church
  • Year 6 Leavers' service in church

 

If you would like to find out more about what it means to be a Church of England school, please do speak to any member of staff and we are happy to talk to you about our ethos.

 

Our last SIAMS inspection was in 2015 when we were judged as 'good'.
