Being a Church of England Federation

 Learning to Love God and Love our Neighbour as Ourselves.”




























Our Federation and Our Church


Our aims and values are firmly based on Christian principles and in particular we wish to promote racial harmony and social cohesion in our local community.


“Learning to Love God and Love our Neighbour as Ourselves.”


We are proud to be federated Church of England academies at the heart of                                                 the community of Whitchurch.


An inclusive family under God, welcoming everyone into our friendly,                                                 respectful and caring Federation.

We aim to provide an aspirational curriculum and supportive working                                             environment to enable every individual to reach their full potential.

“Learning to Love God and Love our Neighbour as Ourselves”

Luke 10: 25-37

As Federated Church of England Academies, we believe it is important to develop Christian values by which to live well together and which help to develop a moral and spiritual awareness.


Our core Christian value is Love. Across our Federation everyone is encouraged to love and respect themselves, others, God and his world. The Bible tells us that,

“God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”

(1 John 4:16).



The value of ‘Love’ underpins everything we do in our Federation. We believe that through a focus on Love, by working together as part of a strong and supportive family, we can all achieve more ;

“Love your neighbour as yourself.”

(Luke 10:27)

The Good Samaritan



Helps us to foster a nurturing environment, supporting one another, promoting empathy and inclusivity.

(Luke 5: 17-26)

Jesus Heals A Paralytic Man


Gives us the skills to face challenges, take risks and develop resilience and encourage personal growth.

(1 Samuel 17 1-58) – David and Goliath

(Daniel 6:1-28) – Daniel in the Lion’s Den



Creates a positive, harmonious atmosphere, fosters empathy, friendship and a sense of belonging.

“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”

(Luke 6: 27-31)



Teaches us the importance of determination and hard work. Helps us to overcome obstacles and achieve our goals.

The Journey of the Magi

(Matthew 2: 1-12)



Helps us to treat others with kindness and listen and consider everyone’s feelings. It is important we are all valued.

Show proper respect to everyone.

(1 Peter: 2-17)
























Collective Worship
It is a statutory requirement for all church schools and academies to hold a daily act of Collective Worship. This is a good opportunity for us to meet as a whole family and take time to think and reflect. Our Collective Worship may take a range of forms such as celebrating success, welcoming members of the clergy or sharing work with others. We focus on a different Christian Value each half term



Our Church

We have strong connections with our church in Whitchurch, St Alkmunds. The children visit the church regularly to take part in festivals which bring the school and local community together.



















Our Trust and Digital Worship


Across St Bart's Multi-Academy Trust we have a number of Church schools and they are very supportive of the church schools and ethos.


Christian Distinctiveness from St Bart’s Academy Trust

St Bart’s Academy Trust have a passion for releasing potential in all our children and staff through the encouragement and development of ambition, aspiration and excellence in all aspects of our work.


Our commitment is to place children at the centre of everything we do. Working in collaboration, we strive to provide the highest quality of educational experience and outcomes for our young people in an inclusive environment. Through the enjoyment of learning, we live life together in all its fullness through PEACE.


We believe this vision empowers children with the skills to make a positive impact on the future of the communities they serve.

For our Trust schools this means life in all its fullness is a life lived for God, serving others.

Our vision is in line with the Church of England’s mission that our education is deeply Christian, with Jesus’ promise of ‘life in all its fullness’ at its heart.

​Our vision is for the common good of the whole community.

Within each of our flourishing family of church schools through their own theologically rooted Christian vision they encompass the Trust vision.


St Bart’s Academy Trust Church Schools decided that each school would record a worship to share with the other schools. We are very proud to record and produce our digital worships.


Talk with God and Reflection Areas

As a Church of England Federation we understand the importance of allowing our pupils to have time to reflect, think and pray in their own ways. The infant department pupils have Talk with God areas in the classrooms, this then transfers into Reflection Areas seen in the junior department classrooms; these are for children to think about God, reflect on teachings and stories of the Bible and to also ask questions or write prayers.
