In our opinion as parents, St Botolph’s is an OUTSTANDING Primary School. The entire team of teachers and support staff have continually endeavored to challenge our child and sympathetically support his individual needs. The positive ‘can do’ ethos that exists within this school has facilitated tremendous progress in all aspects of his education….Our son says “I love my school”, that says it all!
We worked closely with our Foundation Governors in deciding on our core Christian values.
Our 6 Christian values are important and are seen as essential in establishing our school ethos:
Creation – We celebrate and enjoy the world in all its diversity.
Community –We nurture positive relationships within the school and wider community.
Compassion – We support one another, sharing experiences.
Endurance – We persevere in the face of hardship and never give up.
Responsibility – We share a collective responsibility for our world, community and the people in it.
Trust – Trust lies at the heart of the relationships within our school.
These have become the core values that permeate the whole ethos of the school and the values we want to drive us in our lives.
Our daily Acts of Worship / Assemblies continue to be led and supported by members of the Church on at least a monthly basis.
In addition, we hold our Harvest and Easter celebration services in Church and also utilise the beautiful Church for our Key Stage 1& 2 Christmas performances and end of Y6 St Bafta's award ceremony. We also write a monthly article for the Parish magazine – an article written by the children in each class throughout the year.
We always support and promote annual Church events through our school newsletter and attendance at events such as the Christmas tree festival, Christingle service and Rotary concerts. In addition, our Foundation Governors continue to support us in a formal and informal capacity through their regular visits to the school and support during our visits to Church.
Over the last few years we have further strengthened our work with the Church - we have our loyal ‘early bird’ readers – members of the Church congregation who regularly come in to school to hear our children read.
In March 2016 we received an Outstanding SIAMS Inspection. Click here to see a copy of the report.
