Our School

Mission Statement

'Learning to live, loving to learn'

Our Ethos

This is a place where we value all children and give them a sense of security and self worth. Here we help each child to develop personal, spiritual and moral strengths, reflecting our identity as a Church School.

We sensitively challenge our children to produce their best in an atmosphere of praise, encouragement, happiness and fun. In this way pupils develop the necessary skills and confidence to enjoy the world of learning. 

We work in close partnership with families and the community, helping the child to mature socially and showing them ways to help others.

Our values

Our St Alphege Values are routed in the gospel and teachings of Christ. The six St Alphege Values are: 

Koinonia

Forgiveness

Trust

Kindness

Love

Joy

 

We learn about:

  • Building a strong and supportive Community (Koinonia)
  • How to ask for and show Forgiveness
  • Trust is essential to human life and is at the heart of all relationships.
  • Kindness and being kind to one another is an important part of building a strong community.
  • The importance of Love in our world and lives.
  • Discovering our inner contentment, enjoyment of life and happiness with others so that we can share our Joy with the world.
