St Agnes C of E Voluntary Aided Primary School is proud to offer to its pupils an education, which is intellectually, socially, morally, aesthetically, physically and spiritually based on Christian values. We encourage each child to develop a sense of curiosity and excitement about the world, ensuring that the curriculum provides a Christian setting in which children can grow in understanding and the acquisition of skills, attitudes and values.
All members of our School, pupils, teaching staff and non-teaching staff are to be valued and treated with mutual respect, thus promoting a healthy self-esteem.
Our School seeks to create strong links between school, home, Church and parish, providing pupils with the necessary preparation for their entry into the wider community.
Our aim is to create a Christian ethos within this Church of England school by encouraging pupils to have a caring attitude for one another and for members of staff, thus generating a family atmosphere in this small school environment.
Pupils are taught to:- ‘Treat others as you want to be treated yourself’ Matthew 7 v12.
It is also important for staff to work together as a team so as to provide a good example to pupils and also for staff to be seen to treat pupils fairly.
