Church of England Distinctiveness
We are a voluntary controlled Church of England school, belonging to the Diocese of Ely. This means that we have close links with our local church as well as being part of the local and wider community.
Each day children and staff partake in acts of Collective Worship that are Christian in character. Obviously, parents do have the statutory right under Section 71 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 to withdraw their children from RE lessons and acts of Collective Worship but we really do encourage all children to be part of these times as they are fundamental to building our school community.

Our Christian Vision:
Our purpose is to sustain - within a Christian environment - the highest standards in academic, intellectual, creative, social and personal spheres where everyone learns and achieves whilst supporting and encouraging each other.
- We try to treat each other as we would expect to be treated ourselves.
- We try to build each other up as highlighted in the Bible.
- We try to live in harmony within our community.
We are very lucky to have the support of Revd. David Cleugh who is the Rector for the Three Rivers Group (the parishes of Chippenham, Fordham, Isleham, Kennett and Snailwell). He is also a member of our school governing body. We are also supported by Revd. Sue Potts who visits weekly to lead Collective Worship each Wednesday.
Throughout the year, we have a range of visitors and events that support our Christian vision. We explore other faiths during RE lessons so that children are taught to question and enquire about the world around them.
"...we are all members of one body...do not let the sun go down while you are still angry." (Ephesians 4:25/26)
