Our Christian Ethos

In the words of the Gospel writer, John, we believe that in everything we do at Pembridge, we aim for all our children to 'live life in all its fullness' (John 10:10). Our teaching and learning, the opportunities we provide for enriching lives through music, sport, drama and art, and how we build relationships between all members of the school community all point to ensuring our children aspire to and have the skills to achieve great things - whether now or sometime in the future.

In 2016, The Church of England published a document for schools entitled 'Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good' which identifies four strands which are an integral part of how Pembridge CE Primary School lives its Christian life:

  • Educating for Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills
  • Educating for Hope and Aspiration
  • Educating for Community and Well-being
  • Educating for Dignity and Respect

The Ethos Committee, which includes members of the Governing Body, staff, the Rector and the local community meets termly to identify how the school can fully meet its vision to provide 'inspiring learning through faith and values'. It has reflected on the school's provision to meet these four strands - do read it here.

Our Christian ethos is both a distinctive, yet inclusive, part of how our school community relates to each other, in the values we explore, through the worship we celebrate together and in our teaching and learning.
