The Churchill School
"We want our children to achieve the highest standards possible, not only academically, but emotionally, socially, and spiritually. To be the best that they can be."
Our values are the bedrock of all we do and reflect the strong Christian ethos of the school. They have been chosen by the staff and children of Churchill School to support us in becoming the people that God designed us to be. We aspire to demonstrate them in all aspects of school life.
To provide an excellent academic grounding, ensuring high levels of success for children in core areas of Reading, Writing and Mathematics and explicit teaching around becoming an effective life-long learner.
To develop in children a love of learning through an exciting, rigorous and challenging curriculum, encompassing Humanities, Sports and The Arts, as well as a wide-ranging extra-curricular offer.
To ensure children thrive by providing excellent pastoral care and family support, whilst promoting outstanding character education and equipping children with the tools they need to ensure their own positive mental health and wellbeing.
To nurture children who have a sound moral compass, underpinned by Christian teaching, are empathetic to those around them, socially responsible and have the courage to do right in the world, even when this is not the popular option.
To help us understand to what extent we are achieving our vision, we have created pen-profiles for different stakeholders which reflect our ambitions.
By the time they leave at age eleven, our children are curious, resilient and self-motivated individuals who developed the foundations for life-long love of learning.
They have acquired excellent academic skills in core subjects, enabling them to succeed from the outset in their secondary education.
They have learnt the social skills and emotional intelligence, which enable communication, co-operation, adaptability and respect to underpin their interactions and decision making as they move towards adulthood.
They are compassionate and kind to those around them, recognise right from wrong and are unafraid to do the right thing, even when it is not the popular option.
Our parents feel warmly welcomed into the school community, regardless of their circumstances.

When asked, their views on the school are positive and where difficulties arise, they feel confident that these will be listened to and resolved. They are our biggest advocates in the community.
Our staff are creative, innovative individuals who consistently go the extra-mile, whole-heartedly comitted to excellence in education and achieving the best for every child.
