At Elworth CE Primary school we believe in the Church of England's vision for education which is 'Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good.' Education should enable children to flourish and reach their full God given potential. To do this fully we need to develop children's characters so that they not only succeed academically but flourish in life skills. This is the basis of Character education; a concept of lifelong learning where pupils live out the virtues they encounter and learning to take their place as active global citizens. Our hope is that every child will become courageous advocates for change. We aspire that all our children are a blessing beyond the school walls, beyond their families, beyond their local community, as global citizens. To achieve this the children and adults at Elworth embark on an exciting and adventurous journey together joining in with God's redemptive work in the world and learn to be advocates for change.
All the staff here at Elworth create a stimulating and caring environment, grounded in Christian belief and practice, so that all members of our school community can flourish. We maintain that learning should be a rewarding experience for everyone; it should be enjoyable. Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives.
'Love God, Love Learning, Love one another.' Matt 22:34-36
We are a partnership of school, home, church and the community. Children are at the heart of our successful school, where staff, governors and families all contribute to our vibrant learning community through support, shared knowledge, enthusiasm and mutual respect.
'Aspire not to have more but be more.' Archbishop Romero
As a school we value our Christian distinctiveness. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of children is our priority. Developing a child's character is at the heart of every learning experience; real academic progress is underpinned by the ability to be responsible, resilient, respectful and reflective - key traits of all learning experiences at school.
