Whitchurch Church of England Primary School will always be a loving school where children are safe, motivated to learn by an inspirational curriculum and where standards are high. Christian Values will be implicit and explicit in every facet of school life. In Collective Worship and Religious Education, our children enquire and explore questions arising from the study of Christianity and other major world beliefs. Using a variety of creative techniques such as poetry and art, children apply this knowledge to their own search for identity and significance.

The former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, wrote,

'Church schools know that their viscera is not just about acquiring skills and good examination results.  It is about forming people who have the moral strength and spiritual depth to hold to a course and weather ups and downs.  It is about forming people who know that economic competition is not more important than family life and love of neighbour, and that technical innovation is not more important than reverence for the beauty of creation.  It is about forming a people who, however academically and technically skilled, are not reduced to inarticulate embarrassment by the great questions of life and death, meaning and truth.'
