School Improvement

Christ Church is a caring school with a strong sense of community. We value the uniqueness of every child and are committed to a fully inclusive learning environment.


 With Christ at our centre, we encourage all children to grow and learn surrounded by love and a feeling of belonging. We strongly believe that every child matters, value all individuals and celebrate diversity.


We want our children to become confident, resilient, independent learners with a strong sense of self-worth and a caring attitude towards others.   


We encourage all children to 'Have faith...’ in themselves, in others and in God, as we believe that

"Nothing will be impossible with God."

Luke 1:37


We are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum which provides rich opportunities for children to explore a range of subjects, thus developing a variety of knowledge, skills and interests which they can apply to opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in later life.


We value the individuality of our children and their various curriculum strengths and interests. As a school, we aim to provide opportunities for children to build upon these to become the best that they can be. This is underpinned by our curriculum mission statement:


“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

1 Peter 4: 10


All stakeholders are fully committed to improving the quality of teaching and learning and individuals are keen to improve.
