Holy Apostles’ Values and Ethos


Holy Apostles’ Church or England (Aided) Primary School provides high quality educational opportunities to all members of the school community promoted by our Christian foundation. This is especially evident within religious education, collective worship and the values and ethos of a curriculum which seeks to offer opportunities and experiences to promote pupils’ spiritual and moral development and to provide a strong basis for their lifelong learning.


Our Ethos

Holy Apostles’ Church of England Primary School provides the highest quality education within the context of caring Christian beliefs and practices, in close affiliation with Holy Apostles’ Church. Our curriculum connects home, school and church, and reinforces the fact that the values we celebrate in school shape the whole of our children’s lives. Children, of any faith or none, are given the opportunity to develop their own spirituality, to be curious and ask big questions, to celebrate and to make good choices.

At Holy Apostles’ the children are at the heart of everything we do. Each and every child is cherished and given the best educational opportunities in order that they can realise their potential.

The governors and staff at Holy Apostles’ School are proud of its Christian Foundation.  All staff are committed to continuing professional development and are supported by the governors in this.
