Being a Church School
“A caring, family ethos is apparent in the school and pupils show very responsible attitudes in their care and support for one another.” Church School Inspection Report 2010.
"All stakeholders recognise and speak openly of the inclusive and nurturing Christian ethos which envelops this community. This is described by one pupil as 'something you can simply feel all around you like a blanket making you feel warm and safe'". Church School Inspection Report March 2015
Being a Church School is really important to us. We have been serving the Portishead Community for over 200 years and want to continue to do so many years to come. Our partnership with Portishead Church of England, and in particular with, St Peter’s Parish Church is active and strong, and enriches the lives of all in our community. In our most recent Church school inspection we were graded as an Outstanding Church School. You can read this report below.
We welcome all regardless of faith or belief. We aim to value faith and encourage reflection on Christian values and tradition within the wider context of collective worship and the whole curriculum.
Collective worship is a very important part of each day and we have a variety of different types of events during the week (whole school, key stage, and class). Please see our collective worship policy for more details.
We embed Christian values within our curriculum and also in our collective worship. Every term children in each year group consider one of the following values:
Peace and Forgiveness
We regularly welcome clergy from the parish in to school for collective worship and RE lessons and we regularly visit St Peter’s Church for festivals, RE and other cross curricular events.
