Each half term we focus on one Christian Value. We have weekly worships relating to our current Christian Value which help us to think about how we can live out the values in our daily lives.
Our Christian Values for the academic year 2017-18 are:
Autumn term 1: Hope
Autumn term 2: Wisdom
Spring term 1: Trust
Spring term 2: Respect/Reverence
Summer term 1: Forgiveness
Summer term 2: Perseverance
We are very proud to be a ‘church’ school. We have close links with our parish church, St Mark’s, in Dolphinholme village. Cindy, our vicar, comes along each week to conduct worship and once a half term we go to St Mark’s for a Eucharist Service. We celebrate all major Christian Festivals, such as Christmas and Easter, with a special service in church.
We are a worshipping community, we have collective worship every day and spiritual life of our school is very important to us all.
Our worship (sometimes people call this ‘assembly’) is vibrant and varied!

We were judged to be ‘outstanding’ in our SIAMS inspection in November 2014.
The report says:
The Christian character of the school permeates all of the life of the school and enables the school to prosper academically, socially and spiritually.
The dynamic, outstanding Christian leadership of the headteacher drives school improvement and is well supported by staff and governors.
There are strong, supportive links between church and school which make a significant contribution to the Christian character and the spiritual development of the school community.
The quality provision for religious education (RE) and collective worship enables the children to reflect and think deeply about spiritual questions.
