Being a distinctly Christian school, 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 2021/22 are:
Autumn term 1: Hope
“May the God of Hope fill you with great joy and peace as you trust in him.” Romans 15:13
Autumn term 2: Wisdom
“Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house upon the rock.” Matthew 7:24
Spring term 1: Trust
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God.” John 14:1
Spring term 2: Respect and Reverence
“Do to others as you would have them do unto you.” Luke 6:31
Summer term 1: Forgiveness
“Forgive each other as Christ has forgiven you.” Colossians 3:13
Summer term 2: Perseverance
“Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1
We are very proud to be a ‘church’ school. We have close links with our parish church, St Mark’s, in Dolphinholme village. Rev. Cindy and Rev. Chris come along each week to conduct worship and once a 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 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.
