Mark 28:19

"So go and make followers of people in the world."

Faith Committee

The Faith Committee is responsible to ensure that the distinctiveness and effectiveness of a church school is maintained and enhanced.  They monitor and support the spiritual and moral development of our children and staff.  At the beginning of each year they help devise the programme of collective worship and the RE curriculum, and monitor the quality of RE teaching.

The Committee consists of the Headteacher, the RE leader, the vicar, the school chaplain and link governors. 

Activities of the Faith Group have included:

  • To keep under review the SIAMS self-evaluation toolkit
  • To monitor and evaluate the Christian distinctiveness, alongside the Children’s Faith Group, by conducting pupil interviews, book-looks and ethos walks.
  • To keep under review the policies and RE and Collective Worship and advise on the implementation of these policies.
  • To foster and develop links between the church and the school.
  • To keep the Governing Body informed of the above.
