Hulland School

A Church School

 

Click here for a letter from the Diocese following our recent SIAMS inspection ( June 2015). Key comments are:

The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is good at meeting the needs of all learners. ‘Children come first’ is the school’s motto and is the central feature which together with its values, gives the school its distinctive Christian character.

The staff have high expectations and are passionate about meeting the needs of each individual pupil and as a result, all the pupils make good progress from their different starting points. The pupils feel valued and safe and enjoy coming to school. They say it is a special place where everyone knows everyone else and the teachers make lessons fun.

The Headteacher leads the school through her strong, clear vision and this has enabled the school to develop its effectiveness during her headship. The focus on clearly articulated Christian values in the school community has raised the school’s profile as a Church of England school and as a school at the heart of the community.

Parents are proud of the school and make a strong contribution to all aspects of its life. They describe the school’s inclusiveness and Christian ethos as the best start for any child, a place where every child feels valued and special.

Hulland School at church

Hulland School is a Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) School, with two foundation Governors representing the Church. One of these is the Rev Phil Michell who encourages close links with Christ Church Parish Church. The church website can be accessed here.

Rev Phil regularly leads collective worship in school, whilst the children come to the church for services on several occasions during the year, including their Christmas and Harvest services. A team of lay people present 'Open the Book,' bringing Bible stories to life in school.

There are many informal links between Church and School - the children usually take part in the Mothering Sunday service and sing at the Christmas Fair, and take part in various joint fundraising activities.

Church links help the children to become familiar with Christian worship, values and traditions within the larger context of the many beliefs and spiritualities in society.

We wish to reassure parents that our lessons and assemblies are not designed to convert pupils or urge particular beliefs but to promote understanding and respect for a wide variety of faiths and approaches.
