Links with our Church
As you will probably already know, Withycombe Raleigh Primary School is a “Church of England” School. The connection between schools and the church is a long and I trust happy one.
Historically, the church was one of the few institutions which believed that universal education for children, rather than long hours of heavy manual work was a good idea. I hope and trust also, that the relationship is mutually beneficial: certainly it is for us locally.
It is always a pleasure to come into school either for collective worship or to join the children for lessons, or the have the school or parts of it in church for various events throughout the year.
As a church school, we have a distinctive Christian ethos which speaks of the importance of everyone regardless of income or ability recognizing as it does that every one of us is precious in the sign of God, and there to one another.
You do not have to be a Christian, to either work in the school or be a pupil of the school, we are a genius community school, here for everyone, but I hope that our Christian ethos is one that people of all faiths and none could subscribe to, because living in such a way helps our children to grow and learn in a safer, happier and more secure environment, and will help them build a better world.
