Our Church School

We warmly welcome you to our school!  We work together to live our life to its fullness according to John 10:10 and believe that in Jesus’s light we can truly live out our special Christian values.  We are a caring, family school whose vision goes far to include all children no matter who they are.  Have a look below at what we have been working on this year!

We told the story of Joseph and his amazing coat (and brothers!) in our assembly today - Etta was a fantastic Joesph and the "brothers" ad-libbed the story to perfection!  We all learnt about saying sorry and putting things right as good friends. [gallery...

Valentines Day 2022

Happy Valentines Day!  Today, we were discussing what love really is.  Is it a card and a box of chocolates or is it caring for someone (ironing, helping with reading, sorting stuff for forest school and so on...).  Is it both?  What would we do without it? [gallery...

Values.

We are “Learning together to be the best that we can be!” We live out our values each day knowing that in John 10:10 it says: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly or life in all its fullness.

We aim to live out our values through dignity and kindness and hope that this permeates through every aspect of school life in Powerstock. We are a family community where everyone knows each other well and strives to help each other be their best self. We look outside of our very small school and think about others in our work and play through our work for Water Aid and our lovely local food bank – Cupboard Love. We are passionate about our planet and our School Council is working hard to help the school get the message to our community – all this work starts with our wonderful pupils – their voices should be heard!
