‘Pupils' outstanding spiritual and personal development results from the experiences provided through the creative curriculum, first -rate Religious Education(RE) and high quality collective worship.'



The Mission of St Anne’s C of E School is to develop the whole child; spiritually, mentally and physically in a caring, Christian environment through close links to Church and community.

“Let all that you do be done in Love”

1 Corinthians 16:14.

St Anne’s strives to “develop the whole child spiritually, mentally and physically” by helping pupils to:

  • Love God
  • Love learning and
  • Love themselves and others

St Anne's School is located next to the Church and enjoys very close links with the Church.  The Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools report in 2019 commented on:

'St Anne’s is a school that lives out its vision and values. ‘The school invest in our families – all work together as one’ explained one parent. As a consequence this Christian community enables all to prosper, knowing that they are loved by God and each other.'

'Extremely strong, mutually beneficial links with the local church contribute significantly to the school’s distinctive Christian character.'

Our School Values

We have six Christian Values that are embedded in school life.

Each value is displayed in our hall as below and in every classroom. The children at St Anne's are encouraged to live out each value daily. 

At St Anne's we believe that it is not enough to talk about the core values and know what the Bible says about them. The Christian faith tells us that human beings are created in the image of God, and that we should all use our power, skills and resources for the good of all, thus we need to put our beliefs into action.

We strive to ensure that our values are lived out in the day to day life of the school community and beyond. We promote a value each half term as follows;

Autumn 1 - Perseverance

Autumn 2 - Responsibility

Spring 1 - Forgiveness

Spring 2 - Acceptance

Summer 1 -Honesty

Summer 2 - Respect
