CHURCH SCHOOL

At All Saints’ CE Federation, we recognise its historic foundation and will endeavour to preserve its religious character in accordance with Christian beliefs and practice whilst cultivating a sensitive and respectful attitude to other world faiths.

 

Religious Education and Collective Worship should contribute to the promotion of the school’s distinctively Christian values.  Making connections between the values and learning in RE and worship will bring about greater understanding of the values and how they can be put into practice across a range of experiences. At All Saints’ CE Federation a range of values will be looked at over the year, but particular emphasis will be placed on 4 core values that will permeate the school – Community, Courage, Thankfulness and Forgiveness.

 

We have strong links with All Saints’ church; Rev. Carol Tetley frequently visits school and supports worship. Acts of worship/services are regularly held at the church, the school choirs often sing at church related events and members of the church are voluntary helpers in our school.

 

Advice and support is also offered from the Diocese of York. Members of the Senior Leadership Team attend training, meetings and conferences to ensure the school is informed about local and national initiatives and that it retains it distinctively Christian character.

 

Our vision is clear: as part of the Christian Ethos of this school, we endeavour that every child be resilient, independent, confident, happy, enthusiastic, respectful learners – RICHER learners.

We regularly attend All Saints' Church in Hessle for many services and celebrations throughout the year. 

We encourage children to be active participants in worship and that includes contributing to and using our classroom reflection areas. 

Each Class Team invites their family members and friends to join in a worship each year. The children take the lead in worship and share our Christian value more widely.

Children's well being is of paramount importance to us at All Saints' CE Federation. Each day starts with an emotional check in and children are encouraged to talk about how they are feeling. We also took part in Hello Yellow day to raise money for a children's mental health charity. Throughout the school day we provide opportunities for children to engage, interact and reflect in a range of learning opportunities.

Being a large federation, we encourage all children to be responsible and supportive of our entire school community. Children of all ages work together at various times throughout the year.

Our school Christian Values are central to everything we do at school. Links are made across the curriculum and these are celebrated in worships. 

We recently had a Vision and Values day to create displays which reflect our values.
