"We believe at the heart of our deanery community are the values of our Christian foundation. We believe as a group of church schools that learning and growing in a caring Christian environment will strengthen the values, and personal beliefs, of our pupils, equipping them for living life fully in the 21st Century “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7: 8. As a group of church schools, we want to strengthen our Christian distinctiveness by working closely together and serving one another. We recognise the value of working collaboratively for the good of all our children and the wider school community. In a spirit of openness and generosity we aim to; • Share ideas and good practice across the curriculum • Develop creative opportunities for children to explore their faith • Nurture Christian distinctiveness across our schools • Support, challenge and encourage each another professionally through close cooperation, we seek to embrace our Christian foundations, build one another up and grow spiritually as a community of schools."
