We have close links with the Church of England, the Diocese of Durham and St. Michael and All Angels Church. Reverend Michael Peers visits school on a weekly basis to deliver Collective Worship. At Esh Church of England (Voluntary Aided) Primary School, adults and children are all encouraged to model Christian Values and give time to reflective practices. We believe these values are empowering our pupils to develop their spirituality and guiding them in personal development as effective learners and good citizens.
Our core values are Respect, Wisdom, Thankfulness, Hope, Service, Trust, Compassion, Forgiveness, Justice, Friendship, Endurance, Humility, Reverence and Creation. These values underpin all of our work at school and in our daily lives; leading to peace and harmony. Koinonia is the fellowship we all share together.
As we begin to learn about Easter in our worship this half term, most of the Christian values will be covered. We begin by looking at Justice as we find out about Fairtrade. You are warmly welcomed to attend any of our school services, Messy Church or Eucharists and we look forward to seeing you in church. Dates for any Church services will be on the school newsletter.
