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
Though every Christian Value is covered over a half term in Collective Worship, we also focus in depth on a specific Christian Value each half term. For this academic year (2019-2020) we will begin with Generosity and then each half term will cover the following in order:- Compassion, Justice, Forgiveness, Trust and Courage. We will begin to ask children and staff to demonstrate and discuss when they have shown each value in their school and home lives. These values underpin all of our work at school and in our daily lives
Dates for any Church services where parents are invited will be on the school newsletter.
