Last Sunday was a special day for Education throughout all Christian churches in England and Wales. Education Sunday is a National Day of Prayer and celebration for everyone involved in the world of education. It is especially important this year as Christ the King Primary School celebrates its 50th Birthday. Our parish school is a very special place which has encouraged all learners over last fifty years to reach their full potential in all aspects of school life, always building upon strong foundations. I feel in a very privileged position to be leading our parish school during this exciting time of challenge and change in schools and education especially working in partnership with St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Bradley Stoke.
Our school community is a strong vibrant one where children are well supported by a dedicated, strong team of teachers, support staff and governors working alongside our Parish and with the surrounding community. In our school, our aim is that everyone within the community can experience the words of our Mission Statement, “Make a difference today by inspiring others through our love of life and learning. We built strong foundations within God’s loving hands”. As a school we work hard to ensure all our children develop and flourish in the light of Christ.
Christ the King children are very happy and enjoy learning. They treat everyone in our school community and beyond with kindness and respect. They learn in a positive climate that fosters self-esteem, where all children are valued and where learning is fun, engaging and challenging with high expectations. Our children become confident in their abilities so that they can use their gifts to the full. With our children at the heart of all that we do, we aim to foster a love of learning and a sense of belonging and responsibility to our school, parish and the wider community in which we live. We endeavour to help them build strong foundations as they embark on their own learning journeys and participate in the wider world, with values of community, diversity, individuality and to be young people who will live God’s gift of life to the full.
We would like to invite the parish to our special 50th celebrations Mass on Friday 28th September at 10:00 and after school from 15.00-17.00, with an opportunity to look around the school and to join us in marking this special milestone.
