Wickhambreaux Church of England Primary School is built upon a tradition of providing quality education within a Christian context. We strive to promote the values of our Christian faith through our links with the Church and in our daily life. We hope to achieve our aims through partnership between governors, staff, children, parents and parish. We provide a wide range of learning opportunities for all children to help them grow into independent and responsible young people. We firmly believe that we can only achieve the best for our children by fostering a close relationship that creates co-operation between home and school. We have an open door policy and provide many opportunites to share in your child's education. We hope that you will share with us in making this a happy and successful period in your child's life,
Promote Christian values and to provide opportunities for the worship of God; these values are reflected in the five New Testament stories selected by the school to illustrate them:
The Good Samaritan, helps us to understand to love our neighbours as we love ourselves.
The Prodigal Son, demonstrates God's love for each individual and His personal attentiveness towards all humanity.
The Centurion's Servant, shows faith in the power and omnipresence of the Lord's Word.
