Our Values

Each year group at Christ the Sower has a special value, rooted in the Christian ethos. Over the year, the children learn how to put that value into practice so that it supports their development and character.

 Every year, we begin the Autumn Term with an opportunity to explore our values which we celebrate in collective worship and live on a daily basis.

Vision Statement

At Christ the Sower Ecumenical Primary School we provide the ‘good earth’ for all our children to flourish; where every child can learn and explore who they are created to be, with the high expectation that we, individually and collectively, will enable every child to be and do the best they can. 

A loving place where we all care, learn and grow together.
