Brenzett Church of England Primary School
The school is a voluntary controlled Church of England mixed infant and junior day school, catering for children aged between the 4 and 11. As a voluntary church school we encourage Christian fellowship with the emphasis on the creation and maintenance of a caring community, whilst encouraging sensitivity towards other faiths. The school is a friendly place with a very special atmosphere and good academic standards. The new school building was opened in May 2002 and offers modern eco-friendly accommodation for the staff and children comprising five classrooms, special educational needs room, large hall, kitchen, library and IT suite, together with staff and administration areas. Outside the reception and year 1 children enjoy their own play area, there is a large playground with netball court and large playing field, all classrooms also have the benefit of an outside teaching area.
Prospective parents are invited to visit the school. If you would like to arrange a visit please contact the school secretary who will be pleased to make an appointment for you.
The School's aims, values and ethos
We aim to provide a caring, happy environment in which every child's full potential is fostered and encouraged, physically, intellectually, socially and morally, where all can extend their abilities and become enthusiastic and interested in all they do.
We encourage the growth of personal qualities which will enable the children to make good personal relationships both now and in the years ahead.
We aim to foster a spirit of friendship and unity within the school, and from this strong foundation help children to be sensitive to religious differences and the faiths and cultures of others.
We help the children achieve the best of their ability and aim for the highest standards in every aspect of the life of the school.
We encourage the children to appreciate the excitement of learning and discovery.
We give our children a sound beginning, encourage them to use their initiative and help them to cope with change and new direction as their future unfolds.
As a Church of England school we do not try to force the Christian faith upon the children, but we do hope they will discover something about Christianity as they experience the teaching and character of the school.
We place great importance on developing a sense of awe, mystery and wonder throughout our teaching and collective worship in order to promote the spiritual growth of the children.
