We are extremely proud to be part of Christ the King Catholic Primary School, a Catholic Voluntary Academy, working alongside a hard-working, dedicated and committed staff and governing body. We will endeavour to build on the many successes of our school and look forward to leading Christ the King into a new and exciting era.
Christ the King is a caring and friendly school which has the Gospel values at its core. The Catholic ethos is palpable throughout the school as Christ is at the centre of everything we do. That is why our mission statement is woven into every aspect of school life:
“Christ be our light and our guide.”
We are deeply committed to promoting the strong relationship between home, school and Parish as we feel that this partnership is the key to producing the best possible Catholic education for your child, within and beyond the classroom. We work hard using our God given talents for the good of other people and to achieve our best. In our school community, we show respect to every person. Together with our families, our parish and our local community we strive to create a safe, happy school and become confident, caring citizens.
It is a privilege to be entrusted with your child’s education and at Christ the King every pupil is precious to us. We know that each child is unique and special and therefore we ensure that our curriculum meets the needs of all our children and is carefully matched to their differing abilities.
We have high expectations of all our pupils both academically and in terms of behaviour. Our aim is to inspire and motivate our children to unlock their full potential. We encourage our pupils to think critically and to develop a growth mindset so that they view challenges as opportunities to learn.
Choosing the right school for your child is an extremely difficult decision, so we warmly welcome you and your child to visit our school and see us at work, at play and in prayer.
If you already have a child with us, we are delighted to strengthen links between us. The staff work hard to provide a stimulating environment and to enable the children to fulfil their potential. We recognise that as parents you are your child’s first educators and we encourage you to share in the life of the school, to help to provide a happy, caring atmosphere in which the children will feel secure and nurtured. It is important that mutual understanding and trust should be the basis of our shared responsibility.
