Being A Church School

Being a Church School is an important part of who we are at Astley and is something we would love to share with you. It is the starting point for every aspect of school life, as we work out the ideal of loving one another and nurturing each other’s unique gifts.

Our learning, right across the curriculum, is designed to develop every aspect of the child, including the intellectual, emotional, creative, physical and spiritual.

Our daily Collective Worship is an important part of our school day and we enjoy celebrating achievements, sharing learning from our classes, welcoming visitors and reflecting on aspects of the Christian faith.

We visit St. Peter's Church, Astley several times a year for church services, including Harvest, Christmas and Easter, and the walk back to school along the beautiful lanes is popular too!

Reverend Mark Turner and Reverend Josie Calam support our R.E. lessons and Collective Worship.

R.E. lessons give our children a vital experience of world religions, alongside developing a sound understanding of Christianity, so that each can form their own views about the world and how they connect to it.

We encourage our children to be both compassionate and generous and have opportunities throughout the year to think and help others, including those in our locality and much farther afield. This includes fund raising for a number of charities as well as supporting Poppy Day and visiting the community with Harvest gifts.
