Welcome and Vision

“To be the best we can be for

ourselves and others” 

This is illustrated by the parable the Good Samaritan. (Luke 10:25-37) who showed compassion, respect and courage. 


We aim for all individuals to SHINE as children of God, within our ever changing world to be the best we can be for ourselves and for others.


 Succeed with perseverance ~ Happy with respect and honesty ~ Independent and courageous ~  Nurtured with compassion ~ Excited with teamwork




We are very proud of our school family, our vision enables all children to 'be the best they can be' and SHINE. We foster learning that develops children's personal, social and emotional skills, developing and sustaining well-being as well as equipping them with skills for the future. 

“Your welcoming approach and lively interest in each family helps pupils to settle quickly”

“Pupils’ well-being is given the highest priority”

“Pupils attain high standards at the end of key stage 1.”

“Standards at the end of Year 6 are usually in line with or above national figures”


I am proud to be the Headteacher at St Christopher's CE School where the vision of 'being the best' lies at the heart of everything we do.

We believe everyone has the right to SHINE through a broad and balanced curriculum that is full of exciting learning opportunities. 


If you would like to come and look around our beautiful school in the heart of the countryside then please get in touch.

"I really love how much the school involve the children in a range of activities and school events, whether it’s singing as part of a raffle, giving tour guides by the children, or taking part in class videos, it’s such a lovely family feel where everyone can be involved and is celebrated. All teachers do such an amazing job and bring so much energy and dedication to what they do" Parent Quote December 2022 



School Development Priorities 2022-2023 


  • SEN

Numbers are rising and are above national average, Number of children with an EHCP, full time team of staff return, and we want to continue to develop effective monitoring systems and quality of interventions 

  • Assessment

As a school we need to develop the use of target tracker to monitor vulnerable groups. To assess core subjects including RE – using the statements. Subject leaders to use target tracker to analyse pupil progress including specific groups. To refresh staff to use TT as a summative assessment tool in order to inform our formative assessments 3 times a year. (Long term)

  • Wider Curriculum

To continue to develop the implementation of the curriculum across school – adhering to the new progression maps. ‘Deep dive’ subject leader meetings to include triangulation.

  • SPAG

Implement a systematic approach to spelling across school to include home learning.
