Church School Ethos.

Our children are Stutton STARS  (let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds)  

Matthew 5:16

Our vision for education is aligned with Church of England Vision for Education.

At Stutton Church of England School, we greatly value our link with St Peter's Church and the local diocese. We work alongside them to ensure that we offer a spiritual dimension to the lives of young people. 

The children love working with Reverend Jenny and her team.

We visit the church twice each term to celebrate Christian festivals and special occasions including Easter, Christmas and Harvest. We enjoy welcoming in visitors form the church, including Reverend Jenny, on a fortnightly basis to lead collective worship. We are inclusive and serve equally those who are of the Christian faith, of other faiths and of no faith. Each year we celebrate Interfaith Week.  


Religious Education and World Views is taught using the Emmanuael Project- at the heart of this teaching in Church Schools is Christianity, but pupils  learn about and are taught to understand and respect other faiths and world views. Our collective worship is invitational and gives pupils a choice to join in the prayer or reflect on the words and message.


We place a great deal of importance on encouraging children to live our Christian values at school - values that we believe will help create academically, emotionally and socially successful children and adults. This focus on specific values is an excellent strength of the school and something that we hold in great importance. We use our values to promote positive behaviours and attitudes at the school. 

Our Rainbow.

We have chosen the rainbow symbol to represent our Christian values.


The rainbow symbol can be a sign of love, peace, acceptance, promise and cooperation.  In Genesis we hear of God’s promise to the world, “I am putting my bow in the clouds. It will be the sign of my covenant with the world’ (9:13)


The colours of the rainbow represent diversity and inclusion - ‘life in all its fullness’ .  Colours bring joy to our lives, they represent feelings and emotions, seasons and events in the passage of time.  


The arch of the rainbow represents belonging and community - ‘for the common good of the whole community'   We know that it is through human interaction that we can find our purpose and meaning in life.  


When we see a rainbow in the sky we are reminded that we are loved and cared for, that every human is unique and that our planet is precious.
