Religious Life at Gayton Primary School
‘All things are possible to one who believes ‘Mark 9: v23'
At Gayton Primary School, Religious Education is far more than just an academic subject. In keeping with our mission statement, everyone is valued as an individual and helped to develop and progress in their own unique way within a Christian environment. Our vision ‘Small enough to care, Large enough to inspire, Valuing All God’s children’ is at the core of everything we do.
Through explicit teaching about Jesus and the Church, and the development of prayer and worship in school, we provide daily experiences where children live the gospel values; have respect for the opinions and beliefs of others, and grow in their own faith. We see this as our core purpose, and alongside their formation as children of God, we strive to ensure that each child fulfils their God-given potential -academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.
We are lucky to have very close links with our Parish Church which is only a short walk away. The children regularly attend St Mary’s Church, at least once each half-term, as well as celebrating together at significant liturgical moments in the year. Cannon Karen Jongman is a regular visitor to our school, supporting in classes and delivering a whole school assembly every month.
