Welcome to St Helen’s School
Welcome to St Helen’s Church of England VA Primary School. Our aims are “Loving Learning, Loving God, Loving our Neighbour.”
These aims, written in consultation with the pupils, parents, staff and governors of the school are ones that certainly set a challenge. Every time I read it, I take a deep breath- the gauntlet has been truly thrown down to not only provide a continuing outstanding learning environment for the pupils of the school but to live out Jesus’ summation of the commandments daily in our lives.
A dedicated staff and governing body, brilliant children and highly supportive parents all contribute to making St. Helen’s the special place that it is. Together we make a journey to live out our aims. This journey defines us: of working, living, learning and being together in Christ.
St. Helen’s is currently undergoing a large amount of change- physically we have recently expanded by 4 new classrooms built on one of our playgrounds. As a consequence, over the next few years we will have more staff and even more- 33% more- children. However, one thing remains- our passion for learning and each other.
Being a part of the St. Helen’s family is a real privilege. Hopefully this website will give you a small window into our school. If you’d like to see even more, then I would be delighted to welcome you and to show you around our school.
