St Helen's CE Primary School Vision statement


Hebrews 6:10 (NIV)

“God will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.”

We work together to understand, show and share God’s love. Adults and children act with honesty and kindness, appreciate each other’s differences and love their neighbours. We strive to approach all learning with a positive attitude, a sense of collaboration and a desire to achieve.

At St Helen's we welcome families of all faiths and none. As a Church of England school our trust deed requires that pupils are educated in accordance with the teaching and principles of the Church of England. This requires that our curriculum is based on Christian beliefs, principles and values. We aim to achieve this through:-

Collective Worship

Children take part in some form of Christian worship on a daily basis. This can vary from classroom values time to whole school worship led by a member of St Helen's Church of England Team, members of staff and outside visitors. Further details of worship can be seen in our Collective Worship Policy. 

Religious Education

R.E is taught in accordance with the Hertfordshire County Council agreed syllabus and Diocesan guidelines. Each year group will explore Christianity and one other faith in detail. Each year children will visit a place of worship related to their studies; this can vary from St Alban's Cathedral to a Buddhist Temple.

Values Curriculum  

Every half term we explore a different value and look at how it links to Christianity. Children are then encouraged to apply these values to their own lives and recognise them in others. Our values are: perseverance, respect, community, wisdom, kindness and truth.

Links to St Helen's Church

During their time at St Helen's, children will have many opportunities to visit St Helen's Church. Services are held at Harvest, Christmas and Easter. Families and friends are always welcome to join us.
