Our Vision and Ethos
Christ Church CE Ethos Statement (from the Instrument of Governance)
Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church as parish and diocesan level. The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers all its pupils.
“Love, learn, discover.”
At Christ Church CE and Lewis Street Primary Schools our aim is to nurture and empower our learners to achieve their own academic potential and gain the confidence and skills to ensure that they excel at our school, higher education/university and beyond.
Our Ethos and Values
Christ Church CE Primary School first opened its doors in 1860 and is the oldest Primary School in Salford. Lewis Street Primary School first opened its doors in 1905 and was the first Board Primary School in Salford. Since 2011, Christ Church and Lewis Street have worked in Partnership creating a community where our 4 values – EXCELLENCE; RESPECT; CHALLENGE and SELF-BELIEF can thrive. Our vision with-in the Partnership is to provide world class learning opportunities for all the children of Patricroft whilst maintaining and preserving the distinctive nature of both schools.
We believe that accountability and trust through Partnership can provide better opportunities for all children through school to school support and challenge.
As a family, Christian and community school, we encourage parents, carers, volunteers, students and other agencies to ‘learn with us’ to provide a positive role model demonstrating the rewards that cooperation and collaboration can bring. Our learning environment is reflective of our high expectations and engaging curriculum; the value we place on our diverse community and our celebration of similarities and differences. At the heart of our provision is our mantra ‘love, learn, discover’. We believe that a child who develops a love of learning is more likely to make good progress and a child who makes good progress is more likely to carry these skills forward through life. We are committed to providing learning opportunities that are fun and memorable for the children with lots of experiential opportunities through trips and visits. We are proud to have been accredited as both a Communication Friendly Space and hold the Dyslexia Friendly Kite Mark.
