  1. About Us
  2. A Christian School

A Christian School

As a church school we believe that our role is to educate the whole child and that the spiritual growth of our children is as important as their academic development.  We have a well-planned curriculum that embraces spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. 

As a distinctively Christian school, this is the principle that underpins everything we do and believe:

‘Christian faith must be like tree, reaching to heaven rooted in love.’ (Galatians 5 22-23)

We aim to develop six Christian Values in our children:

  • Love 
  • Friendship
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Perseverance 
  • Community

These Christian Values feed into our Golden Rules:

  1. Do be kind and gentle
  2. Always tell the truth
  3. Do help others
  4. Listen carefully to adults and friends
  5. Respect equipment
  6. Never stop persevering

We are proud of our strong links with St Peter & St Paul church in Ewhurst and often work closely together.  

We also have links with Ewhurst Baptist Church. 


Christian Values

During each term our Christian values are explored through our collective worship, underpinning all we seek to achieve in the lives of our children, and they are central to our vision for the whole school community.  Developing children to become critical thinkers and ponder ultimate questions is the integral part for spiritual growth.



The Christian Calendar 

As a church school we mark significant events in the school year: Harvest, Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Mothering Sunday, Easter. Ascension.

Global links - Each year we use our school community to celebrate similarities  and differences to our church calendar e.g. Christmas Traditions. the families of our school  to share personal traditions from other countries.

We are part of a British Council Project "Connecting classrooms" with primary schools in Uganda.

Charities - The school council select a range of charities to support the year e.g. Children in Need, Red Nose Day, Christmas Jumper Day,  Harvest Collection for British Humanitarian Aid to Ukraine

Here are some images of the above activities:

Community Activities - The school is an integral part of the parish of Ewhurst with Okewood and Forest Green. Year 2 sing carols and nativity songs to the residents of The Old Rectory Nursing Home and members of the Glebe Centre. Members of the Glebe Centre are invited to a Nativity Performance.

This year the chancel roof has been restored and Year 2 signed a slab to mark this event. A time capsule box with a wealth of information from every society possible, including the school has been placed in the roof with the anticipation it wont be opened for at least 100 years!

Pet Service - An annual event which is held during our "Good to be me week". It is a time when we reflect on the joy and the unconditional love a pet gives us. We give thanks to God for the help they give us each day.

Leavers Service - This service is led by our Year 2 leavers, in which they reflect on their personal learning journey at Ewhurst School. it is a time of celebration that the children have become confident learners in God's care during their time at the school. It's an occasion where the whole school community share in our Christian values and vision.

Remembrance - Each year we mark the occasion with a dedicated time of worship and a two minute silence. We remember together across the world with respect the service and sacrifice, friendship and collaboration of all those who took part in conflict, past and present.
