Our Church School
Our school vision: "At Park Street, we FLOURISH!"
"Let your light shine" Matthew 5:16
These words of Jesus are linked to our school’s vision. They inspire and motivate our whole school community. Jesus reminded us in Matthew’s gospel that we are lights for the world. As we seek to follow him, we can share his light with others and change the world!
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
We believe that every child and adult can FLOURISH and shine. We recognise that we are all special in God’s eyes and have unique talents, which we nurture so that each of us has the opportunity to become the very best person that God intended us to be. We want to encourage our children to aspire to great things and for the light of their lives to shine and make a difference in their classrooms, throughout school, at home, in the local community and the wider world.
In addition to letting their light shine on others, we want our children to recognise the value of their own light: to be proud of their personal achievements; to value and respect themselves; and to know how loved they are both by God and by others.
As an inclusive school, we warmly welcome families of all faiths or none. We celebrate the cultural and religious diversity of our school community in a caring and spiritually supportive environment. Our Christian ethos enables us to help our children develop their spirituality and sense of moral purpose. We ask that parents support and uphold our school values (Love, Courage, Joy and Truth)
Holy Trinity Church
Our church school status is a key characteristic of our school; it is part of what makes us special. We are here to serve our local community and are open to all.
As a church school, we have a very strong relationship with Holy Trinity Church. Some of these links include:
- Having a number of Church members serve as Foundation Governors.
- The vicar and other church members leading collective worship.
- Many Park Street children attending the HotShots after school and summer clubs led by the church.
- Attending regular school services in church.
