Welcome to Withington C of E Primary School
Welcome to our website and to our warm, vibrant and inclusive church school. We very much hope that you will find the information useful. If you have any further questions then please contact the school office.
As a Church of England Primary School, our ethos is firmly grounded in our Christian vision: 'Nurturing pupils and adults to flourish with God's Grace'. We are committed to celebrating each and every child and we seek to provide many and varied opportunities for learning. Our close-knit community supports and encourages our children to grow and flourish, both personally and academically. With a purpose driven, high quality provision, we endeavour to foster fundamental values where children are empowered to be resilient in always trying their best.
Children here love learning because we teach them how to learn for life. Our Christian core values, based on Galatians 5:22-26 are the ‘Fruit of the Spirit’: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control. We all strive hard to live by these. We see each value as essential qualities to enable our children to achieve their best now and in the future.
Our vision and values are realised through the biblical parable of the Mustard Seed Mark 4:30-32:
In this parable, the mustard seed is one of the smallest seeds on earth; however, when it grows, it becomes a large sprawling plant and it attracts birds to nest in the branches. The mustard seed represents the Kingdom of God that Jesus brings into the world.
