I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of this very special school.
Idyllically set within the beautiful and historic village of Sonning, our school aims to offer a unique educational journey within a caring Christian environment. Our school is a one form entry school with 7 classes and was built on its current site to serve the Ecclesiastical Parish of Sonning in 1965.
As a church school, an understanding of Christian faith and an awareness of Christian values is encouraged. The warm, friendly, caring ethos of the school is based on our values of Confidence, Opportunity, Respect, Equality and Independence. Relationships within our school community are built on these values with Christian teachings and values permeating all aspects of school life.
Every child matters at our school and every decision we take is based on what is in the best interests of the children. Our curriculum is diverse, exciting and bespoke in order to meet the needs of our children. We work closely with organisations within our community in order to provide a wide variety of learning opportunities and experiences. We challenge our pupils to achieve, we strive to inspire, develop confidence, provide opportunity and realise the potential within every child.
The staff and governors are highly skilled and committed to ensuring we provide the very best education we can. We have high standards of behaviour and achievement and there is a real sense of community. Our school seeks to involve parents in partnership with their children’s learning. We also enjoy the support of an active PTA who contribute to all aspects of our school lives.
We hope that the time children spend with us is happy and relevant to their future needs. When a child leaves us, they are well-prepared for the world; self-confident, sociable and articulate, with many special memories of their time here.
One of the real joys for me as Headteacher is to witness first-hand how our staff and children live out our values and mission statement on a daily basis in the life of our school.
We welcome visitors and provide guided tours for prospective parents. Please contact the school office to arrange a visit.
I hope that this school website will answer all your questions. However should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
I very much look forward to welcoming you to our school.
