5 Ways of Being

This year, we are promoting our  5 ways of being that we believe help us in our daily lives. These are:

  • Be yourself always
  • Confident communicators
  • Show you care
  • Contribute to your community by succeeding together.
  • Knowledgeable and expert learners.

These are in addition to our core values that we focus on each half term.



May we take this opportunity to remind you that your child is required to wear full school uniform consisting of; black/grey trousers/school skirt, blue shirt, tie, school jumper/cardigan. We have seen a rise in children wearing trainers to school and must reiterate that smart, black shoes are also part of our school uniform. Please make sure your child has full, correct uniform as it hugely improves attitude towards school. We appreciate on occasions there may be genuine reasons and it may take longer to rectify these, therefore please speak to your child’s class teacher if there are any issues you are having.


Your child’s PE slot will be on a Wednesday, please note that they should come to school wearing their PE kit.


Follow your child’s learning through social media on Twitter @church_prim  and @year5church_prim and share photos and videos with school via Twitter by tagging our accounts.
