Church School Distinctiveness

Our Church School Distinctiveness

At St Mellion Church of England Primary School, we aim to provide our children with an environment in which they feel safe, can forge life-long friendships and are suitably supported to achieve their full potential holistically. We wholeheartedly believe that our school's vision and ethos helps to lay the foundations for all to develop physically, spiritually, emotionally and mentally. As a result of our strong Christian distinctiveness we have seen some of our children want to become agents of change and support local and nationwide causes for the greater good of humanity. 

As part of St Barnabas Multi-Academy Trust, we encourage our children to 'Bring It!'. When we discuss Bringing It within school we talk about what we can learn from The Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14–30) and how we can bring our talents to school so that we can be the best versions of ourselves to enable us to flourish. This is supported by the Church of England's vision for education to live 'life in all its fullness' (John 10:10). Additionally, we have three core Christian values that are threaded through daily school life and help to remind us God loves us all. Our Christian values of courage, creativity and friendship help all of us (children and adults) to live out our vision through learning and relationships in school.

On a school level, we often refer to our community as a family. This feeds in directly to our school strapline of 'Learning and Caring Together'. We believe that this is underpinned by the Thessalonians 5:11 quote "encourage one another and build each other up as you are already doing" This encompasses how our school family work together to ensure that all achieve their fullest potential.
