Our Faith

Our Faith

As a Church of England School, our faith permeates through every area of school life. We support the Church of England’s Vision for Education, aiming to provide the opportunity for all within our school family to live life in all it’s fullness whilst serving the whole community. 


Our school’s ethos is based around our core Christian Values. These are Forgiveness, Friendship, Honesty, Hope, Kindness, Love, Peace, Respect, Compassion and Trust. These are studied and linked to the children’s own lives and experiences through collective worship opportunities. We explore a different value each half term. At the end of each half term, the Visions and Values Crew deliver an assembly explaining the half terms value. 


         Our Vision

Through our Christian ethos and core values, the school’s mission is to provide each unique child with an enriched education, so they become well-rounded, caring and confident individuals who live life in all its fullness within their communities and God’s world.


Throughout their time at Low Furness, children are given many opportunities to explore their faith and beliefs in the following ways: 

  • Participation in daily collective worship
  • Exploring our Christian Value of the Half Term 
  • Involvement in Visions and Values Crew
  • Attending Church Services
  • Learning about Christianity and other religions in weekly RE lessons
  • Becoming involved in activities in the local area 

Community and Church
