As a Church of England School we strongly believe in the Education vision as stated in, 

Church of England Vision for Education: Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good (2016)

"We aim to deliver excellence in education and want the very best outcomes for children and young people so that they can achieve their fullest potential. With many schools reporting that they feel under increasing pressure to make artificial choices between academic rigour and the wellbeing of their pupils, we are unequivocal in our message that there is no such distinction – a good education must promote life in all its fullness.

Our vision for education is deeply Christian, with Jesus' promise of 'life in all its fullness' at its heart.

In line with the Church of England's role as the established Church, our vision is for the common good of the whole community.

Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.

Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.

Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.

Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth"

As a Church of England School, collective worship is in accordance with the doctrine of the Church of England. We have very strong links to our local church - St Andrews. Rev. Linda Berry who visits us regularly for a thought provoking assembly. The local church community support the school by taking part in the 'Open the Book' programme, where they enact stories from the Bible. We all enjoy going to the church for special services such as Harvest, St Andrew's Day, Christmas and Easter when the children enjoy the sense of place and occasion, as well as being part of the wider community.

"It is a joy and a delight to be involved with the children at Bramfield School. They ask the best questions ever about God, faith and spirituality and are genuinely interested in learning about faith and spirituality and how that relates to the values they are focused on.  The school when it visits St Andrews Church brings light, love and laughter into an ancient sacred building,  as well as the wonder of communal worship and prayer, and I feel truly blessed to be part of the school community."

Rev. Jane Held
