'With God all things are possible’

As the only church school in the village we pride ourselves on having an outstanding distinctive Christian character.  At Sir John Offley CE VC Primary School we develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths. We enable children to develop a sound knowledge of Christianity and other world religions. Children reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding.

We have worked with stakeholders to write a vision and motto to reflect Sir John Offley. Our motto being ‘With God all things are possible' Matthew 19:26. Our Christian Values of Love, Aspiration and Forgiveness link directly to the Trinity: God, The Holy Spirit and Jesus and reflect Sir John Offley, our founder, who aspired to create a free church school in the parish for all children to be educated right back in the 16th century.

We feel strongly at Sir John Offley Primary School that every child is unique and valued; we ensure that we provide rich opportunities for our children.

These experiences, alongside a well thought out curriculum, enable our children to develop a deeper understanding of God's creation.

This is underpinned by our nurturing approach - we find it important to take the time to understand each individual child; we instil a resilience for them to be challenged and believe in their own ability and we strive for them to succeed and reach their true potential with God's encouragement.

We have strong links with All Saints' Church and with the vicar Rev. Peter Chantry and his curate Rev John who lead whole school worship each week in school. Harvest, Christmas and Easter services at Sir John Offley are taken at All Saints' Church.

Our school prayer is displayed and used daily throughout the school to reinforce our Core Christian Values.
