'Everyone matters, every day counts'


At Sir John Offley CE VC Primary School we develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths, and we address the fundamental questions in life, for example, the meaning of life and the existence of a divine spirit. 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 help the children learn from religions as well as about religions.

Our Core Christian Values:

  • Love
  • Forgiveness
  • Aspiration

These Core Christian Values represent God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit 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 celebrate Sir John Offley day on 20th May.

Alongside these Core Christian Values are our academic school STARS values:

  • Sharing
  • Trust
  • Achievement
  • Respect
  • Safety

We have strong links with All Saints' Church and with Rev. Peter Chantry who leads whole school worship alternate weeks at school. Harvest, Christmas and Easter services at Sir John Offley are taken at All Saints' Church alongside additional services such as Education Sunday and the Fish project.

The school council have recently updated our school prayer which is displayed and used daily throughout the school to reinforce our Core Christian Values.
