Within the Christian ethos of our foundation, our school’s mission is to:

Develop children who will be motivated, independent and enthusiastic learners who give of their best and are able to make progress measured against their individual standard of achievement.

Ensure that all pupils receive a truly rounded learning experience and provide every pupil with an equal chance of success.

Create an environment where children will feel safe, valued and cared for.

Provide and maintain a disciplined environment by promoting a culture of good manners, courtesy, mutual respect and co-operation.

Establish close links with parents and align their aspirations for their children with demonstrable achievement.

Recruit and retain the best teaching and support staff and encourage them to maximise their potential for the benefit of the pupils.

The National Church of England Education Vision - Deeply Christian serving the common good


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.

In Mid Trent we are a team of churches and schools building God's inclusive kingdom of unconditional love. 


Lord God, we praise you that you are fully in control of all things. I pray you would protect my child. Keep them healthy and help them to thrive. I thank you that you know every hair on their head. You know exactly when they rise and when they fall. Watch over my child in every area of their life and keep them safe I pray, Amen.

Lord God I thank you for the gift of knowledge! I praise you that you provide us with brains to think and question the world around us. I pray you would help my child learn well and flourish. May they discover their unique talents and gifts. Give them a passion for the world around them. Amen

Lord God, I thank you that you made us to be in relationship with others. I pray for my child to know great care and support from those around them. May they be encouraged by friends at school. May they show your love and care to their friendship circle. Amen
