“I have come that they may have life, and have it in all its fullness. I am the Good Shepherd.” John 10: 10-11
“You are a child of God. You are wonderfully made and precious in his sight. Before God made you, He knew you. There is no-one else like you.” Psalm 139
“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
Welcome to our school website. We hope it provides you with a useful insight into how our school operates, what we are like and what sorts of things we get up to every term.
We are intensely proud of all we do, and know it is our combination of our nurturing, distinctively Christian ethos, strong teaching and academic success which ensures children feel safe, are happy and learn well here.
We believe that our pupils are the leaders of the future. We want them to be successful adults - gainfully employed in jobs they like, and living adult lives in successful, loving relationships. Because of this we make learning engaging and memorable for our children, with a constant focus on progress and achievement so that all children make good progress at our school and attain the academic levels which will open doors for them when they seek employment.
At the same time we actively promote and model strong values (and associated actions) and communication skills so that children learn how to secure and maintain friendships and positive relationships.
By placing an equal focus on academic achievement and how we treat one another, we believe we have just the right combination of ‘try hard, be nice’ which provides the very backbone of what our school provides for our children every day.
We are a Church of England School with very close links to our Parish Church of Christ Church, and receive visits and support every week from the Vicar (Mark) and his team of Youth Workers. Our Christian ethos is obvious as you walk around our schools, and expect everyone to respect this. However we welcome families of all faiths, and those of none, to our school and are pleased to be able to serve all who live in our community.
Our website is only ‘one window’ to our schools. You are most welcome to visit and see for yourself the happy and positive ethos that Ottershaw Christ Church C of E Infant and Junior Schools have to offer.
We hope to see you soon.
Mrs Jo Hastings
