Our Church of England Status
Hartwell Church of England School is a Voluntary Controlled Primary School and, recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England.
This includes respecting other faiths and working in partnership with the church in the parish of St John the Baptist, Hartwell and at diocesan level.
Our school vision is inclusive of all and reflects that all our children are well prepared to be active citizens and 'experience life in all it's fullness', (John 10:10)
Collective Worship is a daily act of worship that brings the school community together. It is distinctively Christian and promotes the spiritual development of all.
Collective Worship is carefully planned to reflect our school's vision and values; British Values and current society; Biblical stories and texts, and celebrate what is wonderful at our school. Our acts of worship are conducted in a range of ways. further details of this can be found in our Collective Worship Policy: www.hartwellschool.com/images/policy_documents/school/Collective-Worship-Policy-2019.pdf
