Bourne Abbey as a Church of England Academy

          

At Bourne Abbey, we provide a safe and stimulating environment where all can flourish as children of God. Core Christian values permeate all aspects of school life and the children live out these values in all that they do.  Each term has a different Christian Value as a focus, and the children take great pride in demonstrating how they are able to live out this value.

We have a vision of a community in which each person is offered the opportunity to fulfil their potential and to understand themselves to be valued for who they are. Through a stimulating and challenging learning environment, we pursue academic excellence and seek the flourishing of all members of the school community. As an inclusive and caring church school, our commitment is to help pupils become thoughtful, open-minded and compassionate human beings who have the knowledge, skills and motivation they need to bring about positive transformation in the world.

“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you ever can.”         John Wesley

Collective Worship takes place daily and contributes significantly towards children's spiritual development.  Spirituality is valued and scope for reflection is provided both within the RE curriculum and throughout the school.  This deepens the children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development (SMSC).

We have close links with our own Abbey Church and other local churches, whilst also visiting and learning about festivals of other faiths and religions.  We visit Bourne Abbey Church to celebrate Christian festivals and clergy from the Church frequently visit school.
