Church School

Christian Ethos

Thomas Bullock Church of England Primary and Nursery Academy is proud to be a Church of England Academy which is part of the Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust.

Being a Church of England Primary Academy, we have carefully developed a distinct Christian Ethos. From our daily acts of collective worship where the whole school gathers together to our Christian values which underpin everything we do.

Our Christian Vision Statement

The Academy aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian beliefs and practices. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.

Collective Worship

Thomas Bullock Church of England Primary Academy maintains strong links with All Saints’ Church, which is located within the village. Collective Worship takes place daily, with the whole Academy joining together in the hall on every day other than Monday which is class based. We believe that this supports our belonging to our Academy family, the Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust family and the Christian family.

Collective worship is led by either the Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher or R.E Leader, with fortnightly visits from the Rev’d Laura Purnell. For special Christian Festivals, such a Harvest, Christmas and Easter, the whole school walk to All Saints Church where we are joined by families to celebrate the occasion.

The Academy Values

Our school values form the foundation to everything we do at Thomas Bullock Church of England Primary Academy.

These values come from work carried out with the children, staff and community of the school, and form part of a two-year rolling programme of collective worship at our Academy.

We look at two of these values in depth for a half term. Through collective worship we link our focus value to the Songs of Praise, Reflections and Christian teachings, looking how these impact upon our everyday lives.
