How are we a distinctive Church of England Primary School ?
At Hawkhurst CE Primary School we aim to be distinctive in our Christian character by living out our school values daily. Collective Worship is a key part of our school day, setting the tone for the behaviour and ethos of our school family.
We have good links with St Laurence's Church and our Vicar, Fr Rodney. The school visits St Laurence's Church for different Services throughout the year and Fr Rodney leads some Collective Worship in school.
Our pupils, staff and governors have all been involved in developing our three core Christian values, each with an associate Bible story.
- Compassion: The Good Samaritan
- Hope: The Lost Sheep
- Community: Feeding of the Five Thousand
These values form the foundations at Hawkhurst and underpin everything we do. We celebrate them in Collective Worship, explore them through our R.E lessons and use them in our everyday language. More importantly, we live them out in everything that we do.
