Adderley CE Primary School & Nursery

Adderley is a Church of England primary school which has close links to St. Peter's church in the village.We are committed to the enjoyment of learning and to the spiritual, moral, educational and social development of our children. We do this with a framework of Christian belief and values and in an atmosphere of care, respect and encouragement.

We have daily Collective Worship at the start of each morning. The children lead the worship on a Tuesday.This is particularly popular with the whole school. The Nursery children also attend regularly.

Reverend Richard Clarkson leads acts of worship in school on Wednesday. The whole school attend services at the church to celebrate Harvest, Christmas and Easter. In the summer term we also hold a very special leaver’s service for our Year Six pupils where they are presented with an inscribed bible and a candle to remind them that we will be thinking of them and they are not alone as they move on to senior school.

There are numerous opportunities for the children to reflect on their learning in the curriculum and areas around the school are designated as a focal point for this including on the playground and in our Forest School site.

We use the term Koinonia, which is the Christian value of 'Community', to reflect that at Adderley Church of England School we all work together. The children are supported in their understanding of Christian values alongside British Values to guide their actions.

As part of our RE lessons we may visit the church or meet with Reverend Richard to learn about the building, Christian worship and to discuss questions raised by the children through their work.

Collective Worship Policy 2015


Our status is "voluntary controlled" which means that we are "controlled" by the Local Authority (Shropshire) but that we have strong links with the parish. In addition it means that every three years we are inspected under the SIAMS (Statutory inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) legislation.
