At Christ Church Academy we believe that our identity as a Christian community gives us something a bit special...
We root all that we do in the values shown to us by Jesus. Throughout the school, we begin each day with a simple act of prayer, led by our team of Worship Leaders. As we study and play together, we try to remember the values we share; generosity, truthfulness, courage, perseverance, compassion, trust, friendship, justice, thankfulness, respect, forgiveness and service. Each half term we focus on a different Christian value, reflecting on why these things are important and what scripture teaches us about them. Each week, during daily Base Time sessions students lead reflections and activities designed to explore the value of the half term. Students also take responsibility for the prayer areas found in each form room.
At Christ Church we feel that it is no good to simply talk about the things that make us distinctive as a Christian school; we also must act. That is why we aim to serve others through initiatives such as Operation Christmas Child and Water Aid fundraising. It is also the reason why we make sure that we ‘live out’ the values that we study, so that we can see the fruits of our work around us in school.
Learning about our faith does not stop when we leave the school grounds. We enjoy trips to places such as Lichfield Cathedral and Soul Survivor and also love to welcome visitors to speak to us.
Christ Church Academy regularly worship as a whole school at our local church, Christ Church, Stone. Reverend Kingman plays a vital role in our school, making sure that we have weekly opportunities to come together to worship as Key Stages. Reverend Kingman also supports our Seekers Club each week, where students have the chance to explore their faith more deeply.
As a Christian school we believe that we offer much more than an academic education; we seek to develop the whole person, offering spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as well as the development of character and identity, allowing our children to become the best versions of themselves, with Christ at the centre of all we do.
The School Prayer
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 ever you can.
At Christ Church Academy, worship is very important to us. That is why we have a team of Worship Leaders who are essential in planning, delivering and reflecting on our daily acts of worship. Each form group, from Y5 through to Y8 has its own Worship Leaders whose roles include leading prayers, maintaining and updating their prayer tables and designing new and exciting ways to celebrate our Christian faith.
