Welcome to St Martin’s Church of England Voluntary Aided School
Message from Juliet Robinson, headteacher.
On behalf of the governing body and staff, I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to St Martin’s Church of England (VA) Primary School, Fangfoss.
We work in close partnership with our church, parents, pupils and our wider community to provide the best possible environment, curriculum and growth opportunities for our children.
Here, pupils are encouraged to flourish as individuals and to fulfil their potential. This is a caring, loving and vibrant village primary school, where you can also access before and after school care from 7:30am until 5:45pm and a fully integrated nursery school for 3 and 4 year olds.
Here at St Martin’s, we strive to create a warm, reflective and inspirational learning environment, where our core Christian values infuse all that we learn, do and say in our community, enabling our pupils to grow in compassion, trust, responsibility and creativity.
"A warm, reflective and inspirational learning environment, where our core Christian values infuse all that we learn, do and say in our community."
We nurture our children’s spiritual, moral, social, physical and emotional development alongside academic excellence, supporting them to make the best possible progress, whatever their starting points and individual needs.
If you haven’t visited our school or would like to know more, please do contact us. We would love to hear from you!
Message from Revd. Jan
One of the most important decisions any Parent/Guardian will make is the place where their child will be formally educated. Education and learning of course has already begun and began with you on the very first day that your child was born. St. Martins’ School Fangfoss would like to continue that work in partnership with you and as a Church Aided School in partnership with the parish of St. Martin’s, Fangfoss, and the Church of England.
St. Martin’s School is a happy school where you can be confident that everyone is working together to provide an environment where children thrive and learn. They will learn all that is required in terms of the National Curriculum and in addition to this they will be able to think about the community in which they live and have a wider understanding of their place in society and the world, in a way in which they are enabled to understand their responsibilities, value all humanity and care for the beautiful world in which we live.
Your child will have an opportunity to reflect on God and think about the Christian faith, alongside other World Religions, and philosophies. This helps children to have an appreciation of other views particularly those which are different to theirs, thereby developing a greater understanding of difference and tolerance.
St. Martin’s School Fangfoss is an incredibly special place where all are honoured and valued. Where everyone has a part to play and where you, the school and the church has the opportunity to fulfil all the potential your child has been given and will be able to achieve.
Thank you for entrusting us with your most precious, gift.
Revd. Jan Hardy
