Welcome to Bodsham Church of England Primary School

Click here for latest updates on Covid 19 and school closures.

The Federation of Bodsham and Saltwood Church of England Primary Schools is a well-established collaboration between two high performing schools with shared Christian values.

As the Executive Head Teacher I would like to welcome you to our community and invite you to explore the website which I hope will give you an impression of the caring ethos with which we seek to educate the children at both of our schools

Bodsham Church of England Primary School was awarded an Outstanding grade by Ofsted in 2008 and has remained so ever since. We are a small rural school in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our setting helps children learn to appreciate the natural environment and to develop a profound respect for all of creation.

Our children and families see Bodsham school as an extended family to which they all belong. Children demonstrate our Christian values in their play as well as their learning and the school was described in our latest inspection as a “joyful place to be”.

I believe time spent in primary school sets the foundations upon which all future learning is built. We aim to provide a nurturing and creative community, where all can achieve their full potential within a Christian environment, in readiness for life as a Global citizen.

I look forward to welcoming you!

Our Christian Vision

 

Our Christian Values are those of Love, Creativity and Strength.

We encourage our children to believe that they can help to make the world a better place, as shown in Luke 5: 17-27:

We hear how some men carried their paralysed friend to be healed by Jesus. Because of the crowd they could find no way into the house where he was. So they carried him up to the roof, made an opening in the tiles, and let him down on his bed in to the middle of the group in front of Jesus. Jesus, seeing how much faith they had, healed the man and sent him home. In this story we can see our school values brought to life through action. The men showed love for their friend by taking him to Jesus, they showed creativity in finding a way to get through the crowd and strength in working together to place him in front of Jesus. We help our children to become strong and confident learners, who believe in themselves and develop the skills they need to make a positive difference in the world.

How then do we live?

Our Christian Values of Love, Creativity and Strength inform our curriculum which in turn aims to develop children’s independence, self-expression, resilience, communication skills, creativity, self-belief, enquiry skills and understanding of diversity.

 

The Children

“When our Federation was searching for a new Executive Head Teacher, we asked the children to talk about their school.

This is what they said!”
