Welcome to Bodsham Church of England Primary School

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!

Mr Newton

The overall aims of the Federation are to:

Be a happy school – a school to which the children will enjoy coming.

Affirm God’s love for every individual.

Help children to live together in a community, encouraging care for others before themselves and to become responsible, independent people.

Be a safe place in which mistakes can be made, learned from and forgiven.

Release the potential of every individual to enable them to reach the highest level of achievement of which they are capable and equip them for life.

To give every child the experience of success and a sense of personal value.

To broaden pupils’ horizons; to help develop lively, enquiring minds, the ability to question and argue rationally, to work with imagination and a sense of purpose.
