“...with God all things are possible” Matthew (19:26)


Being a Church School


We are proud to be an open, inclusive and diverse church school at the centre of our community in Heaviley, where children are encouraged to believe, achieve and become active future citizens.


St George’s aim to provide a challenging, yet nurturing environment based on our Christian Values.  It is our responsibility as a Church of England school to provide the children with the building blocks of the Christian faith through the means of worship, prayer and familiarity with Scripture. Our children are challenged to think for themselves about the big questions that face the world today, within an environment which respects other faiths and cultures.


 All the children in our care are children of God and are created in his likeness. God is love and He wants the best for His children. 


Spirituality at St George’s

We nurture and celebrate each person within our school family; individuals are respected and valued equally without regard to ability, gender, faith, heritage or race. Here at St George's, spirituality is knowing that  ‘..with God all things are possible’ Matthew (19:26).  It is woven like a thread through our school enriching who we are. 


By creating meaningful moments, we aim to transform thoughts, actions and heighten awareness. Through providing an exciting, engaging and thought-provoking curriculum we encourage children to explore, ask questions, reflect and grow as unique individuals. We want our pupils to go out from St George’s and with knowledge and informed global citizens in their communities. 


Assemblies and Collective Worship

An act of Collective Worship takes place every day and is an important part of school life, making space for pupils and staff to come together and share in worship through learning, music, reflection and prayer. Our worship is inclusive and gives all of the school community the chance to be part of the experience, while respecting the integrity of family and cultural backgrounds.


The weekly pattern of collective worship looks like this:


Monday – Led by a member of the church-alternative key stages in Church

Tuesday – Key Stage worship

Wednesday - Class worship linked to the week's theme

Thursday - Hymn practice

Friday -In school Key Stage worship. 

Teachers and the Headteacher lead Collective Worship during the week and there is a Celebration Assembly once a week to celebrate pupil’s achievements. From time to time a whole class plans and delivers collective worship to which parents are invited. We also celebrate Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas and Easter, inviting a member of the Church to support our worship.

Our School Prayer

This is our school

Let peace live here

Let the rooms be full of happiness

Let love be all around

Love of one another

Love of life, living and learning

Help us to remember, that as many hands build a house

So many hearts make a school
