Life As A Church School
Our Federation consists of Bursledon Church of England Controlled Infant School and Bursledon Church Affiliated Junior School
Our Infant school is Church of England Controlled which means that it is Local Authority Maintained and receives no funding from the church, but it has foundation governors from the Anglican church community as part of its Governing Board. It is also subject to routine inspections by the diocese. The Junior School is affiliated to the Church of England and both schools share the same Christian vision, values and ethos.
St Leonard's Church is one of two churches that lie within our parish. The other, St Paul's is also only a short walk from our schools
Our latest SIAMS inspection report
'Church schools' are described by the Church of England on their own website as being 'inclusive and serving equally those who are of the Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith'. Church schools serve the people and community of the locality. A church school is a community where everyone is educated in heart and soul as well as mind.
We enjoys good links with the local community church - Bursledon Parish. Our church team, lead by Rev John Pawson, lead worship in both the schools, as well as leading the school in worship when they visit the church. This link will take you to Bursledon Parish website where you will find out more information about how they serve our local community and how you can take an active part in this.
