Ethos and Values




Visitors frequently remark on the friendly atmosphere that exists in school. We are a community school which flourishes under the guidance of the teachings of Jesus Christ. We work closely with our local church, Holy Trinity Meanwood as well as several other community groups. We value the contribution that everyone makes to school life, placing great importance on creating fulfilled and happy people.


We have high expectations of all children both socially and academically. We aim to provide young people with the experiences they need to develop into successful learners; confident individuals and compassionate citizens of God's family.


It is our aim that at the end of their years at Meanwood C of E, all children will have a sense of achievement and fulfilment as a result of their experiences here and will leave us for the next school as a flourishing individual .


We are above all a Christian school, which seeks to ensure that every child is welcomed into the family by the way we love one another. Our Collective Worship and Reflection topics always ensure that children and staff have the opportunity to develop spiritually and emotionally, creating a harmonious and caring environment in school.


In the context of this, all children will receive teaching in Religious Education which, whilst having a multi-cultural element, will be mainly based on the beliefs of the Church of England. Although parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education and daily collective worship, after consultation with the Staff, it is to be hoped that nobody seeking a place for a child in this school would wish to do so.

Please browse the website and see our policies and curriculum planning to see how we constantly strive to live out our ethos.
