Mordiford CE Primary is a church academy school and part of the Hereford Diocese. We were very proud to be graded outstanding in our last SIAMS inspection (2010). The school has high standards in all areas which stem from the ‘Treasure Each Individual’ driven ethos based in our Christian character. The Christian context also has a powerful impact on children’s learning and understanding of community.
Our school sits across the road from Holy Rood Church, which is a central part of school life. Here we celebrate the key Christian festivals, hold Collective Worship and learn about the Christian faith in RE. Rev. Chris Moore is a regular visitor in school and a strong supporter of all we do through his role as a Governor and as our vicar.
Worship and Spirituality at Mordiford occupies a central part in the children’s experiences and takes place on a daily basis in some form or another, e.g. whole school, year group, key stage or class worship. All staff take an active role in either leading or taking part in worship throughout the week. Worship is also linked to curriculum topics, special times throughout the year or the Christian values to widen children’s thinking, and to strengthen the Christian context of their learning. We view Spirituality at Mordiford as ‘Treasuring Each Individual’ and giving them the opportunity to explore the person within and how they use it to enrich their lives and the lives of others.
