Message from the Principal
Welcome from the Principal
Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website. On behalf of our talented staff, our dedicated Governors and Trinitas Academy Trust, we welcome you to our wonderful school.
Christ Church (Erith) C of E Primary Academy is a vibrant, ambitious and inclusive school that places children at the heart of everything that we do. Our school celebrates the rich social and cultural diversity of the world that we are privileged to live in.
Our strong Christian ethos is reflected in our core values of Respect, Joy, Honesty and Forgiveness. All are welcomed and valued at Christ Church. We strive for academic excellence, self-discipline and creativity, alongside caring respectful relationships, between pupils, staff, parents/carers and our external partners.
We are also committed to continuously developing our curriculum so that every child is inspired to learn and every teacher is inspired to teach. We recognise that parents/carers are children's first teachers, so we actively seek and encourage parental partnership in school life.
We are passionate about fostering a love of reading here at Christ Church (Erith). Reading with your child daily, is just one way to support and enable your child to achieve well and become a lifelong learner. The ability of your child to 'know more, do more and remember more' is key to embedding knowledge and skills that will result in excellent progress every day, across all subjects.
New starters in our Reception classes enjoy learning in a safe, stimulating and attractive free-flow environment, with its large outdoor area. Our Reception team has highly skilled practitioners who know exactly when to intervene to enhance children's learning and when to step back and allow their creativity to flourish.
We are fortunate to have extensive facilities and several break-out learning zones throughout the school. Additionally, we have a computing suite and there is access to wraparound care (breakfast and afterschool club). For personal development, children are also expected to participate in a range of activity clubs during and after school.
If after viewing our website you have further queries, please feel free to make contact via the school office. Should you require a school place for your child in reception or if you are interested in an in-year transfer, please email [firstname.lastname@example.org] for details of our open day visits.
We look forward to welcoming you to Christ Church (Erith) C of E Primary School very soon.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6
