Hulland School is a Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) School and has recently celebrated 150 years (1863 – 2013) of being a Church School. In recognition of its historic foundation the school aims to serve it’s community by providing education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning of faith and promotes Christian values through the experiences it offers its pupils.
There are two foundation Governors representing the Church, one of these is the Reverend Phil Michell, who encourages close links with Christ Church Parish Church.
Reverend Phil regularly leads collective worship in school and the children attend services at Church including Christmas and Harvest. A team of lay people present 'Open the Book,' bringing Bible stories to life in school.
Church links help the children to become familiar with Christian worship, values and traditions within the larger context of the many beliefs and spiritualties in society.
We wish to reassure parents that our lessons and assemblies are not designed to convert pupils or urge particular beliefs but to promote understanding and respect for a wide variety of faiths and approaches.
‘Hulland Church of England Primary School is an inclusive place where everyone feels valued, safe and special. Christian values underpin many aspects and dimensions of the school. There is a very positive atmosphere of care, consideration and love throughout the school and wider church community. Parents, pupils and visitors appreciate the welcome environment. At Hulland, children really do 'come first'. (Diocesan Inspection June 2010)
