We are a Voluntary Controlled Church of England Primary School originally founded by the Parish Church of Holy Trinity to serve the needs of local children and families. Three members of the Governing Body are elected from Holy Trinity and are known as Foundation Governors.
The original school was financed by the Church, but this function is now performed by the Warwickshire Local Authority in co-operation with the school governors.
Close links are maintained with the Church. Local clergy and the Church Schools Team come into school to take assemblies on a regular basis and children also attend either Shottery St.Andrews or Holy Trinity each Term for assembly. We celebrate Christmas with our Carol Service, and end the school year in church with a celebratory assembly, to which parents and family are warmly invited.
Children learn prayers which they may say in assembly, at lunchtime or at the end of the day, learning some prayers by heart. They are taught to become familiar with aspects of Church of England life, such as liturgical colours, Christian symbols and seasons of the Church year.
