School & Christian Values

What is special about Wolvey being a Church of England school and how does RE feature in school life?

 

We place high value on our Church of England ethos and this feeling of belonging runs through everything we do.

The teaching of Religious Education is one strand of this and through RE teaching the children learn about Christianity and other world faiths. We aim to make the curriculum as personal and relevant to the children as possible while at the same time using stories, research and other resources so they can learn about festivals and customs of the Christian world and beyond.

Our local church

 

History of the Church:
There was a church at Wolvey in Saxon days when the site on which the present Church of St. John the Baptist stands, was adjacent to the habitation of Ulve or Wulf, from which the parish derives its name. The site is an ideal Saxon knoll or mound, rising above the River Anker. The church is typical of the larger English parish churches, having chancel, nave, north and south aisles, west tower, south porch and north doorway. The earliest parts of the present church are: the south doorway of the twelfth century and probably the lower stages of the tower. There have been various substantial restorations through the centuries: in 1900 the Church having been closed for twelve months for very much needed restorations. In 1909 the old porch was replaced by a stone one, some of the early seventeenth timbers being reused in its roof. The flooring of the Church is of Horton stone paving (1929) and the pews are late Victorian.
