Welcome to

Rivenhall Church of England Primary School

Part of the Diocese of Chelmsford Vine Schools Trust

Welcome to Rivenhall C of E Primary School.

This school is a community where we all work together, where individual needs are recognised and supported and where every child matters. We firmly believe that collective worship is an integral part of our community and through it children develop socially, morally and spiritually. We are an Academy and are part of the Diocese of Chelmsford Vine Schools Trust.

Our Vision & Ethos

Many Hearts – One School

We recognise and celebrate the individuality of each person, and yet also cherish the common good that is created when those hearts come together as one school. This reflects the teaching of the Apostle Paul who said “Just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body.                                                         1 Corinthians Ch 12 v 12 (ESV) God has created us as individuals and we all have different gifts and abilities which, when we bring to our school community demonstrates we are interdependent on one another

The shared Christian values that underpin our life together are:

LOVE – runs throughout our whole approach to school life; our school prayer says, ‘let love abide here.’ 1 John 4:11
CARE – we prioritise nurturing one another, so that every person’s spiritual and emotional wellbeing are protected and cared for. Proverbs 4:23
WISDOM – we believe that learning leads not only to academic achievement, but also wisdom for life. Proverbs 3:13
RESPECT – we respect every one of God’s children, which breeds a culture of compassion and acceptance. 1 Peter 2:17
COURAGE – we encourage each person to persevere and show resilience in all their endeavours. Joshua 1:7

Working in partnership between the school and the community we can achieve the high expectations we have for all our pupils.

If you would like to know more about us, then visits to the school are always welcome, so do come and look around and meet the staff and children
