A Church School

"Eastnor is an extremely inclusive and special place where pupils flourish in a nurturing environment underpinned by a strong sense of the Christian faith."

SIAMS Inspection Report 2018.

Eastnor Parochial Primary School is a Church of England School which actively promotes Christian values and fundamental personal values. Our values-based approach encourages commitment, effort and high standards in all that we do and enables children to discuss, explore and reflect upon those values we live by, which make us thoughtful, caring and responsible citizens.


As a Church of England Primary School we adhere to the Diocesan Board of Education’s principles about what makes a Church school distinctive and inclusive. We teach the full National Curriculum and, in addition, through our Christian Character and RE Curriculum:


  • A sense of belonging to a family within a school

  • Teaching of forgiveness, peace and reconciliation

  • Spiritual nourishment, encouragement and challenge

  • An attitude of reverence for God and respect for each other

  • A search for truth

  • Help for those in need


At Eastnor C of E Primary- where pupils and staff come from all faiths and none - religious education (RE) is a highly valued academic subject which is taught across all year groups


The RE curriculum at Eastnor is based on the agreed syllabus provided by Herefordshire's Local Education Authority. This syllabus aims to embed the 'Understanding Christianity' resource with the key purpose of supporting pupils in developing their own thinking and their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it.


Through the study of other religions, we aim is to promote an attitude of understanding and tolerance through increasing children’s knowledge about other people’s beliefs, values and religious practices. Strong collaborations with charities such as Concern Universal also play an important part in school life.


Our alliance with the Church is very important to us and we are blessed to have our Vicar, Reverend Keith, on the Local Academy Board. This has ensured that Christian beliefs are at the heart of the school’s work.


We have a daily act of worship at Eastnor Church which we feel is central to the school day. Children participate in this worship through story, drama, prayer and discussion. We say the Lord’s Prayer daily. This is a strong feature of our worship, and helps our children to prepare themselves to take part in Church Services. Children are also given periods of time for reflection and contemplation. This time for quiet reflection, sometimes using a candle to help focus, helps children to balance and settle their busy minds.
