Welcome to our Church, St. John the Baptist, Old Hutton . . . .
Our outstanding school was established by the Church of England and we are proud of our strong Christian foundation and family ethos. Our Christian values of Friendship, Forgiveness, Peace, Perseverance, Respect, Responsibility, Courage, Trust, Humility and Hope run through everything we do.
We have close links with our parish and local church of St John’s, which is just next door, as well as with the Diocese of Carlisle. We are involved in many shared activities and events (some are shown in our photos here). We enjoy a daily act of Collective Worship and our pupil-run Collective Worship Committee helps to organise this. We also actively study other faiths through a variety of first-hand experiences which enable our pupils to develop a good understanding of our multi-cultural society.
SIAMS (October 2015) says, ‘Pupils’ excellent behaviour and attitudes are based on their understanding of the school’s core Christian values. Highly effective links with the local church have a strong impact. The focus on children’s SMSC (spiritual, moral, social and cultural) development across the curriculum is exemplary.’
