Although we are Church of England Primary School, we serve our local community and you do not have to be a Christian to attend. Each day involves an Act of Worship that follows the Church of England Calendar. The local vicar of St Chad's, Wybunbury, leads the Worship once a week. There is a close relationship between the school and St Chads (St Chad's website).
Parents, grandparents and younger siblings are invited to join us for Community Worship in school on Wednesdays led by our vicar. We also welcome parents at Church for Harvest, Easter and End of School Year services. Children perform a nativity at Christmas and the older children organise a Carol Service. Link to our policy for worship.
We are very proud of our church inspection judgements.
April 2017, the inspectors judges our school to be Outstanding in all areas of the inspection. Comments from the report include:
- Wybunbury Delves is a small school with a big heart. It is a happy place in which to learn, grow and thrive. Everyone is engaged in its vision to be a 'school community where each child experiences a love of learning and of life and is able to shine'.
- A Year 6 boy remarked, 'We feel at home and accepted here, it is more like a family than a school.'
- All pupils are known very well. As a result of the emphasis on belonging together, the behaviour of pupils is outstanding. They are mature, very keen to learn and extremely respectful towards adults and one another. The school's nurturing and vibrant culture is highly conducive to learning and its Christian ethos enhances outcomes. The mood is calm but pupils buzz with enthusiasm.
- Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development is promoted strongly in religious education (RE), worship and the wider curriculum. Pupils respond well and are able to express their ideas about faith and its influence in their own lives with increasing confidence and spiritual maturity.
