As a church school we enjoy strong links with our local church, St Peter’s, which is one of four local churches in The Oxted Team Ministry (Tandridge, Crowhurst, Hurst Green and Oxted).
We are proud and privileged to have these links with the Church and wider community which we believe strengthen and put our Religious Education teaching into context. We are constantly striving to deepen these links and our adult and pupil led Faith Group meets regularly to explore ways to develop and strengthen this.
The aims of the Faith Group are:
- ensuring the school has a distinctively Christian ethos and displays Christian values
- working to maintain and strengthen our church-school link
- encourage pupils and staff to engage with faith with a focus on Collective Worship and the use of prayer areas
- develop an awareness of issues locally and the wider world and be active in support
Faith Group pupil members are elected by their peers and are in role for the year.
We also work closely with the Faith group of Nutfield C of E School and the two groups meet termly to discuss ideas and share experiences.
