A Church of England School Steyning C of E Primary School is a Church of England controlled school. It enjoys a close relationship with the Parish Church of St. Andrew and St. Cuthman in Steyning. Reverend Mark Heather is the vicar at the church and he generously gives his time visit the school throughout the year. We also have visits from other faith leaders. One Church Warden is a member of the governing body and together with the foundation governors, they ensure that the parish links are maintained. Religious Education The agreed West Sussex syllabus is followed at Steyning Primary School, through a scheme entitled ‘Understanding Christianity’. Although its primary focus is on Christianity, it also teaches the children about the main religions in the world and provides opportunities for philosophical as well as religious issues to be discussed. All faiths are valued and respected in our school. Reverend Mark Heather Assemblies and Acts of Worship Assemblies are held daily and include the collective act of worship. Monday morning assembly is led by the Head Teacher and focuses on a message from the Bible. It is a chance for the whole school to come together to reflect on the week ahead. The Friday assembly is led by a class, followed by the presentation of awards to the children. These include those they have gained outside school, if the child wants to celebrate their achievements in this way. Reception children begin the year with assembly in their classroom, joining the rest of the school when it is deemed appropriate.

The Curriculum At Steyning Cof. E Primary School we believe that curiosity and creativity are central to effective learning and endeavour to provide irresistible experiences which inspire and motivate the children and encourage them to engage fully as partners in the learning process. Whilst Literacy and Numeracy believe that they are brought interlinked. With this in mind topics which give the children a form the gateways to learning in all subjects, we to life by the other subjects and are therefore we organise curriculum content around exciting context for their learning. To find out detailed information about your child’s curriculum, please see their year group’s curriculum booklet. These can be found on the website. (‘Welcome to Year X – Information to Parents’) Music, Sport and Modern Foreign Languages At Steyning Primary School, these subjects are taught by very dedicated specilaists. All children, from Reception to Y 6 benefit from this. Throughout the year we participate in as many sporting competitions and tournaments as possible and our wide range of trophies demonstrates our success. We are also involved in many exciting musical events, such as ‘Young Voices’ at the O 2 in London, the Chanctonbury Music Festival and in-house productions. Every child in school learns French, ensuring that they progress in the language from Reception to Y 6 and are ready to explore new languages at secondary school.
Relationships and Sex Education Our curriculum aims to provide children with age-appropriate knowledge of healthy relationships and their bodies so that they can live happy lives and view themselves positively. In KS 1 and lower KS 2 children learn about how amazing their bodies are and how they grow and change. Alongside this, they explore what it means to be a family and how to maintain positive friendships. In upper KS 2, children learn about puberty and how a baby is made, in order that they are ready for and understand the changes their bodies will go through. They also explore issues surrounding body image and how to resist peer pressure. Underpinning all of the learning are the principles of self and mutual-respect, acceptance of diversity and love. We aim to create a trusting, sensitive and safe environment, in which children can ask and respond to questions without fear of being judged. Anti-bullying Policy It must be emphasised that the majority of children at Steyning Cof. E Primary School are well-behaved, thoughtful and considerate. However, as with any school, there is the occasional problem with bullying. These occurrences are always dealt swiftly, with parental improvement if necessary.

Behaviour Our detailed behaviour policy can be found on the school website. It is based around nine ‘Golden Rules’ which were written by everyone, together as a school community. In every class a behaviour chart is displayed (see below). Children are able to move both ways along this chart according to the choices they make throughout the day. Everyone starts a new day afresh on ‘Ready to Learn’ Very occasionally, a more serious incident may occur. For detailed information about sanctions in such cases, please read our Behaviour Policy.
