Christian Ethos Committee

In 2018, Warton Nethersole’s Primary School developed their Christian Ethos Committee (CEC); a small group of community members who are invested in supporting the Christian Ethos of the school and in developing it’s Christian distinctiveness. Despite the challenges of Covid, the CEC have worked successfully together to bring about change, investment and new ideas to the school and we are really proud of the work they have done for us and with us.

Our Christian Ethos Committee are:

Hi I’m Alison Robinson.  I am a mother to two children (and a husband!), both of whom have attended this school.  Currently, l juggle a few part-time jobs, two of which are at The Polesworth High School – I enjoy being around children and young people.  I was brought up in the Church of Scotland, but didn’t become a Christian until about 12 years ago and I now attend Austrey Baptist Church.  I’ve been a member of the Christian Ethos Committee since it began in 2018.  I was pleased to have been asked by the former head teacher to help to implement and start it up.  It makes me happy to be part of a group that genuinely cares for the children and we have all had our part to play in making good and positive decisions that help steer the direction of the school.   

Hi I’m Linda Buckingham. I have been a Christian for over thirty-five years. I am a communicant member of the Church of England but presently worship with Tamworth Baptist Church and a local fellowship group. When on
holiday I worship with Christians in the city of Tours, France. My faith has carried me through many uncertain times because in Jeremiah 29:11 it says “‘I know the plans I have for you’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.’” It is a privilege to
serve the pupils and staff of our village school as a member of the Christian Ethos Committee. I am currently working with other members to prepare for our next SIAMS inspection and also to create an outdoor prayer and quiet space for pupils.

Hi, I am Rachel Sage and I have been teaching at Warton Nethersole’s since 2015 and have been RE lead since 2016. I have been a member of the Christian Ethos Committee group since it started in 2018. I want to ensure our Christian Distinctiveness shines through our pupils, our staff and our whole community. I attend a local Baptist church where I am on the leadership team and lead the worship on Sunday mornings.

Hi, I’m Revd Joanne Dyer and I am the Rector of the Parish of All Souls, which is a group of 5 churches and Villages including Holy Trinity, Warton. As a child I attended a Church of England Primary School, but it wasn’t until we had our own daughter, that we started exploring what faith meant to us personally. We soon realised that our Christian faith impacted all sorts of decisions, like who we bought our energy off,  to supporting local businesses and encouraging local communities to thrive.

Being fairly new to the area, I am new to the Christian Ethos Committee here are Warton Nethersoles, but I  am already enjoying working alongside a committed team seeking to ensure all we do is underpinned by Christian teaching,  our faith in Jesus, and God’s love for all.
