Church Schools Vision

The Church Schools within the Link Academy Trust aim to provide an education with four key elements which are at the heart of all that we are, enriched by our Christian traditions; Wisdom, HopeCommunity and Dignity.  Our learners will be given opportunities to become independent, collaborative, creative learners who have the confidence to seek wisdom and nurture a love of learning.  Our small schools provide big opportunities to broaden learners’ horizons and prepare them for the fullness of life, through hope, aspiration and our core Christian values.  We focus on relationships and learning to live well in a wider community that can flourish together.  Central to children’s learning is respecting the worth, dignity and preciousness of each person in a safe and inclusive environment within the sight and love of God.

We are extremely lucky to be right next door to the delightful church of St Matthew’s. This provides us with a lovely setting for some of our assemblies as well as festival gatherings, for example Harvest Festival and Carol Service, plus our Landscove School traditions of Mothering Friday, Leaver’s Assembly and of course our KS1 Nativity and KS2 Christmas production. We are also fortunate to have the excellent Reverend Tom Benson who takes regular assemblies at our school and also leads our worship at church celebrations. Using this lovely church also provides opportunities to link with the local community who are invited to join us at our festivals, Christingle Service and Christmas production dress rehearsals!
