Ethos Statement

Recognising their historic foundation, The Minster Nursery and Infant School and The Minster Junior School will preserve and develop their religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.

The schools aim to serve their community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. They encourage an understanding of the meaning of faith and promote Christian values through the experience they offer to all their pupils.

Race Equality Statement

The Minster Nursery and Infant School and The Minster  Junior School are Church of England schools, institutionally rooted in the Christian faith. The Schools actively develop the full human potential in each person, whether pupil, governor, parent/carer or member of staff.

The Schools’ ethos of care and their commitment to justice are the foundation of their aims in educating the whole school community to make its proper contribution to society.

The Schools therefore take a positive stand against racism. The schools actively draw attention to the achievements and positive contribution to Britain and the world made by all ethnic groups and will not tolerate any form of racism.
