What it means to be a Church school

We are proud to be a church school and value our links with the diocese and our surrounding church communities. The impact of being part of a community immersed in the Christian faith is very hard to define. We have reflected deeply on this issue and asked ourselves the following questions:

Who are we?
Why are we here?
How then do we live? 


This is what June and Joan; our wonderful reading helpers had to say: 

Who are we?

Why are we here?

How then do we live?

We are here to improve a child’s reading and instil a love of words.


We are helpers of the community. We want to make a difference.


We are big supporters of Loscoe Church of England Primary School. We have enjoyed watching the school evolve.


We serve children who need some extra care.



I just love being here!


I’ve been here as a member of Loscoe community as a child, parent, grandparent, foster carer, governor, and member of the PTFA


It keeps us out of mischief!


If we had time we’d be here every day!


If children can’t read they can’t access things. We don’t want any children at Loscoe being isolated.


We work under the guidance of caring teachers.

We give the extra care and attention to children who don’t have special time with a grown up. We spot these children and make it our mission to have a good relationship with them.


We watch children begin reading with us who are withdrawn and they soon come out of their shell.


We are listening ears.


We show respect and are respected by the children.

This is what some of our children had to say: 

Who are we ?

Why are we here?

How then do we live?


We are kind and friendly.


We are Christians and none Christians.


We are visitors of the Church.


We are hard workers- we talk; we listen and work in a team.
