Being a Church School

Nursling Christian Values

At Nursling Church of England Primary School we are committed to our three values of Love, Hope and Courage.

Our values help form our curriculum and collective worship. They are part of everything we do as a school family and as part of our wider community.

Collective Worship

Messages, resources and links from Jeff Williams, Diocese of Winchester to help families throughout this period of lockdown and home learning…


As a Church of England school we gather together for a collective worship every day of the week.

This is an important opportunity to develop our pupils’ and staff spiritual, moral, social and cultural thoughts and reflection.

Every gathering begins with a liturgy and ends with a prayer.

Each one embeds our three Christian values of: Love, Hope and Courage.

Links to the Church

As a Church of England School, we have strong links with both St Boniface Church in Nursling and St John’s Church in Rownhams; otherwise known as ‘Twinspires!’

At different times of the year we walk up to St John’s Church to have a special service. Year 6 have a leavers day at St Boniface Church. Click on the links below to see our most recent events at church.

We have been busy turning the gazebo into a spiritual space; somewhere for the children to go to reflect, be peaceful and find friendship. Everyone made a prayer flag. Can you find yours?

Our Spiritual Space was blessed by Mr Cole.

As a Church of England Primary School we receive a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection through our Diocese every five years. An Inspector visits for the day to evaluate and grade specific areas that are linked to our school’s evaluation and development plan as follows:

  • How distinctive and efective is the school as a Church School?
  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective is the religious education?
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?

It also checks that the school meets the statutory requirements for collective acts of worship and RE. 

Nursling was last inspected in July 2016 and we received a ‘Good’ report. Please click on the report below for more details…
