Castor Church of England Primary School




Our School Vision

“We have faith in God, ourselves and everyone around us”

Jesus said, ‘if you believe, you will see the glory of God’ (John Ch 11 vs 40). He also gave his disciples a new commandment - to ‘love one another’ (John Ch13 vs 34). Yet still, “The apostles said to the Lord ‘increase our faith’” (Luke Ch17 vs5).

Castor Church of England Primary School will be a place where all are encouraged to search for signs of God’s glory and, in so doing, people’s faith will be increased, and they will have the grace to follow Jesus’ commandment to love one another.
