Stretton Handley Church of England Primary school in Derby diocese has won the national MyCofESchool competition. The contest invited pupils at Church primary schools to celebrate what their school means to them, in a three minute film.
The Christian ethos is at the very heart of our school at Stretton Handley. In the video the children wanted to show how Christian values weave through our daily lives and why this makes our school a really great place to learn, laugh and have fun!
The Peak District winning team will join the Bishop of Oxford, Chair of the Board of Education, for tea in the House of Lords.
The Bishop of Oxford congratulated all the entrants: “We were delighted to see the wide range of entries in the competition. The children’s enthusiasm for their schools and the values they find there are inspirational. Their entries are a tribute to the staff, parents and governors and all those who have helped lay the foundations of our church schools over the centuries. My congratulations to the children for their hard work and imagination creating their entries. It’s always hard to pick one winner but I’m very much looking forward to meeting pupils from the winning school over tea in the House of Lords.”
