Our Church School
At West Kingsdown C of E Primary School we are distinctive in our Christian character by living out our School Christian Values daily. Collective Worship is a key part of our school day, setting the tone for the behaviour and ethos of our school family. We have strong links with our local Vicar, Reverend Sarah and St Edmunds Church which we use on many occasions, from R.E lessons, class collective worship and to mark key dates in the Christian calendar.
The British Values of tolerance, rule of law, individual liberty, democracy and respect go ‘hand in hand’ with our Christina Values. They have been weaved in to our distinctively Christian character by following the example of Jesus and how he treated people of all races, beliefs and culture. This Bible verse explains this clearly. “For God called you to do good. He is your example and you must follow in His steps. 1 Peter 2:21
Our Christian values of love, trust, courage, and respect underpin and enhance everything we all do within the community and fellowship of our school.
St. Edmund's church is a Grade 1 listed building known locally as the "church in the woods”. It is set in extensive woodland to the west of Fawkham Road, approximately 500 yards from its junction with London Road in the hilltop village of West Kingsdown in Kent.
Nowadays the church is the centre of a vibrant Christian community within the village of West Kingsdown. Further information about our Parish, its people, the services at St Edmund’s, activities and our church is available on their website.
Rev. Sarah Corry leads us in worship each week both in school and when possible, in church.
