Church Distinctiveness

Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good

How do we fulfil the Church of England’s vision for education?

At Tunstall C of E Primary School, we are deeply Christian in character by living out our School Christian Values daily. Collective Worship is the ‘heartbeat’ 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 Alan Pinnegar and St. John the Baptist, Tunstall, which we use on many occasions, R.E lessons, Collective Worship and to mark key dates in the Christian calendar.

We embrace the Church of England’s vision which is deeply Christian and proclaims Jesus’ promise of “Life in all its fullness” (John 10:10) through the four elements of community, dignity, wisdom and hope.

Our Christian values of forgiveness, perseverance, truthfulness, kindness, service and friendship underpin and enhance everything we ALL do within the community and fellowship of our school.              



The British Values of tolerance, rule of law, individual liberty, democracy and respect go ‘hand in hand’ with our Christina Values. They have been woven into our deeply 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
