Welcome to the website of the Federation of St Alphege Church of England Schools in Solihull. Our Federation comprises St Alphege C of E Infant and Nursery School and St Alphege C of E Junior School. Our Christian School Vision is central to all we do.
‘Let the children come to me’
We value Children. We welcome and cherish every child. School staff are child centred and willing to go the extra mile for everyone at the school. Every individual will feel valued and loved by God. The children have an equally important role and contribution to make. ‘Come to me’ – The central purpose of our Christian school is to enable the children to come close to God and learn about Him. In essence to experience ‘life in all its fullness.’
‘and do not stop them’
We are inclusive and adaptable. We make the curriculum and God accessible to all. We want to see the school through the eyes of a child and in all matters ask how this will impact upon them.
‘because the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.
Kingdom of Heaven is a phrase that is often interpreted as God’s will or His plan for how people should live on earth. It is how we live out our Christian faith and values, how we act and think. It is also about Heaven belonging to the children. We believe in school this is about how we teach and model Christian faith to the children.
