A Church School

We are a Church School

Salhouse CofE Primary is a Church school. We are part of a large collection of schools within the Diocese of Norwich.

The Diocese of Norwich is the Church of England across the areas of Norfolk and Waveney — a Christian presence serving every community through a family of 650 churches and 110 schools and academies; together 'Committed to Growth'.

You can learn more about what it means to be a Church of England School at dioceseofnorwich.org/about/us/schools

Collective Worship

Salhouse CofE Primary School practises Collective Worship. Collective worship is, at its best, an exemplification of the vision and ethos of the school. It is viewed as an integral part of school life and has a high value to all in the community. It is an opportunity to foster a sense of personal and collective spirituality and makes a major contribution to the development of strong Christian values.

Worship reflects the character of individual schools, but there are common ingredients to all.

All Saints Church

This is All Saints Church in Salhouse

We love the days when we visit the church. The whole school walks in a long snake across the fields between our school and the church. You can find out more about our church by clicking here.

The Reverend Darleen Plattin is a good friend to our school. We like it when she spends time with us.

We also love visiting the Baptist Church in Salhouse where sometimes we get to play on the lovely grounds surrounding the church.

Mr Gay is the pastor of Salhouse Baptist Church. He and Mrs Gay are very welcome visitors to our school.
