We are a Church School
Salhouse VC C of E 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'.

Salhouse VC C of E 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.
