Our Church School

At the Dales Federation, our aim, mission and vision is for 'Happy, Successful Children'. The information and links on our website explain how and why we will achieve this. We are proudly a Church of England school. Our Christian foundation reminds us that the school is here to serve all children, their families and community, regardless of their religion, beliefs and faith – all are welcome. We teach children about a wide range of religions, including Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Sikhism, but it is our Christian foundation on which the school vision and mission are built. We use the teachings of Jesus as models for how we should live, care and respond to each other. We celebrate His birth and reflect on the sacrifice of his death. We warmly welcome all children and their families, especially those who face challenging circumstances and we aim to enable all to flourish as we strive to offer our children, parents and staff, ‘life in all its fullness’ (John, 10:10)
