Our Church

Brailsford is a Church of England Controlled Primary School    



All Saint's Church - Brailsford

Church schools are recognised for their distinctive Christian ethos and the impact this has on standards and all round education.  We are an inclusive school and serve equally those of the Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith.

Collective Worship 

Children take part in an act of Collective Worship every day; this is usually held from 3:00pm every day. Teachers and children take it in turns to lead our daily worship. The majority of our Worship is based around the Christian faith. However, in order to broaden pupils' understanding, we also look to draw links between key festivals and celebrations from other faiths and those from the Christian faith.

The church school system is managed and developed by individual Dioceses.  Each Diocese has a Diocesan Board of Education which oversees local developments and supports schools on a day-to-day basis.  Our school is one of 110 church schools in the Diocese of Derby.

The Diocese inspects their church schools approximately every 5 years and publishes a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) report.  Brailsford was rated "outstanding" at its last inspection in January 2015.  Please click this  if you would like to read the previous report.

We have close links with the church and we hold services at various times during the year. We also visit our church as part of our PSHE and Topic studies. Both Reverend Paul Taylor and our Methodist Minister Tim Morris come in to school and lead Collective Worship and curriculum based learning.
