Our Church School Vision
Dishforth Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School
We are proud, as a voluntary controlled Church of England primary school, to be part of the Diocese of York.
As a voluntary controlled (VC) school, the daily worship within the school will follow the Anglican tradition of school worship and will contribute to the sense of community and strong Christian ethos that is a feature of Anglican schools. The governing body will include two foundation governors nominated by the Church and the local authority.
Our Foundation Governors are:
Rev Susanne Jukes and Mrs Wendy Potter
As a church school at the heart of the village community, Christian values underpin our work, our relationships and our commitment to ensure equality of opportunity for all pupils. We will strive to make our school welcoming, open and friendly with a positive Christian ethos where the views of the children and parents are valued.
Our local church is Baldersby St James. Reverend Susanne is a regular visitor to school.
