What the school offers its staff

We are intensely proud of all we do, and know it is our combination of our nurturing, distinctively Christian ethos, strong teaching and academic success which ensures children feel safe, are happy and learn well here.

We believe that our pupils are the leaders of the future. We want them to be successful adults - gainfully employed in jobs they like, and living adult lives in successful, loving relationships. Because of this we make learning engaging and memorable for our children, with a constant focus on progress and achievement so that all children make good progress at our school and attain the academic levels which will open doors for them when they seek employment.

At the same time we actively promote and model strong values (and associated actions) and communication skills so that children learn how to secure and maintain friendships and positive relationships.

By placing an equal focus on academic achievement and how we treat one another, we believe we have just the right combination of ‘try hard, be nice’ which provides the very backbone of what our school provides for our children every day.

We are a Church of England School with very close links to our Parish Church of Christ Church, and receive visits and support every week from the Vicar (Sandra) and her team of Youth Workers. Our Christian ethos is obvious as you walk around our schools, and expect everyone to respect this. However we welcome families of all faiths, and those of none, to our school and are pleased to be able to serve all who live in our community.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Good Shepherd Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that all our recruitment and employment practices reflect this commitment.

The safety and wellbeing of every child in the care of Ottershaw Christ Church C of E Infant and Junior Schools is our absolute priority. We expect all of our staff, pupils, parents, LGC members, Trust directors, visitors, contractors and third-party professionals to share this view. The safeguarding and protection of children is everyone's responsibility.
