Huxley Church of England Primary School is a caring, inclusive Christian community where Worship plays a central role. The Christian ethos informs everyday life at Huxley and we believe this is reflected in the relationships between all members of the school community where every person is valued.
Every school day concludes with an act of Christian Collective Worship.
We follow a long term values plan which concentrates on Christian Values and Biblical passages as well as ensuring that the children are given opportunities to reflect on Bristish values, global events and their own rights based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Services are usually led by a member of staff but, on most Tuesdays, Rev. Chris Deakin of St. Peter’s Church, Hargrave visits to lead our service in his own inimitable way, sometimes bringing with him friends to assist with his Open the Book assemblies and frequently sharing his musicianship.

We also have other guest speakers, including visitors from Tarporley Methodist Church and Ian McDougall, friend of the school and former diocesan advisor.
