This is the website for church schools in the Diocese of Ely. We support our schools and communities to achieve high standards of education.

Our Christian ethos enables a strong sense of community through learning, love and leadership for our children and families, of all faiths and none.

Our Christian vision is the rock on which our values stand, enabling all children to flourish.

Life in all its fullness

I have come so you so you may have life in all its fullness.” John 10:10

Summer Holidays 2021

So many thanks go to all the staff, children and parents in our schools over this Summer Term and for the whole of this academic year of 2021, a year like no other and we hope and pray that life and work will be better in the new academic year of 2021 – 2022.

There have been so many challenges of health, learning and in just being together, but we are inspired by everyone in our schools who have met the challenges and delivered more than just education to the children. Schools have been places of sanctuary, where friends can still gather and where we have all brought our thoughts and prayers to God.

We hope that everyone in our schools and communities has the chance to have a good break over the Summer holidays. We hope there is time to meet with those we love, to share fun, relaxation and adventures, whether at home on ‘staycation’ or a little further away.

We look forward to working together as we open our schools again in September.

Prayers for Hope from two of our schools

Dear Father,

Help us to share the hope in our hearts with one another. Enable us to give hope to others through Your work amongst us. May our land flourish by the preaching of Your name. In Jesus name. Amen

From Mepal and Witcham C of E Primary School – A prayer as part of their Giving Hope Passports

Dear God, Thank you for our NHS and for helping us through these rough times.

Help us to stay happy and healthy and to look after each other… We are hopeful that things return to normal soon. Please bless everyone with light and peace.

range of roles within the NHS, and help encourage young people consider a career
in the sector.

11 year-olds Abigail and Ophelia, pupils at Isleham C of E Primary School, created
