Ethos Statement

Clearwater Church of England Academy provides the highest quality education within the context of caring Christian beliefs and practices, in close affiliation with the local Church. Our curriculum connects home, school and church, and reinforces the fact that the values we celebrate in school shape the whole of our children’s lives. Children, of any faith or none, are given the opportunity to develop their own spirituality, to be curious and ask big questions, to celebrate and to make good choices.
