About us – Morton Church of England Primary School

Morton CE Primary School is a happy and friendly village school situated at the heart of the local community. We are a school with high standards expected of the children within a caring, Christian ethos. Our school brings together children aged from 2 to 11 in a place that provides a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment where children can work confidently together. Our most recent SIAMS recognised us as ‘OUTSTANDING’ and recognises the positive influence that our school has on all of the children in our care.

The school values partnership with parents, carers and the community to create a stimulating, learning environment for the children. We plan an active curriculum that aims to be vibrant, challenging and creative with clear skills progression for learning. The school is at the heart of the village of Morton, just north of Bourne. We have an Out of School Club (ClubActive) which operates on our site for Breakfast and After School Childcare.

Brown’s Church of England Primary School ‘Caring. Learning. Enjoying, Achieving. All within the love of God’ Brown’s Church of England Primary School was established in 1691 by Edward Browne, we are pleased to serve the communities of Horbling and Swaton. We have a long history of service to the local community stretching back over 300 years.

As a Church of England school which is part of the Lincolnshire Anglican Academy Trust, we value the spiritual as well the educational development of all our children. We seek to be inclusive of everyone and to help our children to build their lives on firm moral foundations of love and service of one another.

Parents are welcomed and valued as partners in their child’s education, as we believe that our children learn best when staff and parents work together. Together we can ensure our school remains the popular and very special place that it is today.

The school staff will promote and model clear and consistent expectations to pupils which promotes the safety and welfare of all; this is a crucial part of our culture of safety and care for every adult and pupil within the school. Pupils and staff will begin the term discussing what good learning behaviours are and how staff and pupils will show this in the school daily.

At Brown’s we care about every pupil and want them to feel safe so that their learning potential and feelings of self -worth are optimised. Staff do this by always striving to create school environments that are calm, kind, welcoming and where they promote strong, positive relationships between adults and pupils.

We believe that every child has the power to achieve and we will help to guide, protect, support and nurture pupils, helping them to make the right choices and when this does not happen, to help them put that right and to be forgiven by others as well as forgive themselves, we will help each other to see that mistakes happen and they are there to learn from.

We are all extremely proud of our school and committed to providing the very best possible education for all of our children. Brown’s Church of England Primary is a school where children are happy and feel a sense of belonging. They are supported, encouraged, nurtured and loved. They enjoy learning in a stimulating and attractive environment in which each child is encouraged to have fun whilst achieving their potential in the widest sense. It is within this positive nurturing ethos that children understand the skills they need in order to learn. We want our children to develop lively and enquiring minds, to discuss and debate, to be creative and imaginative and to apply themselves well as they strive to reach their full potential in all aspects of school life.

We live through our values of Hope, Peace, Courage, Friendship, Trust and Compassion and every decision we make within the school environment is made by firstly considering what is in the best interest of our children. In this way, children lie at the heart of everything we do.
