What’s in a name?
We take our name from our close links with St Blaise Church Milton. We are a Church of England (C of E), controlled school. This means we are ‘controlled’ by the Local Education authority and ‘aided’ by the diocese, the church. Our Christian links are very important to us and underpin all that we do.
As our school grows we want to reflect our strong sense of togetherness and inclusion through our bible verse.
The Lord God made all kinds of beautiful trees grow there and produce good fruit with seed in it according to their kinds and God saw that it was good.
We see ourselves as the beautiful trees in a growing orchard. Each of us is important and unique. We work together to produce good things, we want our children to go out into the world to share their good fruit.
Exploring and achieving as we grow together
Our Christian values have been revised with our school community.
Together we love and respect. We are creative, we are determined, we are confident, we are kind.
We try to reflect these values in all that we do.
