Church School

The School’s Background

Acle St Edmund C of E Primary School was founded by the Church of England in 1860 to educate the children of the village of Acle. This continues to be our central purpose, and we welcome children of all faiths and none, from within our catchment area and beyond. We maintain close links with the parish church of St Edmund as well as the the local Methodist Church. We aim to provide an education of the highest quality and, through the experiences we offer to all our children, seek to support them in developing their own moral, spiritual and ethical standpoint.

As a Church of England School we will be inspected against the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist School (SIAMS) evaluation schedule, with the main question being:

How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by  leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?      

Our Vision

Our school vision 'From a tiny seed...all things are possible' shapes our school policies, actions and our school improvement plan.

In Autumn 2021, staff, governors and members of the clergy came together to develop a shared definition for spiritual development which is:

At Acle Primary School spiritual development is defined as the life long journey of developing as a person even through times of challenge and difficulties. Spiritual development is developing our self-identity and discovering the essence of who we are. This is influenced by our relationships with ourselves, others and the world around us in all its beauty and pain. We develop spiritually through reflecting or thinking about what we see, hear and read which leads to a changed way of thinking or a change in the way we act.


We aim to provide opportunities, right across the curriculum, for pupils to develop their curiosity, be creative, ask questions, reflect on their experiences and change their perspective.
