Filey CE Nursery & Infants Academy – Our School Vision Statement
“Teach children how to live and they will remember it all of their lives”
(Proverbs Chapter 22 V6)
Our school is a Church of England School rooted in “Community, Compassion and Friendship” We deliver a creative curriculum which promotes moral, spiritual, mental and physical development. Our curriculum is interesting and encourages each child to do their best, to love learning & to appreciate each other. Our school is part of the community of Filey and we develop every child’s appreciation of our community heritage and the world in which we live.
We endeavour to uphold Christian teaching to:
“Shine as lights in the world and love as Jesus loves us”
(Philippians 2:15, John13.34)
St John’s is our local Parish Church and the children regularly visit throughout the Christian Calendar. Harvest Festival, Christmas Tree Festival, Bell Ringing, Christingle and Easter services are all celebrated by both the school and the community. As a church of England School we share the Christian message with Nativity and Easter boxes made by the children. Local businesses, hotels and public buildings are proud to display these boxes for the whole community to enjoy.

Our friends from St John’s Church run a weekly Bible story club including art, drama and music. This takes place on a Monday lunchtime for year one and two pupils alternate half terms.
‘Open the Book’
Open the Book is run half termly by volunteers from St John’s Church. It is a ten to fifteen minute Bible story providing a strong consistent and ongoing feature for Collective Worship. Pupils participate sharing the Bible stories. ‘Open the Book’ is part of Bible Society in partnership with The Diocese.
The Butterfly Project
Every Friday afternoon a group of our year two pupils visit The Hylands Care Home in Filey which is the only Butterfly Care Home in Yorkshire. Butterfly Care Homes were founded by Dr Sheard in 1995 pioneering a household model for residents with dementia. A key part of their work is inter-generational work and residents from The Hylands recently joined us at school for an Old Time Music Hall performance by our year two pupils.
Watch this beautiful version of Jeanette Winterson’s nativity story. This 20-minute film was directed by Katherine Marriott and starred Richard Avery as the lion, Gordon Meredith as the donkey, Katherine Mariott as the angel and Caroline Coath as the unicorn. The film was recorded in St Mary’s Church Beverley.
