Selsted Church of England Primary School
From Tiny Acorns, Might Oaks Grow
Our school falls under the parish of Elham (following the realignment of parish boundaries in 2015). The church at Elham is called St Mary's and we look forward to taking the children to visit when possible. We are also very lucky to be able to attend Acrise Church regularly for trips including our Year 6 children's leavers service. We are also working with St. Peter's Church and Swingfield Parish Council at the moment on a World War One project.
Mrs Woodgate attended the licensing of Reverend Jane Weeks, in February 2016. Reverend Jane leads collective worship every Tuesday at Selsted. In addition to this, Reverend Jane leads our annual Christingle, Easter and Year 6 leavers' services.

Every Wednesday at school we have 'Prayer Space' which is run by our Higher Level Teaching Assistant, Ms Hannah Newton, who is a practicing Christian.
For what we are about to receive,
may the Lord make us truly thankful
Thank you for each happy day
For fun, for friends and work and play
Thank you for your loving care
At school, at home and everywhere.
May our school be welcoming
May our school be encouraging
Let friendship flourish here
Let learning fill our day
Give us the strength to do our best
Give us the hope to carry on
Be our guide in all we do
Lord, make this school your home too
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord
