Why 'Christ the Sower'?

Christ the Sower is a name chosen by those involved in the establishment of the school in 2004 and has great meaning for us.

It is taken from Jesus' Parable of the Sower, which is found in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, and tells of a farmer who went out to sow, but had varying success depending on the type of soil that received the seed.

Our Christian foundation is very important to us and we strive to provide the good earth for all our children to flourish.  We believe we offer the opportunity for children to learn and explore who they are created to be.  We care for all our children and support them to learn and grow.  Our name inspires us to offer the best learning foundations and opportunities enabling every child to be and do the best they can.

'Christ the Sower' inspires and underpins our school vision running through the heart of our school and is reflected in many different ways including our class seed names and our on-site SureStart Children's Centre is called Seedlings.


 The name 'Christ the Sower' was also chosen because there is an agricultural link. Our site in Grange Farm was, not so long ago, producing crops on good North Buckinghamshire soil. Some of the people who lived and worked there, and who had to leave when Milton Keynes was built, still live in the area. Through the name, we remember the history and growth of our school.
