As a Church School, we are an active partner within the community, attending a range of community events across the year. Our School Choir is particularly active in sharing the Christian message to our local community: carol singing in the main street, carol singing for the elderly residents and visitors in care homes and day centres and singing in Church for Advent.
A recent venture, in the last couple of years, has been the pupil’s participation in St. Stephen’s Church’s Crib Service on Christmas Eve: a truly powerful and memorable way to celebrate the arrival of the Christ child. All events provide an opportunity for us, not only to share the Christian message of Christmas, but also to showcase our wonderful pupils as they ‘let their light shine’.
We have worked hard to form an effective and positive relationship with our local parish Church of St. Stephens. Fr. David works closely with school: supporting both staff and children pastorally, leading worship once a week, attending governors meetings, leading Q & A sessions in classes and attending a range of school events.
“The headteacher and deputy headteacher drive the school’s vision to ensure all in their community are able to ‘let their light shine’. They have successfully improved the life chances for all in a loving and nurturing environment.”
