Church Links

As a church school we work closely with St Andrew’s Church and the local Diocesan team.

At the beginning of each new term the whole school participate in a short service at St Andrew’s Church, then throughout the year the Vicar and some of the Clergy team come along to the school and lead whole school worship from time to time.

Each term all year groups from Reception to Year 6 visit the church for a worship service on a Monday morning, the church wardens stay for these services.

As well as these services we invite St Andrew’s congregation along to any special Worship Times we have throughout the year eg the Easter Service, Remembrance, Christmas and St Andrew’s Day.
