The Rt Revd Alison White, the Bishop of Hull
During a RE lesson Mrs Parker’s Magpie children were surprised to discovered that, The Rt Revd Alison White, the Bishop of Hull was their class Governor. Each class has ‘adopted’ a Governor (in some cases more), to add immeasurably to Governors’ understanding of our school, its staff and pupils.
Expanding on their computing skills they sent an Email to the Rt Revd Alison White. The Computing Curriculum ‘ensures that pupils become digital literate’. The learning of how to write an email in the right style also links to the English Curriculum.
The Bishop of Hull, after answering the email, was able to take a tour of St. Andrew’s School to see the fabulous work that was being done.
Religious education at St Andrew’s combines the core study of Christianity with the study of a variety of other faiths. This reflects the multi-cultural make up of our nation and promotes respect, tolerance and understanding for the beliefs of others which is promoted as part of our programme. The school follows the York Diocese Religious Education Policy and children are given the opportunity for daily worship and reflection. In addition to a wealth of class room activities, children also participate in whole school family challenges with a religious focus.
