We are a Church of England primary school, with close links to our parish Church.
We have services in the Church six times a year, led by Revd Ben Jones, who is one of our school Governors. The Church’s children’s worker, Kirstine and Charlotte, lead Collective Worship every week in school for Early Years, KS1 and KS2, as well as running an extra-curricular club for the children called ‘Star Club’.
Benny Goodson, part of the church’s Worship Team, leads Collective Worship every Tuesday for KS2, teaching the children praise and worship songs. He also teaches Music in KS2.
The church leads activities all year round which children from St Mary’s can access, eg a week long holiday club in August and weekly Sunday School ‘SMKC’ which meets in the school hall.
Through the year, we hold special services in church specially for school families, in which our children take part, eg singing in the choir on Mothering Sunday.
