We have a close and supportive relationship with our linked church school, St Matthew’s Primary School. We are delighted to welcome the school for their end of term and festival services and for the church to be used for their Nativity plays and other educational visits.
Helen regularly takes Assemblies at the school, as do other members of the congregation. Our church’s involvement also comes through its representatives on the school’s Governing Body and in any ways in which the whole church or individual members of the congregation can support the school and the children’s learning.
The school’s emphasis on encouraging pupils to reach the highest academic standards possible, whilst developing the attitudes and skills necessary to become healthy and effective citizens which includes a full commitment to living out the Christian faith through the school day and beyond is one which the church is happy to endorse and help to further, where it can.
