Faith in Action

We serve our parish and local community in many ways, sharing God's love with others whenever we can.

Some ways in which we do this are:

  • Holding special, reflective services and assemblies for the whole school community, especially during Advent and Holy Week.
  • Good Work Assemblies are held every Friday.
  • Music Assemblies are held at the end of each half term – all members of the school community are welcome to attend.
  • Liaising with our parish priest in preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation.
  • Participating in weekly parish mass.
  • 'Inspire' Workshops led by each class.
  • Parents are invited to work alongside their child in school – 'Stay and Play' and 'Reading Together'.

Wednesday Word

We send a copy of the Wednesday Word home to every family in our school community.

The Wednesday Word is a double sided A4 leaflet which explains the Sunday Gospel. The children receive the leaflet to take home to share with the rest of their family. This creates an opportunity for the Word to be present in the homes of each family connected to our school.

Charities

Throughout the year we support many different charities.

Staff, pupils and families are always extremely generous in their support of others. Money is raised through fundraising events, fairs and charitable donations from the whole school community.

In recent years we have made donations to Cafod, St. Mary's Hospice, The Father Hudson Society, Autism Awareness, Macmillan Cancer Appeal, The Lords Mayor's Charity to name but a few.

The Gambia

We have developed links with Bright Star Nursery in The Gambia.

This school relies on charitable support to provide local children with an education that they otherwise would not receive.

Very recent fundraising efforts enabled the school to complete an additional classroom and build an extra toilet. Our work with and support for the Bright Star Nursery helps our children to develop a greater understanding of what life is like for those less fortunate than ourselves.
