School Worship
Worship takes place each day in our school.  There are planned themes for each week and worship on a Wednesday morning. The Parish Mass or Family Service is celebrated in the school hall on Friday mornings at 9.00 am  during term time, to which the congregation, parents, friends and the wider community are invited. Each week a class takes a major part in the service and fellowship continues after the mass with refreshments afterwards.

Religious Education
The majority of Religious Education in school has a focus on Christianity. However, there is some teaching of other religion, such as Judaism and Islam.

Would You Like To Get Involved?
A number of members of the congregation and other community members help out
in school and we always welcome more. Please contact the Headteacher
Mrs Belynda Fellows, if you are able to help out on a regular basis in school.
No special qualifications are necessary – just patience and understanding and
an interest in young people. The safety and well-being of the pupils in our care
is the highest priority and any helpers in school must have an enhanced
Disclosure and Barring Service (previously Criminal Records Bureau) assessment undertaken.

And please do remember to keep the whole school community – pupils, staff and teachers, governors, parents and clergy, in your prayers.
