Belong, Believe, Achieve
We are proud of our strong links with our local Church - Church of Resurrection with St Barnabas and also with Manchester Cathedral.
Rev. Maria is a regular visitor to our school. She leads our worship in school on a regular basis and also when we visit the church. The clergy also support us in teaching Religious Education.
In the last school year, the clergy provided a training session on prayer, which was very helpful to all staff and we now have an outdoor Prayer Space outside the Year 4 classroom, which children can visit anytime they are in the playground, for a time of quiet reflection and prayer.
The church is not big enough to host all the school with its own regular congregation and therefore a group is invited to represent the school at key Church events.
Our services in church are always advertised in advance and we do hope that family and friends will join us.
At the start of the school year, those who were new to school were invited to attend a special service on the Sunday morning. Children attended wearing their school uniforms and members of the church prayed for each of the school communities represented.
During Advent we are pleased to take part in the Posada story telling activities.
Our children experienced the Easter Experience in the school hall.
We would like to say a big thank you to the ladies from Mothers Union at our Church who knitted lots of Easter chicks, which we sold to staff and visitors to raise money for Francis House Children’s Charity.
We are privileged to have a strong relationship with Manchester Cathedral. At some point during the school year all our pupils will visit the cathedral. It is a valuable resource for teaching our children about our own faith and as a historical building. We also take part in some exciting arts projects that are run by the Cathedral.
In the last school year, Reception to Year 6 took part in activities at the Cathedral and this year ,Year 1 to Year 6, will visit the Cathedral to participate in workshops based around our Religious Education curriculum.
If your child is aged seven or older and you would like them to receive Holy Communion in school and at our church, please complete the forms provided by Rev Maria they are available from the school office.
