St. Anne’s Church is used for celebrations at times of festivals such as Harvest and Christmas. Class worship is also held in church, with a different class planning and leading it every half term. The church building and grounds are also studied as part of the school curriculum.
St Anne's Church plays a key role in our school and we work as team for the common good. We enjoy leading our worship there and we regularly invite the congregation to events at school such as half termly coffee mornings, spirituality days, Christmas lunch and our Y6 musical show. Mrs Shipley, a member of the church, runs KS1 Christian Club each Tuesday in school and Mrs Robson sometimes leads worship.
Rev Paul is instrumental in the delivery of our collective worship each Wednesday and he has also been involved in the RE curriculum, talking to pupils about God and the church; he is also one of our foundation governors.
Our Harvest service was held at St Anne's with Rev Paul and the congregation, when we supported both our local community by donating food products and also Bishop Julian's Harvest Appeal, raising money to support the Mulanje orphans in Malawi.

In the run up to Christmas, we worked with St Anne's and our Gardening Group as part of the Christmas Angel Festival.
KS2 also held their Christmas Concert at St Anne's.
In Spring 2, KS2 will be celebrating Easter in church and KS1 will be holding their Mothers' Day service.
