West Bretton church

We have strong links with the church in West Bretton and enjoy celebrating important festivals such as Harvest and Christmas in this special place with parents and other members of the local community.  Glee Club, our school choir, also sings at special Sunday services like Mother’s Day, Harvest and Christmas.

Every Christmas we work alongside the church and support Operation Christmas Child by filling shoeboxes with small gifts etc for some of the poorest children in the world.  At Harvest the church auctions off the school produce and the proceeds go to the children’s designated charity.  In 2016, the children chose to send this to Methodist centres in Europe to help to refugees.

Reverend Canon Kelly, the Anglican minister, visits our school most Tuesdays and leads an act of collective worship for our children.  These assemblies celebrate different Christian festivals and stories, as well as promoting Christian values.  In addition to this, children learn about festivals from other religions around the world in both RE and other collective worship sessions.

The church has assisted us in forging a link with a primary school in Tanzania. One of their teachers has visited the school and we have raised over £1,000 for their school which was spent on a new computer and concreting the floor of the classroom. Our children also link with their school through topics.
