We are extremely proud of our Christian ethos and the strong relationships within our school that reflect these values. 

“All adults and pupils respect each other, are cared for and nurtured to reach their full potential. All members of the school community are aware of these values and recognise their impact within a rich curriculum and the outstanding educational provision at this school. “ taken from our ‘Outstanding’ SIAMS report March 2015.

The Worship Team 2021 - 2022

 Our Worship team assist with the planning of Worship themes,  they help during daily Worship and set up the weekly reflection table in school.  They take ownership of the Worship 'big book' and contribute to the self-evaluation and monitoring of Worship in School.  However, this is not a role specifically allocated to them - every child in school is encouraged to get involved.

 

Year 4 children planning Worship with Rev'd Sue

We work together as a Christian family evaluating Worship and we love to put our thoughts and opinions down in the the Worship 'Reflection' Book

Our Children thrive on leading Worship

Some of our Year 5 and 6 children planned and led Worship on the importance of Rules.  They explored the British Values of 'Rule of Law' and 'Individual Liberty' linked to current events and gave thoughtful and respectful responses to everyone's different opinions and attitudes.  They linked this to our school rules and vision as well as God's law and the 10 commandments.  

One of our Year 5 girls led Worship based around 'Forgiveness' at the start of Lent.

Stop Press!!! We have an important announcement! This week we have been involved in a very special duty... interviewing for the new Priest in charge of St Peter's and St John's. It all began with an interview meeting, joining with the children of Read St John's. We decided what we would like our new Vicar to be like and carefully selected appropriate questions to ask. Then we interviewed the candidates at Read St John's school. Our viewpoints were discussed and shared with the interview panel. The Bishop of Burnley was there to hear our ideas and views. We have truly flourished as worship leaders and feel part of our church community. We will remember this experience for a very long time and can't wait to find out who our new Vicar is... Watch this space.      The Worship Council Sept 2021

The Lord is my ROCK! Performed by all the children in worship!

In Worship we enjoy working together...

Working together as a Christian Family to achieve our best, learning with confidence to fulfil our dreams.

We have enjoyed taking part in the RE conferences at Whalley Abbey with our cluster schools.   

Our RE displays around school are magnificent!
