The Christian Life of our School


  • School Church Partnership


    The school works closely with our local church St John the Baptist to ensure that our pupils receive both a first class education and the spiritual guidance that will help them to change our school and Christian values into personal virtues.  The headteacher meets every month with a team from the church to discuss joint projects, collective worship, services and opportunities to work together to enhance our children's experiences.  This has been really successful with the school attending and contributing to services for Harvest, Advent, St John the Baptist Day, Christmas, Christingle, Lent, Easter, Ascension and Remembrance.  Reverend Sami Lyndsey is also on our school governing body and a parent of the school, meaning he has a complete oversight of the school from every angle.  The church regularly lead collective worship in the school and come along to join us for special days and occasions.  The church have also started a lunchtime bible club once a week for our older children.  As well as our children visiting the church.  Once a year the church visit us and we hold a family picnic and worship in our school grounds.  A much loved day of happiness and coming together.  Photo's below!


    Apart from SJB church we are lucky to have really close relationships with Holy Trinity church, who perform twice a year to our pupils to ensure the true meaning of Christmas and Easter are understood.  We have Avenue Community Church come in to deliver worship.  Being located int he wonderful part of Leicester that we are means that we have Gudwaras, Mandirs, temples, Mosques, Synagogues and other Christian denomination churches within walking distance.  We take full advantage of this wonderful fact during our multi faith fortnight to ensure our children get to experience, respect and understand the other faiths around us.
