St Mary's C of E (Aided) Infant School
We work very closely together with St Mary's School to support their delivery of an education founded on Christian values. Rev'd Jane gives Christian teaching to pupils and staff as well as visiting to delivery Assembly. The children enjoy walking down to St Mary's Church and learning about the Christian way of life and the end of term services are full of linked stories and wonderful singing and participation by all.
Our Open the Book activity with the children has been a great success and we are now in our third year of delivery. On Monday mornings a small group from St Mary's Church visit the school to read and act out a story from the Bible. The children are then encouraged to think about the message or moral in the context of their own lives. It is a privilege and a joy to see how they take in and remember the stories we tell.
