Church Links

Church links and Community 
 
We have a close link with St Augustine's Church, West Monkton.
 
 
Rev Marry Styles is the vicar at St Augustine's who is heavily involved in the life of the school. She leads worship regularly and takes part in many other in school activities routinely.
 
Paul Elliston is our Pioneer Worker for the church and he also spends a great deal of time supporting children at school. He leads workshops, lunch time clubs, and supports individuals through the TLG project.
 
They are both well known and loved by the children and their families.

Children visit church regularly to lead special services which are attended by other pupils, families and members of the community. Children also visit the church to learn more about the church as a special building and place of worship.
 

Community Links

We pride ourselves in maintaining a positive reputation within our local area and this is largely due to our involvement within our community. We are proud of our reputation which means that we are consistently oversubscribed.

Our school lies in the heart of our community, at the centre of the large housing estate whose residents we serve. As well as letting out our facilities to the church and other local groups for community events, we advertise our own events widely and welcome members of the community along to our summer fete and Christmas celebrations.

 
 
 Fundraising-
 
As a school we actively raise funds throughout each year for those who are less fortunate. This includes national charities such as Children in Need and Red Nose Day as well as charities selected by the children. Children are given the opportunity regularly to fund raise for charities close to their hearts which supports them in demonstrating our Christian values and standing up for those who need support. 
 
So far this year (September 2019) 
                        we have raised £403.63  for World Mental Health Day.
                                         £2200.39  for the NSPCC
 
As well as clothes for the Womens' Refugee.
 
We are currently   supporting Operation Christmas Child 'Watch this Space'.
