British Values Worship 23/10/17

It was great to look at our British Values during our Monday Worship. We looked at the importance of being respectful and tolerant of those with other faiths as well as those who have no faith.

We also looked at the importance of respecting and tolerating those of different race, nationality, gender, age and opinion.

The children made some excellent contributions to our worship. Our country is certainly in good hands when they all grow up!

Sing Together 2017

It was an absolute privilege to take 24 of our children to King George’s Hall in Blackburn on Tuesday 21st March 2017 to take part in the annual Sing Together event that is run by the Blackburn Cathedral Outreach Team.

The children performed superbly and their enjoyment was plain to see. They sang their hearts out throughout the practice and the concert. The behaviour of our children was exemplary. They were a credit to our school and their parents.

For us as a school, this was a new adventure. We cannot underestimate the impact that such events have.  Not every child gets the opportunity to perform in front of over a thousand people in such a large venue and it is experiences such as this that last a lifetime. The children loved it and are keen to take part next year!

I would also like to thank all the staff involved and all the parents who came and supported us, you certainly gave the loudest cheer when we finished our group song!

Mr Dryland


Prayer Week

Well done to all the children who made our prayer week such a celebration of Christianity and many other faiths around the world.

All classes investigated a different continent and then set about researching the different faiths that exist there and how each faith prays.

The finale for this was our Friday Worship where each class presented their findings. Well done to all those who presented and also to the ones who put so much time and hard work into the research.

Welcome to our brand new website. That’s what it looks like isn’t it, but looks can be deceptive! It’s actually a blog site. In the coming weeks we will be training the staff as to how to ‘blog’. We will then be sharing this with all the children so that everyone can blog about what we are doing in school. It is fantastic way to connect to the whole world…………watch out for our quadblogging!
