Christingle Service

The whole school went to St Faith's Church in Kilsby for the Christingle service this morning.  Rev Doug led the service, we sang carols, Jacob Mills played 'Ding Dong Merrily on High' on the piano and the violinists and cellists played 'Away in a Manger' whilst the Christingle candles were lit and as the children stood in a circle around the church.   After the service parents were invited back to school for refreshments.

Diocesan Report

Our recent Diocesan inspection report has given us a 'good' report with  'outstanding!' elements.  The outstanding elements were in our personal and spiritual development:

"The centrality of the very strong shared Christian ethos that permeates the whole school is evident from all aspects of school life.  Distinct Christian values underpin the life and work of this school, and have a major impact on the outstanding personal and spiritual development of the pupils.  As a result their involvement in the choice of Christian values pupils readily articulate their positive impact on their lives."

"High levels of expectation, care and respect is evident and leads to high attendance, no exclusions and happy children, who love to come to school and enjoy learning."

Councillor Lomax

Councillor Lomax  came into school on Friday 12th December to present prizes to the winners of the calendar competition for her ward. Many thanks to her for giving us her valuable time, and many congratulations to the winners!
