Sadly, the village school closed in July 2022 following a statutory consultation process.

Until that point, we were pleased to be able to support its important work as it served our community’s children.

The Rector was involved with occasional RE lessons and led Collective Worship in assemblies each week.

We welcomed the school to the church building to support its Religious Education and PHSE curricula as well as for special events like the Harvest Festival and end of term services. Every year, we gave a Bible to all the Year 6 school leavers.

The school was a Church of England School which meant that the church was represented on the Governing Body. The Rector was Chair of Governors for several years, and helped design and administer the school’s website.

The PCC is considering how the church might continue to support the village’s children now the school is closed.
