A Church of England School
As a Church School we have a Christian ethos and strong links with St Lawrence Church in Towcester.
We regularly attend Church for key Christain festivals and to celebrate both the beginning and end of the school year.
Reverend Ben leads our services most of the time.
Children from Key Stage 2 classes support a Sunday Service in the Church once a month. The children take on key roles such as readings, welcoming, seating, holding the collection plate among others. They support the congregation with singing some of the songs we sing in school too. The children enjoy and learn much from the experience and are always congratulated for their ability to conduct themselves appropriately and represent the School in such a positive manner.
Our school collective worship explores our values and we sing songs with lyrics that make us think about our values, our world or God.
We regularly have visitors who tell Bible stories through painting or pictures. Other assemblies are taken by teachers and visitors from the local community discussing values or teaching/sharing with the children about an aspect of life to open up their world and experience.
We light a candle and a prayer is read by one of the children from the school book of prayers written by the pupils within the school. Each week, one of our class's choose the songs or hymns we will sing that week.
We have a time for reflection or prayer every day in assembly and before lunch.
Some of our pupils have made short films telling you about our 'Church of England School'

We regularly have visitors to our assemblies. CSALT visit us regularly and tell the children stories from the Bible using words and pictures. The children enjoy seeing the picture change and develop.
Anna Bayman visits us every term and tells us a Bible story through her painting. We display her painting in school to remind us of the message we have learnt.
We have visitors from other faiths too. We learnt about the Jewish Festival, Hannukah.
