Our church is St John the Baptist, Tunstall. We have a close relationship with the church which includes organising and participating in school services for Harvest, Christmas and Lent.
Our new entrants and their families share a welcome service at the beginning of the year and our Year 6 pupils and their families have a leavers’ service at the end of the summer term. Reverend Alan Pinnegar (or one of the parish clergy) comes into school every Tuesday morning to take our whole school assembly.
In addition to this, most of our classes use the church at some point during the year to deliver part of their Religious Education curriculum, for example, when studying Baptism. Often members of the church congregation support these occasions.
Outside school, many of our pupils have links to the church and attend Sunday School or the Church Club that runs after school on the third Tuesday of each month.
