St Michael’s Church

The school has strong links with the Church. The vicar visits the school each week to lead worship for the children. The school goes to church throughout the year for Harvest, Christmas and Easter services.

First Steps Playgroup

Close links have been formed with the playgroup to support transition which begins in January prior to the children starting school. The young children are brought to school for PE lessons on Tuesday morning, before starting their visits to their new classroom in June. First steps also run a before and after school club bringing the children to school and collecting them at the end of the school day.  If you would like any information on this service please contact First Steps direct at 01889 591035
