Our church, our community
We are linked to St Giles is the church at the centre of Holme village which is a stone’s throw from our front door! Our vicar is the Reverand Jon Randall and our Lay Preacher is Barbara Lawes.
The school has a long and wonderful history with the church and we work closely together during the year on a variety of events across the Christian calendar. In accordance with the principles of the Church of England, our school promotes Christian values such as honesty, forgiveness and truth through all that we do. These values together with our ethos of working hard, inclusiveness, equal opportunities and striving for your goals, creating an environment in which each child and adult is valued for their contribution in our school community.
The St Giles team also lead Explorers and Explorers Plus bible groups in school each week for those that want to attend. Each week the children learn about different bible stories or Christian events. They also work together to lead an act of collective workship for the whole school each term.
As a church school, our relationship with St Giles is hugely important as we jointly work together to develop and nurture Christian values amongst the children and provide a truly distinctive church ethos.
