Our Local Church – Cheddleton St. Edward the Confessor

Our school has developed close links with our local church – Cheddleton St. Edward the Confessor.

The children plan and deliver services at our church, including – Harvest Festival, Remembrance, Christmas, Easter and during the Leaver’s Service in July. We also visit the church on other occasions. E.g. When we learn about prayer, marriage or baptism in RE; When we learn about William Morris in Art; When we learn about the history of Cheddleton and When we learn about WW2.

The interim minister Reverend Diane is a regular visitor at our school and our children receive a great deal of support from her.  She hears readers, supports learning (in RE and with individuals) and delivers visitor worships on a regular basis. Reverend Diane is also a member of our Christian Council.

Our school also works in close partnership with the Lichfield Diocesan Board of Education to continue to grow, evolve and improve as an academy.  Our Christian Distinctiveness Advisor is Alex Wolvers.

We are passionate about Growing Faith within our school and village community (including its churches).  We know that our children are the adults of the future and by doing this we are instilling a sense of belonging and the message that community spirit has the church at its heart.
