Church School Status and SIAMS
St Stephen's C.E. V.C. primary school enjoys a very good working relationship with St Stephen's church. The church is located on Bird Street and our pupils visit for enrichment activities around the Christian Faith. We enjoy visits at Easter and Christmas and members of the church visit school once a month as part of the "open the book" drama - where the relevance of Bible Stories are re-enacted in a whole school worship.
The vicar or curate lead worship on a Monday and they work with the school's the headteache to enrich acts of worship. School worship leaders meet on a regular basis to plan and deliver worship across school and in classes. The school choir also visits church for harvest each year and families are invited to church for Christingle service as well as throughout the year to church events.
Our church offers huge support to our community. A food market takes place every friday at church and Kate Traynor, church family worker, collaborates with school to deliver sport and family activities within the local area and at church.
