St. John’s Church Trent Vale and its links with St. John’s School.
As a church congregation, we are delighted to have links with St. John’s School and to play a part in the ongoing life of the school. Schools and churches have for decades been focal points for people of particular communities and this is just such the case with ourselves.
Members of the congregation play a vital role as governors of the school and provide a very real witness to the community of the value we place upon education and supporting the pupils and staff of St. John’s school. Schools are an integral part of our communities and we want to ensure that this continues to be the case. We value and respect all faiths.
The local parish priest visits the school most weeks and meets with the head teacher Mrs. Pauline Bloor. I also join classes for particular lessons and will take services in the school and on other occasions, there are whole school services at St. John’s church.
We have to regularly review the links the church has with the school. It is very important that as a church school we continue to reflect the love of Christ and to ensure the relevance of the Christian faith is kept to the fore of pupils and staff.
