St Michael's Church
As a school, we have always had a fantastic relationship with Stanground Churches, the Reverends and Community. We have always been very supportive of each other since the day we opened in September 2012.
We have a wonderful relationship with Reverends Andrew and Carol who visit our school weekly to join us for Clergy Collective Worship. The children are so happy to see them in our school and feel confident to talk to them about a variety of different topics.
The Reverends also join us weekly in the classroom to support the children during their RE lessons. This has added great value to the lessons.
As a school, we also visit St Michael's Church through our RE curriculum and at special events during the year, including Remembrance, Christmas and Easter.
The Reverends support us during school visits and trips including taking Year 3 children to Peterborough Cathedral.
In 2021, the Year 6 were invited to host the Leavers Ceremony in St John's Church and this made the event even more special.
We also have a special relationship with Kingsgate Church who help us to run the Explore Club with the Year 6 children, exploring how the Chronicles of Narnia help Christians to understand God and Jesus. They also help to support the school with the Drama Performances, helping us with equipment and outfits for the actors/actresses. Kingsgate have also helped us to present fun Collective Worships however due to COVID-19 this has been difficult in 2020-21.
In addition to this, we also have a special relationship with Peterborough CROPS team. These wonderful people help us in making Collective Worship lively through role play, drama and songs. They help us teach the 'Walk through the Bible' programme to Years 5 and 6. Furthermore, Mrs Jessup will come into school to help lead Enrichment Lessons with different classes, examining big questions like 'Who Made God?'
