God wants me to be the best me I can be when I come to 



‘The Big Listen’


John Arnold, Bishop of Salford, said: "As we live in a fast-changing world, we must be prepared

to question our priorities and our aspirations.


We are starting on out journey with our Bishop John and the Diocesan Synod.

In calling the Synod, Bishop John reflected on the considerable changes our Church has witnessed over recent years, remarking that the time has come to envisage a new future for the Church in our diocese. A challenge as to what we need to be now in a changing world. What our people expect of us, and how might we rethink things.


It is a journey by which we, clergy and laity, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, can together set out the future direction and priorities of the life and mission of our Diocese.


We journey together in prayer; 


Loving Father,

be with us as we seek new ways of being your people in our Diocese.

May each new day bring us closer to your son Jesus, as we follow his teaching and

become disciples of love.

As we continue our Synodal journey, draw us closer to each other.

May the truth of your Spirit enlighten us.

Open our hearts, as we listen to each other and reach out in love to your people.

Stay with us, Lord, on our journey.




We live out our Catholic values and practice the Christian faith through the 5 W's.


Our School Gospel Values are:


  • Love
  • Forgiveness
  • Truth
  • Hope
  • Friendship
  • Respect 

We live in our Faith together 



Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony


Colossians 3:14


Our Prayer Leaders and other leaders in our school work amazingly hard every week to create a wonderful worship. 


Key Stage Worship

Every Wednesday EYFS and Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 come together to worship. This is planned by Miss Taylor, Miss Colak, Miss Perkins and the Prayer Leaders. 


We have a set focus for each worship and this links to Mrs Scott's whole school Monday worship. 




God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.

John 4:24  

Big Questions


We follow the Big Questions that link to our RE Programme "Come and See." As well as this we add our own as a school. 


This term some of our questions are;


How can Saints inspire us today ?


Why do we remember ?


How can we keep ourselves safe ?


How do we show that we accept Jesus as our king ?


John Burland


As part of our worship we use John Burland's music. John Burland lives in Australia but we were very lucky to have a concert led by him through Zoom. John Burland is well known for his uplifting and meaningful songs which the children participated in vocally and physically. John Burland performed for the children and staff. 


John visited our school a few years ago and led a concert for children, staff and parents. Hopefully he will visit us again soon for another live concert. Here are some pictures from the day.
