Whittle-le-Woods CofE Primary School

St John's Church

St John’s, Whittle-le-Woods

As a church school, our links with our church are very important to us.  Many of our families attend this and other churches and we also have families of other faiths within the school: Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist.

Our Church Links

Our school comes under the Parish of St. John the Evangelist which is situated just next door to our school. This allows our pupils to easily take part in various services throughout the year, including a Harvest Festival service, Education Sunday Service, Easter Service and a Carols by Candlelight Service at Christmas. Reverend Philip Venables and other members of the lay clergy visit the school to lead worship for the whole school each Wednesday morning and often visit the school to enhance our learning in a range of topics.

‘I enjoy Philip’s worship because we get to act.’ Y5 pupil

We admit pupils from a number of different churches from surrounding areas as our admission criteria do not specify any one church. We also admit and welcome pupils from a variety of faith and non-faith backgrounds into our school family.
