Our Local Church - Christ Church, Coalville
As a Church of England school, we are proud of our history and tradition within the local community and especially our links to the Parish Church of Christ Church with whom we share a close relationship. Christ Church and the Church community enriches the religious character of our school.
Rev. Gill Pinnington is the vice chair of our school's governing body and plays an important part in ensuring the school's vision, Christian ethos and Christian values are embedded into daily school life.

Gill and members of the Christ Church community have played an active part in enriching our collective worships. Even though we haven't been able to have visitors in school, we have been lucky enough to have Gill join us in our Zoom collective worships and have been provided with videos to use.
Enhancing Our Learning
Our link with Christ Church has enabled us to extend the children's learning and engage them in the wider Christian community. Recently we were supported in learning about Pentecost and the children designed a Pentecost banner which is now being displayed in the church. Over the past academic year the church has provided support with events like Advent, Christmas and Easter, Rev. Gill has performed a baptism for our Meerkats Class and the Tigers Class have performed Christmas carols over Zoom to the local community. We also celebrated the Christ Church stained-glass windows being made into stamps, by designing our stamps.

Christ Church have shown immense kindness and generosity in agreeing to fund the purchase of important resources for our children's learning. With this funding, we are going to purchase items to make our classroom worship areas more interactive, high-quality and engaging resources from different religions to enhance our RE teaching, and school-wide resources to enhance our collective worships. Thank you Rev. Gill and the whole Christ Church community.
We can't wait until we are able to regularly visit the church once more, for our key religious festivals and to enhance the children's learning opportunities.
