Parish and Community Links
St Winifred’s Catholic Primary school is committed to developing strong Parish and Community links and is constantly seeking opportunities to develop these.
Children from year 1 to 6 regularly attend services in our parish church. We also have services in our school halls. Our parish priest is encouraged to visit our school as much as he can.
Each year we have harvest liturgy and the fruits of the harvest are shared between the Manna Centre, our school food bank and our local food bank.
Members of our community come in to help in classes each week.
Our children take part in local events and festivals. They sing carols in the local library each Christmas and they take part in the Hither Green Festival.
Our children also take part in an intergenerational project, where they visit a local residential home and build relationships with the residents there.
Children regularly visit places in their school locality and meet people who serve the community : police, Fire officers, shop keepers: as part of the planned curriculum.
The ‘Friends of St Winifred’s’ work hard to organise events in the school, parish, and local community.
The school is a member of a local education collaborative and the collaborative of Catholic schools.
As a school we believe that it is very important to build strong links with our parish and local community and are constantly looking for opportunities to do this.
