Valuing individuals, aspiring and achieving together in faith


Our Pilgrims are a voluntary group of Year 5 and Year 6 children who meet on a Tuesday lunch time from 12:30 to 12:55 with Mrs Robson. They develop resources, discuss R.E. and related issues in school and plan and take some collective worship sessions .


Their focus:


  • To develop our Christian identity in school.
  • To develop an understanding of Christianity and Christian beliefs in the wider world.
  • To develop an understanding of other faiths, cultures and customs.
  • To develop understanding, appreciation, tolerance and respect for others. 
This week Pilgrims led the Collective worship on Shrove Tuesday, to begin the season of Lent. They provided pancakes for all children to taste and enjoy.
