Work in Schools
We have three Church of England schools within our parish, one secondary and two primary. St Matthew’s Bloxam and St Oswald’s CofE Academy, the primary schools, have a foundation relationship with us and members of our church serve on their governing bodies. We also maintain a good relationship with the Harris Academy, our local secondary school.
In our primary schools we take regular assemblies and lessons, and there are frequent outside of the classroom learning experiences that happen at St Matthew and St Oswald’s Church. Seeing the flourishing of children’s lives through the flourishing of these schools is an important part of our local mission.
