Church Links

The local church is St John the Baptist in Staveley and as a school we visit the church for Harvest, Christingle, Easter and the Leaver's Service each year. 


 St John the Baptist Church

The School has a close relationship with St John the Baptist Church in Staveley and regularly welcomes Father Stephen Jones and Father Adrian Arnold into school.  Both Father Stephen and Father Adrian educate and entertain the children when they deliver Collective Worship.

Fathers Adrian and Stephen lead Mass in school each term, and classes help with the service.

Woodthorpe supports children that want to attend Church on a Sunday each half term. These dates are circulated via the school newsletter.

The children take part in Sunday School activities, join in with the service, and some children take Communion.

The Crackpot Company

The Crackpot team come into school regularly and deliver fun and interactive assemblies that promote Christianity and teach children about stories and events in the Bible.  The children love to join in with the songs and actions and really enjoy the show that the Crackpot actors put on.
