St Helen's Church and Christ the Consoler

We have close links with the parish of Skelton cum Newby, St. Helen’s Church in Skelton. The Vicar takes collective worship regularly and we use the local church for this and also for educational activities. The children hold a daily collective worship, which is of a Christian character.

Our SIAMS inspection in July 2016 judged us to be an “outstanding”church school and the Inspector recognised how the Christian distinctiveness of our school is a strong foundation for each child’s successful learning journey.

We host a number of school events at Christ the Consoler with kind permission from The Churches Conservation Trust, the national charity protecting historic churches at risk, who care for and maintain the church. Working in partnership with the Heritage Learning Officer we regularly use their resources and join in activities. The children have produced a visitors’ guide to the church and are wonderful ambassadors for this historic local landmark.
