St John's in the Community
We have great links with St John’s Church, Heaton Mersey. We use the church as an extra classroom as well as holding services and special assemblies there. Rev Rowles hosts some of our assemblies and supports with our RE theme days.
As a church school we encourage children to practice key Christian values of sacrifice and service. Therefore where possible we provide opportunities for the children to support the local community. St John’s have performed at musical events such as the ‘Golden Oldies’ Christmas event, the church Christmas fair and the Shaw Road Christmas Light turn on. Children have also supported local charities such as Stockport Foodbank.
Our wider community links include Manchester University where working together with students and researchers we can share good practice and enhance the children’s learning through new experiences and challenges.
