As a church school, the link we have with St Paul’s Church, Hooton, is important to our school community. Little Sutton Church of England’s original school and St Paul’s Church were both built by Christopher Naylor. Here began the long standing involvement between the two and in recent years, despite the restrictions we have faced, the bond has become much stronger.
St Paul’s is our home for our special services at Easter, Harvest, Christmas time and when it’s time for our Year 6 pupils to say goodbye to us and move on to high school. These are an opportunity for all our families to come together to celebrate with God.
Vicar Keith comes into school to lead us in collective worship and take us through the stories and lessons within the Bible.
Our school choir have supported events at church on many occasions such as opening the church summer fair and singing for the congregation at the drop-in service, which is a service specifically for those who live alone.
During the pandemic, Owl Class (Reception) recorded their hymn It was on a Starry Night, which was then played for the congregation of the two Service of Light events in December 2020. The beautiful voices brought smiles to all our faces.
Our school Principal has played an active part in church life. She was welcomed in December 2019 by being invited to attend St Paul’s Lessons and Carols service and introduced to the church family. Since then she has spoken on Education Sunday and taken part in the service of Light.
