Pedmore CofE Primary School
The church works closely with Pedmore Primary School and has developed very successful links. Key stage 2 children and parents enjoy worship at St Peter’s every month. The school children celebrate special festivals, such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter in the Church. At the end of the year our Year 6 children enjoy a celebratory leavers’ service at St Peter’s before moving on to their High Schools.
Children learn in many ways, for example through role playing Christian celebrations such as Christening and weddings. Church members help teach the children about the special places and artefacts used in worship in the Church. They also come into school to lead worship and support R.E.
Drama groups and choir sometimes join in family services at Church and members of the church congregation join ‘Open the Book’ assemblies held each week, led by Beth Parry, St Peter’s Church and Families worker.
