‘If we love one another God dwelleth in us and his love is perfected in us' 1 John 4:12
As a school, we believe that Christian Values help to shape and support our children to fulfil their full potential and empower them to make informed choices, flourish socially and prepare them for becoming a confident, respectful and fulfilled member of society. We believe that our Christian Values highlight how Christ is our role model and that no matter what we go through, we will always have peace, respect and friendship.
Darrington CE Primary School is a Church of England school within the Diocese of Leeds. We have strong links with our Parish Church, St Luke and All Saints, and worship here at different times of the year. Reverend Adrian Judd leads a weekly whole school worship.
Our Church community supports our school in a number of ways through representatives holding the roles of Foundation Governors on our Governing Body. Mrs Fletcher is heavily involved in school life and leads the DCWC (Darrington Collective Worship Committee) throughout the year as well.
We also work in partnership with the Diocese of Leeds and with other Pontefract Church Schools to continually improve and grow as Church Schools.
Belonging To Our Church Community
St Luke and All Saints Church Darrington
At Darrington CE Primary we regularly visit St Luke and All Saints Church, Darrington, which is positioned next to the school. We hold many celebrations throughout the year in church such as our Christmas Carol Concert, Harvest and Easter service. We also use the Church when teaching elements of Christianity in RE, for instance about Baptism and Holy buildings.
