Church & Community

The Village Hall and its fabulous new floor!

The school is situated right at the heart of Naburn village, and we really value our connections with the local church, the village and the wider community.  We are part of a cluster of schools in the south of York and work closely with the other schools within this partnership.

The Village Hall is a fabulous resource for the school and the village as a whole.  We regularly use this space for PE lessons and, of course, our fantastic drama and musical performances. We also use the field behind the hall for outdoor PE, for sports clubs after school and for Sports Day.

Our Christian Ethos is at the heart of all we do at Naburn Church of England Prinmary School. We value our links with St Matthew’s Church, which is just across the road from school. We visit the church for services, such as Harvest and Christingle, and to find out more about the building and its uses, and ‘Open the Book’ regularly come to school to lead Collective Worship.

We are also fully involved in village life, both in Naburn and Stillingfleet. For example, we worked with the local community to celebrate the school’s 150th anniversary. Click here to see more about this fantastic day!

Comments written by the children on visiting Stillingfleet

The whole school visited Stillingfleet to learn about its history and the 250th anniversary of Methodism in the village. Members of the community told the children all about how farming has changed over the years, all about the old school and all about life in the village, including when evacuees arrived in the second world war.

It was great to hear these experiences first hand and the children loved hearing the stories.

During the year we also participate in other church and community events, such as Harvest Festival and Carols around the Christmas Tree.

We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came and took part in our big ‘Tidy Day’ – the playground looks amazing!
