What does it mean to be a church school?

St Mary’s is a church school. We have established links with the three parishes of Shawbury, Moreton Corbet and Stanton. Our status is “voluntary controlled” which means that we are “controlled” by the Local Authority (Shropshire) as well as having a link with the parish.

Rev Rich Cresswell leads weekly worship and we celebrate termly whole community events at St Mary’s Church.

We teach half-termly values in collective worship. Our daily worship times give all children some experience of stillness as well as time to think, talk and celebrate achievements.
