Our Parish

Here at St Chad's RC Primary School we have a fantastic connection with St Chad's Church. We enjoy celebrating events in the Christian calendar and consider it important to worship as a whole school. Not only do we visit and celebrate at Church but also at school! Father Chris and Brother Gerard make regular visits to us both for masses and to visit each class.

Year 3 have a particular connection with St Chad's as they will be making their Holy Communion and have been making monthly visits to attend several mass'. Brother Gerard has been visiting Year 3 and helping then to understand their sacraments and teach them the important formalities of attending a mass.
