Light of the World! - A beautiful evening together celebrating the birth of Jesus.

This afternoon (13th December), we all came together to celebrate the meaning of Christmas over a delicious lunch! The Criftins annual tradition of singing 'The 12 Days of Christmas' was, as ever, brilliantly done!!

Harvest Charity Lunch 2018


Thank you to all who joined us for our charity lunch - soup, bread, cheese, tea, coffee and cake galore. 


We raised £200 for the local food bank and many people also brought food to donate. Thank you all for doing you but to make a difference. 


The New Testament says: 

 Then he said to his disciples, 'The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few' (Matthew 9:37).


We are glad to say that the children are always learning that we all have to do our part to make a difference in the world. 


The children had had a wonderful time baking bread, cakes, entertaining guests and singing for you all. 






We are delighted that the Mothers' Union have decided to support our school this year in equipping us with resources to promote 'Faith in Action'. I visited Welshampton Church to meet the local group today at their  annual service with two of our wonderful Year 5 pupils. 


We enjoyed learning about the history of the Mothers' Union and the impact of the organisation world wide. We also enjoyed the after service refreshments, meeting some new faces and spending time with some members of the Criftins Community. They are certainly making a difference.

We received a letter of thanks from Bishop Michael after his visit to school. It was great to have the Bishop of Lichfield visit the school in November. It gave the children a chance to see that people care about them from other parts of the Diocese. Thank you Bishop Michael.
