Headteacher Update 


Today, Chris our Vicar, Bishop Tony, our governors, and all of our school community celebrated the official federation of St. Stephen’s Tockholes and The Redeemer C.E. Primary Schools. It was a wonderful service of prayer, praise and beautiful singing. I hope that we all felt truly blessed! The vocation of teaching and nurturing children is in equal measure - a huge privilege and a huge responsibility. Personally, I feel an enormous sense of gratitude and joy, to be working with, and surrounded by, such a ‘good to the core’ team. This was my prayer at the service today. It is also my 'ongoing' prayer.

Dear Lord,
St. Paul compares the church to the Body of Christ – as we celebrate the official federation of our church schools of St. Stephen’s Tockholes and The Redeemer Blackburn, we remember that we are each a part of this body, and we say thank you. We thank God for the gifts given to and freely shared by: the Governors, the parents and friends, the wider community, the teaching team and the pupils. We ask God that by supporting, encouraging and working together, we are always guided by Jesus, who is the head of the church, so that our schools may be united, and be built on the life-giving love of Jesus.

Finally, my thanks to you all.
To Bishop Tony – thank you so much for taking time out of your very busy schedule and for leading our celebration with us all today. It was a JOY. Thank you.
To the parents, carers, family members and friends, who offer so much support to school on a daily basis. Who work tirelessly with us here at school to help ensure our children have the best education possible. Thank you
To the Governors, for their strategic guidance and support in the running of our two wonderful schools. It’s astounding the amount of time that Governors volunteer to help run both establishments, all freely, no pay. Thank you
To all our staff. Literally the very best staff in any school, anywhere! You little people are so lucky to have such supportive, hardworking, and dedicated adults working with you each and every day. Thank you.
Finally, to our pupils. Thank you for being you. You make us smile on a daily basis by being so unique and so amazing! Keep smiling and keep being you. Every one of you matters. Every one of you has a role to play. Every one of you makes a difference because you are our future. Thank you.

Have a great weekend, see you all Monday.
God bless
