The Religious Foundation of our School
Billinghay Church of England Primary School is a voluntary controlled school. This means that although the school has close links with the Church of England, it is the Local Authority’s responsibility to employ the staff and maintain the building.
The religious, historic foundation of our school is recognized in the aims and values of the school.
The Lincoln Diocesan Board of Education appoints three governors to the Governing Body of the school.
Religious education is taught to all children within the school, following a scheme of work from the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education for Lincolnshire (introduced in January 2001) and updated in 2006.
The teaching is mainly Christian; one other World religion is introduced a Key Stage 1, while two other World religions are introduced at Key Stage 2. Work includes coverage of the main events in school e.g. Harvest, Christmas and Easter.
An act of Collective Worship is held every day. We are pleased to welcome parents, grandparents and friends to attend.
The Churches of the Carr Dyke.
The Benefice comprises the Parishes of Billinghay, Martin, North Kyme, South Kyme and Walcott. The vicar of the Carr Dyke Group of Churches is the Rev’d Stephen Holt who can be contacted on 01526 861746. Their website is www.cardykeparishes.org
We as a whole school attend the church for services at Harvest, Christmas, Easter and at the end of the school year. Once a year we also have Holy Communion service at church. Other visits to the church are made by different year groups for example to explore a wedding service or a baptism.
The Diocese of Lincoln’s website www.lincoln.anglican.org provides information about the ministry and mission of the Church of England in Lincolnshire.
The parish also has a Facebook page, which can be found at https://en-gb.facebook.com/CarrDyke/
