Life as a Church School

Vicarage Park is a Church of England Primary school. It is designated as a VC or Voluntary Controlled CE school. This means that it is a Local Authority Maintained School and receives no funding from the church, but it has foundation governors from the Anglican church community as part of its Governing Board.

As a Church School, Vicarage Park enjoys good links with the local community church - Kendal Parish Church. Rev Rob (Rob Saner-Haigh) leads worship in the school as well as leading the school in worship when they visit the church.

As well as Rob, Ashley, Libby and Sarah all visit regularly to join in whole school Collective Worship or class learning. Libby also takes a group of Year 6 pupils to join in Messy Vintage at a local care home every month. Through this, pupils gain a deepr understanding of the Christian faith in action.
