Lyne & Longcross is a church-aided school. The children are taught in the values of the Christian faith and these are expressed in the way that we relate to each other and do things in the school.
Worship has an important place in the life of the school, and once a week on a Thursday the children have assembly in the church. The church is a valued learning resource for many subject areas with its furnishings, stained glass windows and churchyard. Special school services are held in church at Easter, and the end of the summer term. Parents are encouraged to join these services. On the first Sunday of each month there is an All Age Worship service at the church at 10am. On occasions there are special family services with children taking key roles and presenting songs/dramas organised by the school.
The parishioners of Lyne and Longcross pray for the school regularly. They appreciate the involvement of the school in the church. They also provide gifts for school leavers.
The school buildings belong to the Church and the governors are responsible for the exterior maintenance of them. Some financial help is available for this but the Governors have to find 10% of the cost, and the PTFA can help to raise funds for this.
The Education Department of the Diocese of Guildford provide professional advice and training.
