Pupils in the Community
The school is a key part of the village and plays an important role in providing services to the local community, particularly for young families. There is a thriving Before and After School Club and Pre-School. Regular 'drop-in' sessions are offered by the school nurse and Family Support Worker with advice on health, behaviour etc.
The school has good relations with the local church. The vicar of the parish comes into school weekly to take assemblies and a Christingle service and Leavers’ service are also held in the Abbey. Children from across the school provide displays for the Abbey Flower Festivals and decorate Christmas trees for the Christingle. The Fenland Family Church group meet in the school hall every Sunday.
The local Heritage Centre, maintained by the Thorney Society, is a valuable resource, used regularly by the school for history topics. In addition a member of the Thorney Society visits the school as part of the Fenland Trust. The school also participated with the Peterborough Regional College in an archaeological dig organised by Cambridgeshire Archaeology.
