Cross of Nails

The Cross of Nails from Coventry Cathedral came into school as part of the Diocesan Centenary celebrations. A welcoming committee of children, staff and our Chair of Governors, Mr. Hawke, received the Cross of Nails from the Head teacher and children from Bishops Tachbrook School. Through assembly time and class activities, children across the school explored the themes of Peace and Reconciliation. Before the Cross of Nails was taken to St. Margaret’s church to be shared with the church community in a family service led by Rev. Suffern, a group of children who make up our the Worship Group took the cross to Briar Hill and explained to the infant children about our school’s link to the Cross of Nails community. With the Cross of Nails back in school after the bank holiday, Rev. Suffern led school worship before a ‘Giving Party’ of staff and children from St. Margaret’s transported the cross past St. Margaret’s Church and across the fields to Radford Semele Primary School from where the cross has continued its pilgrimage around all of the C of E schools in the area.
