As a church school we have very close links with St. Stephen's Church, Lindley.

Ever since the opening of the first Church Day School back in 1831, St. Stephen’s has had a very close involvement with children’s education in Lindley. Lindley CE Infant School was dedicated by the Bishop of Wakefield in 1954 and was then the first of the new Church of England Aided Schools in the Wakefield Diocese.

Diocese of Leeds Education Link Trip to Tanzania - February 2019

In February 2019 Miss Morrison as our RE coordinator, undertook a journey to the Mara region of Tanzania. 

Her visit was part of the Diocese of Leeds education links to Tanzania which have three broad aims:

  • Friendship - through visits, letters and emails.
  • Prayer - we pray for each other often by name.
  • Practical Support - in whatever way we can help.

Click this link to read the daily blog about Miss Morrisons trip to Tanzania - https://www.leeds.anglican.org/tanzania-blog.

Around 80 churches in West Yorkshire are linked to churches in Tanzania as well as school to school links. There have been many visits in both directions. Many parishes pray for their link church every Sunday. Schools exchange letters and photos and learn about  each other. Clergy training is supported and agricultural projects funded.
