The Mayor of Southwark and the Bishop of Woolwich visited St Jude's Primary School last month for the official opening of a new entrance.
The Mayor of Southwark, Cllr Kath Whittam, cut a ribbon to officially open the new entrance to the school building from the playground on Gladstone Street.
Pupils, parents, staff, governors and friends of the school gathered for the ceremony on Friday 28 April.
Rt Revd Dr Karowei Dorgu, the new Bishop of Woolwich, blessed the new entrance and sprinkled it with holy water.
St Jude's School is linked to the parish of St George the Martyr and the bishop was accompanied by St George's priest-in-charge Fr Jonathan Sedgwick.
During the ceremony pupils also made a presentation to Peter Duggan, long-serving churchwarden of St George the Martyr, who is retiring from the school's governing body after two decades.
