Collective worship is an important part of the school day.
Each term a Christian value is selected as a whole school focus and each act of collective worship is planned carefully to explore these values in more detail.
The context for collective worship is different each day, this may include; Whole school collective worship, class worship, worship around song, a worship with our parish vicar and a celebration worship that all parents and are invited along to. We celebrate a range of Christian festivals throughout the year, including Harvest, Christmas, St. Katharine’s day, Easter as well as times for reflection such as Remembrance. Our curriculum work and planned RE teaching takes account of other major festivals from different faiths. We are an inclusive community that values the faiths and beliefs of all.
We regularly use the church to support the developing spirituality of our learners an example of this would be our leavers’ service, led by the children at the end of the summer term.
Collective worship creates a space in our busy school day to be still and reflect upon the world we live in and our place within it.
