As a Church of England School, collective worship is carried out on a daily basis. It is mostly Christian in content and encourages worship of God. Collective worship allows time for guidance, positive thought and development on spiritual, moral, social and emotional issues. It usually allows an opportunity for quiet reflection an exploration of self.
Daily worship may be led by staff, children or visitors to the school. These worship times have a theme and may include stories, songs or hymns, prayers plus a time of reflection. We follow the Christian calendar and celebrate special days and festivals throughout the year. Parents and the community are warmly invited to share weekly celebrations as well as these special services.
Parents have the right to withdraw their child from Collective Worship if their own religious beliefs make this necessary. If you wish to withdraw your child please contact the Headteacher.
We actively encourage all children to take part in worship. All classes visit a local church at least once a term and we encourage visits at least once a school year to places of worship in the wider community. During the church year, each class is responsible for leading an assembly and we welcome parents to share with us.
In school, there is much to thank God for, much to praise, much to hope and aspire to. We celebrate wisdom, hope, community and dignity.
