Collective Worship

Worship in our school...

Worship is invitational.  Children in the worship committee each take a piece of the school jigsaw to worship to represent the coming together of all. They welcome classes and lead them to the hall where the threshold moment is highlighted as special with welcomers on each door. This marks the start of worship.


Worship is inclusive and our whole school community attend daily.  


Worship is inspirational. Time is given to think and reflect on personal beliefs.  It encourages our school community to recognise that there is a spiritual dimension to their lives.  Pupils are engaged through drama, stories, videos and song.  Christian teachings are presented as guidance and a means of learning how to deal with life. 


The worship committee regularly lead worship and are enthusiastic about their responsibilities. They take their role very seriously. Through recent pupil voice, they expressed that 'They would like worship to take place at least twice a day as they love it and value the time to reflect and think.'

Visitors are welcomed to lead worship in school including Reverend Stephanie from St. John's Church.  An ex pupil recently led worship on Eid and how this is celebrated, which had a positive impact on pupil and staff in school. She linked her experiences as a Muslim to the Christian faith.
