Collective Worship

We believe that in our school we have collective worships that is inclusive, invitational and inspiring the school community. We offer the opportunity to all pupils and adults to grow spiritually through experiences of prayer, stillness, worship and reflection. Worship enables all pupils and adults to appreciate that Christians worship in different ways, or example using music, silence, story, prayer, reflection, the varied liturgical and other traditions of Anglican/Methodist worship, festivals and, where appropriate, the Eucharist. We believe this helps our school community understand how faith is in the world today. Our collective worships include British value themes as well as rights Respecting School. Each day collective worship is held in the hall where all pupils and staff share the experience together. Every Monday we hold a Celebration worship as well as a Class Collective Worship. Tuesdays, Canon Rev. Janet takes Collective worship. Each teacher leads a worship on Wednesdays and Thursdays followed by Pupil Voice worship on Fridays. Pupil voice worships are lead by any child who wants to plan and lead a Collective worship and are centred around our theme for the week, school values or anything that happens of importance in that week. Year 6 pupils take responsibility for organising the hymns and our special call to worship. Early Years have been developing their very own special worship. This has been evolved from training that the EYFS teacher has been on as well as the pupils voice.
