Collective Worship & Prayer
We have collective worship five times a week. In our diverse school, we ensure that all children can participate during this period of peace and refection. All children are invited to pray or contemplate in their unique way.
The children and staff have an opportunity to contribute personal prayers from home. These are shared in assembly and displayed on our prayer trees thereafter.
In assemblies children focus on the core shared values which underpin our Christian ethos. Assemblies follow the Christian calendar exploring main events and themes throughout the year. Assembly themes also incorporate national and international events which encourage the children to develop a broader understanding of the world and deepen their sense of a shared responsibility.
We try to give our children many opportunities to demonstrate our core values and affirm their commitment by celebrating their successes in our Achievement Assemblies and in our classrooms. We regularly organise annual whole-school fundraising events and activities to support specific charities and we ensure that we respond to local or national needs as they arise.
"Collective Worship is central to the life of the school and makes an outstanding contribution to the school’s Christian distinctiveness and ethos which children, staff, governors and parents agree. Children enjoy the wide range of opportunities for collective worship and prayer. Children commented enthusiastically ‘we pray every day!"SIAMS REPORT 2013
