Our Vision - We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Phillippians 4:13
Lived out through Collective Worship
We want collective worship, to be the ‘heartbeat’ of our school vision signalling the life, energy and Christian spirit of the school.
Collective Worship in our school is a highly valued time which is a specially set apart time in the school day. The planning of our Collective Worship ensures that the school community has the opportunity to arrive for worship prepared with the right attitude, engage with their own spirituality and learn from Biblical teachings and leave feeling refreshed and inspired.
Our Collective Worship is timetabled to take place each morning, so all who worship with us can go out into the world for the rest of the day, fuelled by the love of God and teachings of Jesus and sharing that love by valuing all of God’s children.
All people (child or staff member with a Christian faith, a faith from another religion or who hold no religious beliefs) are fully embraced and valued during Collective Worship. Everyone is equal and we treat each other with dignity and respect. Our school is a place where everyone should be able to flourish in a loving and hospitable community.
Our collective worship is continually reviewed by the school's Ethos Committee and adaptations are made in the light of their consulatations with the children.
Parents can decide whether their children should take part in the daily act of Collective Worship in the school and those wishing to withdraw their children should inform the headteacher in writing.
We encourage the children to continue thinking about the values that we have been looking at outside of school. To support this, each half-term we send home leaflets about the value we are looking at, these can be seen below. We give the infant and junior children the opportunity to record their thoughts about our worhsip themes in their home worship books. They can, if they want to, bring these books into school each Thursday to share with us in collective worship.
