Collective worship is an opportunity to learn, worship and celebrate together.
Our collective worship is structured around the Values for Life programme. Each half term we focus on a different Christian value and learn how we can live our lives according to these values. Recent themes have included Creativity, Hope, Compassion and Truthfulness. We develop our understanding of our Values by learning from examples in the Bible, listening to stories, finding out how other people live these values and participating in drama. We welcome visitors who tell us about their work, interests or special events. Class and Key Stage assemblies provide opportunities to explore the current focus Value in different ways.
In our weekly Worship through Song, we learn new songs, celebrate our values through songs and enjoy singing songs we know well. Our Friday Spotlight Assembly is a celebration of our hard work and an opportunity to receive certificates, reward good attendance and find out how well our House teams are doing. We are visited by our local Open the Book team who use drama to tell Bible stories, involving children in the action.
Children are encouraged to participate in Collective Worship by leading a prayer, suggesting ideas, participating in drama and taking on other responsibilities.
