Collective Worship

Collective worship is part of the whole school curriculum which is intended to promote the 'Spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and of society' and prepare pupils 'for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life'. (1988 ERA)


We hold daily acts of worship in our school. It is led by staff, clergy, visitors and by the pupils. We conduct worship in a dignified and respectful way. Children see worship time as a period of calm reflection. We regard it as a special time and expect children to behave in an appropriate way.


We plan our worship for the school year as part of a series of themes or values; each value is a focus for a half term. Our worship reflects and celebrates the talents, achievements and learning of the children.


This year's values are;

Autumn 1 - Trust

Autumn 2 - Humility

Spring 1 - Truthfulness

Spring 2 - Perseverance

Summer 1- Forgiveness

Summer 2 - Responsibility


The Education Reform Act requires all pupils to take part in a daily act of worship which should be mainly of a Christian nature, but non-denominational parents have a legal right to withdraw their children from these assemblies.

'Celebration' assemblies are held each Friday to recognise pupils' achievements and to award certificates.

Please see our Home School Values pack for more information about the values we will be exploring.
