Collective Worship

Collective Worship
We believe that Collective Worship, the time we assemble together every day, both supports and strengthens what we aim to do in every aspect of our school life.
 
We value the special time in the school day for the space it gives our children to develop a reflective approach to life and the ability to express their thoughts and feelings.
 
Through our collective worship we aim to provide a caring and supportive environment for children to:
  • become increasingly aware of themselves as individual and groups within the school and wider community
  • grown in understanding of the feelings of others in everyday situations
  • explore the language which people use to express their feelings
  • deepen their sense of wonder about the world around them
  • respond freely to religious and/or spiritual stimuli
  • acknowledge diversity and affirm each person's life stance, whether it be religious or not
  • grow in confidence when speaking or participating in a presentation during a Collective Worship
Worship both reflects and harbours the ethos of the whole school. It encompasses all aspects of school life and all areas of the curriculum so that every pupil, and indeed staff and family members, may feel involved. In particular, congregating together only develops and strengthen the feeling of belonging to a community - an essential part of personal development and spiritual growth.
