Worship

In our school, the daily Act of Collective Worship is an important part of the school day, when the whole school joins together for a period of prayer and reflection. Children are given the opportunity to plan and deliver some parts of the collective worship. Although our emphasis is on Christianity, we learn about, and from, other world religions.

 

Our collective worship sessions are also sometimes linked to our PSHE themes. We stress the similarities between religions and the importance of accepting and respecting other’s differences.
