Worship

Autumn Term 2020-2021 Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, daily worships will be conducted in classrooms. There will still be a weekly worship delivered by the Headteacher, Mrs Dymond. These will be streamed via video link. 

 

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.

We also open up Worship to parents and the wider community. Each class invites parents to join in the worship which their child is leading each term. We also share in a community worship each Thursday in which parents are also invited. As a school we also participate in Remembrance Day Service, Mother’s Day and other events throughout the year.

Worship Teams
Each half term, new children are selected to be part of the Class Worship Team. This rotates so that all children get to have a go at being part of a Worship Team. As a member of Class Worship Team, children have the opportunity to be awarded a Rainbow Certificate for their contrinbution towards worships. In order to obtain their certificate children must fulfill the different responsibilities for their year group. Below is a document showing what each Year Group's Class Worship Teams are expected to be able to do along with the certificates they will be awarded.
