Collective Worship

We have a daily act of worship which takes place in a classroom or in the Church. This worship plays a key role in our daily lives and has a clear impact upon the spirituality of all people at our school. It is a time to come together in order to give thanks and praise, reflect and, celebrate and speak to God. A weekly rota is produced each half-term to show who is leading worship and the foci which reflect the Christian value, a MAT theme, Bible stories and teaching (particularly from Proverbs).
The June 2015 Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist schools (SIAMS) judged Collective Worship to be outstanding and states it, "Great value is placed on worship by the school in a way that is highly appropriate to its foundation, its catchment area and its setting very close to the parish church and the Methodist chapel."
On Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday  we have collective worship in the morning, as a time for quiet reflection together as a school or class. On a Thursday we have hymn practice and on a Friday our Collective Worship takes place in the local Church.  Members of the community, parents/carers, sometimes join us and an Open the Book Team delivers a Bible story. Celebration of children’s achievements also take place during this worship.
