Collective Worship

We worship together every day either as a school in the school or in our class groups.  On a Friday, we celebrate the achievements of the children and within this assembly we sing our school song Shine which links to our vision of ‘Let your light shine’ from the biblical book of Matthew chapter 5 verse 16.

Each half term we explore a Christian value. We learn about this value through stories and reflections where we think about how we can demonstrate the value in our everyday lives.

We have a ‘Shining Group’ that consists of children from Key Stage 2. These children plan and lead some of our collective worship and they help within the special services we hold during the year – Harvest, Christmas and Easter.

A minister from our local church comes into school once a week to lead Collective Worship.

We celebrate Harvest, Christmas and Easter with services held in the church for the whole school community.
