In accordance with DfE legislation, all schools must hold a daily act of collective worship that must be ‘wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character. ‘ The majority of collective worship across the term should have a Christian character, but not every act of worship must.
Each Monday, we hold an act of Collective Worship which takes place in the ‘old hall’ (KS1) or the sports hall (KS2). Friday’s collective worship is different. We celebrate achievements (academic and non), as well as award our Headteacher’s Award, a ‘Writer of the Week’ award and our special ‘Pathway’ awards. House Point totals are also revealed in this special time.
As well as teaching about the Christian calendar, we also celebrate other faiths and cultures at various points throughout the year. We embed our school values into our acts of worship, as well as teaching British Values. We are really proud of our acts of worship. Our staff love to lead them and our children love to learn from them.
A particular highlight are our Class Worship times. During these times, we catch a glimpse of the amazing learning that is taking place right across school. The children share their work proudly, while the rest of school celebrate their achievements.
On Mondays and Fridays, collective worships are led by members of the school’s senior leadership team, or occasionally by our Heads of Year or other staff members.
