Collective Worship

Collective worship is central to the life of our school. Worship offers the children and others in our school an opportunity to reflect on values and issues in the context of our Christian ethos.

The school holds daily worship every morning. Steve, the curate, takes an assembly once a week. Visiting speakers, church leaders and other representatives from other local churches are also invited to lead collective worship during the year on a regular basis. The festivals of Harvest, Christmas and Easter are celebrated in the Parish church; St Thomas of Canterbury. Termly themes are used as a focus for acts of worship. During the year each class has the opportunity to present a class assembly, to celebrate and share they have been doing. Parents and friends are invited to attend.

Parents have a legal right to withdraw their child from collective worship and where this is requested an alternative arrangement would be made for their supervision.
