Collective Worship is held every day in school and encourages opportunities for our pupils to listen, discuss and reflect as a class, Key Stage or as a whole school. Our worship themes are based upon our School Christian Values and encourage the understanding of what each value means to us as individuals, as a school, a community and in the wider world. Within each Value, children are introduced to a key story or parable from the bible in the old and new testaments.
Respect - The Good Samaritan
Resilience - Noah's Ark
Pride - The Creation Story
Forgiveness - The Prodigal Son
Trust - Moses and the Red Sea
Faith - Jesus Calms the Storm
Pupils have opportunities to actively partake in collective worship and they are confident in discussing the importance of our School Christian Values.
Furthermore, we have carefully linked each of our Christian Values to the five Fundamental British Values and ensure that our pupils learn how they can apply their deep-rooted knowledge of our Christian Values out in the wider world to become responsible British citizens.
