Our Faith Team is a democratically elected group of children from Year 1 – Year 6, who are passionate in representing/supporting their peers and positively impacting Collective Worship, Church Services, Pop-Up Prayer Spaces and the Religious Education Curriculum. As well as being Leaders in Worship and Prayer. Each year group from Year 1 to Year 6 has one Faith Team Representative.
Our Faith Team benefits the whole school as it gives opportunities for the members to communicate their feelings and opinions and enables the children to take a lead in their community.
