Collective Worship

We strongly believe that Collective Worship establishes a sense of school community and is a central part of our celebrations, reflections and establishment of values. Throughout the week there are times when the whole school comes together, or in key stages or as classes. We also seek to create opportunities each term for wider acts of Collective Worship when parents are also invited to join us.

Collective Worship is a legal requirement in schools and should take place daily. Following the legislation of the 1988 Education Act it ‘shall be wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character’. Each week a member of one of the local churches comes to lead our whole school assembly. Where appropriate we seek to involve the pupils in leading acts of worship too.

If parents would like to withdraw their child from Collective Worship then they need to contact the Headteacher. Parents can view the Collective Worship overview for each half term here so that they may make an informed decision (although please be aware that minor changes are always possible). The weekly themes are also shared on the Jottings on a Friday.

Please look at our Collective Worship policy which can be found under the Statutory Information tab and our leaflet below.
