Collective Worship

Every half term, we consider a different Christian value as the focus for our collective worship. There are 18 values in total. On Friday 1st February 2019, we had a Values for Life day. During the day, each of our 18 classes spent time considering one of the 18 values. They all produced a piece of art work for the school hall to display their value. 

The document below tells you about our Values for Life day and each of the values that we considered. 

Every day, all children have a daily act of collective worship (sometimes called an assembly).

The table below shows what usually happens each day of the week.

Hi, I'm John. I love to read the Bible and tell stories about Jesus. You will find me in the reflection area by the main office. Have you written a prayer? Do you have something you would like us to pray for? Write it on a piece of paper and place it in my rucksack. We could use it in Collective Worship. I look forward to seeing your happy faces walk past me! John
