Collective Worship

Collective Worship is a daily experience. We use iShare themes that explore a theme for half a term. Children are encouraged to learn a Bible verse and to consider ways in which the Biblical principles we are learning about can be applied to our daily lives. At the end of each half-termly theme the whole school has a session in class to review what we have explored.

Each Collective Worship includes an Anglican greeting, a song and prayer. There is usually a story, a Bible verse or an explanation of part of our current theme.

Our Collective Worship policy can be found on our School Policies page.
