Collective Worship is an important part of our school day. We meet as a whole school four times a week, just after our lunch break; to reflect, celebrate, praise and challenge our thinking. On the fifth occasion pupils either meet in class groups or year groups depending on the week. There are more details about our school approach to Collective Worship and spirituality in our Collective Worship Policy (see Policy Section) and in the section on this site called 'Church Schools Distinctiveness'. Please take a look.
We love to celebrate our God given talents both in and out of school (check out our WOW board in school for pupils' wider achievements) and so we are delighted that our Art Technician, Miss Bridie Cheeseman is also an accomplished artist and illustrator: www.bridiecheeseman.co.uk . We have used her talents by commissioning her to produce a piece which helps pupils focus and reflect during our Collective Worship. You can see from the photos she has done an amazing job of creating a landscape based around Biblical stories as a focus for our school Collective Worship. I hope you enjoy looking at it next time you are in school.
Collective Worship Spring Term 2019
This term we have explored the ‘I am’ sayings of Jesus: I am the living water; I am the bread of life; I am the light of the world and I am the Good Shepherd. We have reflected on: how we can bring life to others; how we can help others feel fulfilled (physically, mentally and spiritually); how we can shine out as a light into the world; how we can be ‘Good Shepherds’ to others and how we can protect each other.
We are always keen to hear about things your children are doing to ‘think beyond themselves’ and would love to hear about the ways in which they are living out our school values at home and in the wider community. Please do email Mrs Thompson-Brown with any details! firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be launching our ‘40 acts for Lent’ challenge shortly after half term and would encourage as many pupils, parents and other members of our school community to get involved as possible.
These are examples of our recent assemblies.
