“A Christian school is one in which the atmosphere has that kind of openness about it, that sense that people are worth spending time with, that people need time to grow, need loving attention”.Archbishop Rowan Williams, 2009
Collective worship is an important part of our life as a Church school and our programme provides an excellent opportunity for our whole community to take time out of the normal hectic day to focus on issues beyond the taught curriculum. We base this programme on a half termly ‘Value’, aligned to our school vision, and break this down into a weekly ‘Theme for the week’. Weekly worship materials contain suggested readings, prayers, images and ideas for reflection.
Every member of the school community shares in a daily act of worship. This meets the requirements of the 1988 Education Act, which states that every student must attend an act of worship every day and that these acts of worship should be “predominantly Christian”. This may be in one of: Year group or House Assemblies; in class or through Form Time with class teachers or form tutors or in our dedicated Prayer Space in smaller groups.
