Collective Worship takes place each day and is an important part of the daily routine.
Themes are planned for each week to cover a range of topics and delivered by the senior leadership team, teachers and children.
Themes are based on important values- love, hope, justice, thankfulness, compassion, etc…. They reflect the Christian themes and the teachings of Jesus as well as incorporating stories and messages for other world religions.
Children are encouraged to develop a positive attitude to other people, respecting their right to hold different beliefs for their own and towards living in a society of diverse faiths and religions. The children plan and lead acts of Collective Worship. See the photos in this link for the Story Of Daniel in the Lion’s Den, reflecting on Justice and whether Daniel received Justice?
