Limitless Learning Nurtured by our Christian Ethos

Collective Worship

Collective Worship

In our collective worship, children are encouraged to consider their feelings and the feelings of others linked to our half termly values. Religious topics are explored which can be appreciated at all levels of understanding and developed appropriately with the different age groups. We welcome guest speakers every week and local clergy termly.

This term our values are: Friendship and Creativity.

We encourage families to use the Home School Values resources as a way to stimulate discussion and reflection on our current values at home;

Arrangements for the act of collective worship are made by the school in accordance with the requirements of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998, as amended. Parents and carers may, if they so wish, withdraw their children from the arrangements for collective worship or religious education. Such requests should be made to the head teacher in writing. Pupils withdrawn from collective worship or religious education will normally remain in a classroom and prepare for the day’s activities under the supervision of a teacher.

Musician of the Month


When the children enter and leave Collective Worship we strive for a calm and reflective environment and music plays a key part in this. We also want to provide the children with an understanding and appreciation of music. The children listen to a range of genres from the present and past, and from around the world, with each musician's music being played for the month. 

This month's musician is: John Williams

Last month's musician was: Alexis Ffrench.
