Collective worship is central to our school and an integral part of our school day. For more information about our Christian Vision, please see the Governors' tab, Church Links tab and the Vision and Values tab. Here is an example of a worship table/reflection space, which we have in each classroom.
Daily worship of a broadly Christian nature is statutory in all schools (not just Church schools) and it gives children an opportunity for meditation and reflection. Collective worship (sometimes in class and sometimes as a whole school or Key Stage) is for a few minutes each morning (at other times as appropriate in Nursery and Reception) and is partly teacher-led and partly child-led. The format varies and we generally base the theme on our half term's Christian value but this can vary according to other festivals and acts of remembrance.
Collective Worship in our Church of England School. Click on link below to see the guidance from the Church of England that we follow when planning our daily acts of worship. Our school is a member of Liverpool Diocese and we receive support and training from their officers. The Y6 Leavers' Service at Liverpool Cathedral is one of the highlights of the year (see Church Links tab).
We have whole school worship every Monday morning, led by the Headteacher and the children's Worship Council and attended by all children, teachers and TAs. Our beautiful altar cloths were embroidered by Mrs Johnson from St Stephen's Church.
Key Stage Worship/Class Worship is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Class Worship is on Thursdays. Celebration Worship is on Fridays.
