All classes participate in a daily act of collective worship. This may take the form of class prayers, liturgies or assemblies. This is also linked to the Statements to Live By, which are an integral part of school life, and to the Ten:Ten resources, used by staff and pupils to promote and develop whole school and class-based collective worship in an innovative and reflective way.
We celebrate achievements for Heart of Gold, Special Effort, Presentation (of self and of work) and the use of our talents, through awards from home for sports, drama, etc. Children actively lead and participate in prayers, liturgies, Masses and House Meetings, where we teach them to be responsible, reflective, aware of others and aware of God's world; in which we are children with a voice and all have a potential to strive for good, work for a better world and always see the best in ourselves and in others.
In order to fulfil its mission statement, the school places great importance upon the daily act of worship- just like Jesus gathering with His disciples.
To provide experience of a loving and worshipping community
To provide the opportunities for pupils to worship God
To provide the opportunities for spiritual and moral issues
To explore own and others beliefs/values
To encourage ownership and participation through active involvement in presentation of worship and listening/joining in worship
Brighten up the World with a Smile!
Year 6 hosted an assembly on Brightening the World up with a smile. During this assembly we watched a video on how to make people smile. After the assembly we set a mission for the school - WWJD. This means stop and think, what would Jesus do? before we act.
