Our daily Christian based worship fosters the children’s spiritual development and builds on their experiences in RE teaching. Assemblies are led by the Senior Leadership Team (SLT), members of the teaching staff, our Worship team or visiting clergy.
Coming together each day allows us to revisit the school vision and values on a daily basis. There are also many good and bad things happening in the world and assemblies are an excellent opportunity to help children to understand them and how they are affected.
Monday: Special celebration, led by Headteacher
Tuesday: Values worship, led by SLT
Wednesday: Whole school praise, led by two teaching staff
Thursday: Visiting clergy including open the book
Friday: Class/year group assembly
Each act of worship is based around the term's Christian value. Sometimes we share Bible stories, stories from other faiths or other stories which help us to explore the value further. We also sing songs, some of which are 'iSingPOP' songs. We have the opportunity for quiet reflection as well as guided prayer. We ensure our worship and prayer life is deeply engaging and provides children the opportunity to be closer to God. Children have written prayers for each of our values which are displayed in a prayer book.
As a Christian school we believe in the power of prayer. If you have any concerns, whether for yourself or someone close to you, please come into the school reception area. Here you will find our prayer box. Feel free to use the cards provided to complete a prayer request and place it inside the box. It will be passed onto St Catharine's church, where your request will be prayed for in one of their services.
