Collective Worship

Collective worship is an extremely important part of our school day.  It is integral to our school life, containing messages which we encourage children to take home and into the wider community.  We adopt a varied and creative approach, welcoming a number of visitors to lead school worship and involve all our children as they do so.  Different forms of collective worship take place at our school such as:


  • Throughout the week children from all year groups gather together for whole school worship led by Reverend Andy and our teaching team.
  • Class worship takes place weekly in every year group.  This is an opportunity to enable the children to deepen their understanding and thoughts behind each Christian message.  
  • We gather for whole school celebration worship every Friday inviting the parent community to celebrate with us.
  • Each classroom has a dedicated reflection area.  Children are given time and opportunities for personal prayer through the use of prayer books and baskets.
  • All children are invited to pray at regular intervals throughout the day with our lunchtime and end of the day prayers.

Please feel free to enjoy some of our Collective Worship recordings:

Thursday 25th March 

Is it important to say sorry and forgive?

Think about times when you have had to forgive and times when you have been forgiven. Have you had a quarrel before abs how was it resolved?


Wednesday 24th March

Collective Worship with Rev. Andy 

Tuesday 23rd March 

If we hold on to the hurt feelings, they can damage our friendships.  We call it bearing a grudge. How easy is it to forgive? 

Thursday 18th March 

What does it mean to forgive somebody? 

Wednesday 17th March

Collective Worship with Rev. Andy

Tuesday 16th March

Jesus often uses parables to teach people about important truths. One of the best known parable is The Prodigal Son or The Lost Son.  Why do you think Jesus told this story?  

Monday 15th March

The Bible tells us if we have done something wrong we need to say sorry to God and he will forgive us.  In a similar way, if you have upset a friend you should say sorry and they need to be brave enough to forgive you. 

Thursday 11th March

Wednesday 10th March 

It is sometimes difficult to trust when we are worried or frightened.  How does Jesus show his faith and trust in God?

Thursday 7th January- Flame of Hope

Mary and Joseph put their trust in God through all kinds of challenging circumstances.  This growing trust was the basis for their hope that God was with them and their future as a family was completely in his hands.  

Wednesday 6th January - Epiphany

Epiphany is celebrated 12 days after Christmas on the 6th January and is the time when Christians remember the Wise Men (also sometimes called the Three Kings) who visited Jesus.  Epiphany is also when some churches remember when Jesus was baptised, when he was about 30, and started to teach people about God.  Epiphany means 'revelation' and both the visit of the wise men and his baptism are important times when Jesus was 'revealed' to be very important.
