Religious Education and Collective Worship

As a church school, our daily act of worship is really important to us. Our worship is invitational, inclusive and inspirational. In worship, we help children to develop spiritually whether they are Christian, belong to another faith or have no faith.  We reflect on our world and our place in it, as well as thinking about the rights of children across the world.

Grown-ups are invited to join us in the hall for worship at 9.10am three times a week:

  • On Mondays for our Amazing Attitude Award Assembly when children’s learning behaviours during the previous week are celebrated.
  • On Thursdays for worship led by clergy from St Laurence Church, Northfield.
  • On Friday for our World Aware Worship including a celebration of birthdays from the week (Sunday-Saturday).

We will let grown-ups know if your child is receiving an award or will be having their birthday candles, but you are welcome to come on any of these days, whether your child will be at the front or not.

We also have a Celebration Assembly once per half term, where children can bring any certificates, medals, trophies etc. from outside of school to show and we can celebrate with them and be thankful for the good things in our lives.  The next date will be in the diary dates section of the weekly newsletter, usually the last Tuesday of the half term. Grown-ups will also be welcome to join us for this worship.

We attend St Laurence Church, Northfield, to celebrate some of the main Christian festivals.

Religious Education is mostly Christian with links made to other world faiths to develop understanding and respect.

Parents have the right to withdraw their child from all or part of the Religious Education and Collective Worship provided. The Headteacher must be informed if parents wish to exercise this right. Alternative provision can be arranged for children at these times.

For more information, see our Collective Worship Policy on our Policies and Documents page, and our Religious Education Policy on our Curriculum page.
