Collective Worship

Unlocking every child's ability to achieve through faith and inspired learning

Collective Worship

“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

John 4:23-24      

Collective worship is an important part of our daily school life.  It is a time when the school comes together to learn about and reflect on the messages of the Bible and Jesus Christ, to praise God and Jesus and to reflect on the ways that the Christian teachings impact on and influence our own lives.

Worship in Church

The church of St Peter and St Paul is located 5 minutes away from the school in the heart of the village.  Each term we hold an act of worship in the church which relates to the church or school calendar such as a Mothering Sunday Service, a Christmas service and a Leavers’ service.  Classes visit the church to support the children’s understanding of Christian traditions and beliefs, and the R.E. curriculum.
