Collective Worship

Every school day has an act of collective worship. This can take many different forms, for example Monday is our ‘praise’ worship where we give effort certificates, review team points, draw the golden tickets and celebrate children’s individual and group achievements. On other occasions we encourage a variety of visitors to the school, to enrich our worship and provide the children with examples from a variety of Anglican traditions. Our own clergy lead worship weekly. Class worship are always a highlight. Each class delivers two class worships a year (except Reception), one of which we invite parents in to school to share with their children.

At St. Mary's, RE, collective worship and our whole ethos are based on the teachings of the Church of England. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from collective worship or RE lessons. However, the withdrawal of pupils from formal education and/or worship would not isolate them from the Christian teaching, which the school provides.

Our School Prayer....

This is our school

Let peace dwell here

Let the rooms be full of contentment

Let love abide here

Love of one another, love of life itself and love of God

Let us remember, that as many hands are needed to build a house

So many children of good will are needed to build a school
