Collective Workship

Collective worship / Assemblies

 Collective Worship takes place daily.  It enables children to share whatever possible in an act of worship, either as a whole school, a year group or as a class. It aims to give children an opportunity to worship, to consider spiritual and moral issues and to explore their own beliefs. Children should be able to be involved at different levels, as an observer, an enquirer or an active participant.

Each ½ term there is a focus that makes links between different faiths, the National SEAL programme and a focus on a whole school ‘Value’ statement.

The person planning the assembly has the freedom to lead according to their own preference. They may use drama, mime, story — telling, puppets, poetry/meditation to convey ideas.

 

The main themes are usually of a Christian nature but opportunities are also taken to  incorporate some of the main festivals from other major religions.
