Collective Worship and Prayer


We have a daily act of collective worship, which is led by the Headteacher, teachers, our Vicar or children. When we do not have Covid restrictions we meet together in our school hall or in the adjoining church. It is great having the church so close and we often invite our parents for special services such as at Harvest, Christmas and Easter.

Collective worship uses an approach of learning, reflecting and responding to a theme using the idea of windows, mirrors and doors:

  • Windows - learning about an area or subject
  • Mirrors - reflecting what the learning means to them
  • Doors - responding to the ideas by changing their thoughts/ideas/lives, sometimes through prayer

Children have the opportunity to learn about prayer and if they wish, read and write prayers during collective worship and at other times.
