Collective Worship

Collective Worship is an important part of each day for our school community as a Church of England school, and we will endeavour to hold an act of Collective Worship every day.

You can find our policies relating to Collective Worship and Religious Education by following this link:

RE and Collective Worship


During Collective Worship, whether in the hall, classroom or outside, we will apply the following four key elements of worship:

Gathering Making special and significant this part of the day through appropriate symbol and ceremony

Engaging Using a variety of the best available techniques to stimulate interest in the content

Responding Ensuring there is time and opportunity for individual, group reflection and thought, so those attending can respond in a variety of ways

Sending Summarising the worship in a meaningful short message used to create an opportunity for those attending to implement the ideas covered and to conclude the worship


The themes for our Collective Worships are discussed between staff, the children and our local vicar, Rev. Philippa Mills. The children are particularly good at suggestions questions, stories and songs for us to share.

In Collective Worships and RE lessons we support the children’s thinking about spiritual aspects of life through the ‘Five Moments’. Below you can read staff and pupils definitions of these and examples of Moments that have been shared:

As part of our thinking about Creation and the amazing world we live in, the children created ideas for a ‘teaspoon’ prayer (tsp). This involves thinking of things they are: thankful for, sorry for, and ask for, for the future, by saying please. You can read their ideas below.

When exploring the theme of Courage, children from across the school created the following Courage Acrostic poems
