Collective Worship takes place daily in many forms and contributes significantly towards our children’s spiritual development. We understand that time for reflection during Collective Worship and at other times during the day is an essential part of developing our children’s spiritual, moral, social, and cultural (SMSC) awareness.
Throughout COVID-19 restrictions our school has provided high quality virtual Collective Worship. It has been of the upmost importance that Collective Worship, which is such an integral part of the school day, has been maintained and shared with all. This has included children and staff in school in their ‘bubbles’, those children and staff at home ‘self-isolating’ and through our website for the wider community. The way in which virtual Collective Worship has been planned and created, along with the delivery in the classroom has ensured that children and staff continue to have ‘time to breathe’ and reflect.
Our Collective Worship Council hold an important role in our school. Made up from a child in each year group throughout the school their main aims are:
As a Collective Worship Councillor the children may be required to assist in planning assemblies, taking part in church services, teaching other children in their class about Christian topics, creating drama sketches on Bible stories, demonstrating values and writing prayers. They will also be required to attend meetings with other Collective Worship Councillors to discuss Collective Worship and how they can make them even more exciting.
All of our councillors have very important jobs that are specifically linked to our Collective Worship
Some of their jobs include;
