Our daily act of Collective Worship is the heartbeat of the school and can be transformational for all involved. It connects us all at the start of each day. It strengthens and supports the Christian identity of our school and reaffirms our vision and associated values of Love, Courage, Forgiveness, Thankfulness. It is inclusive and open to all, those with Christian faith, other faith or none. We come together as a community to enjoy a time of peace, wonderment and contemplation and where the input of everyone is valued. We use a variety of sung worship, prayer, drama, storytelling, videos and liturgy and everyone is encouraged to reflect on the teachings of the Bible and on big questions about why things happen, what it means to be human and the role God plays in everything.

Collective Worship is led by a number of staff and pupils and takes place in our school hall apart from on Tuesdays where we have our in-class worship sessions. On Wednesdays, our pupils lead our worship as we study a verse from the book of Psalms and think how this relates to the story of the Good Samaritan and in turn our school vision. Reverend Robb comes into school every Thursday to deliver Collective Worship and we love to answer all of his thought provoking questions!

Our Friday Worship is when families can celebrate our learning with us in St. Leonard’s Church, which is only a few minutes walk from school!
