Collective Worship is an important part of our school life; it is at the heart of our school! We come together each day in many different formats, to think, listen, speak, reflect, sing, laugh, celebrate and wonder at our world.
We enjoy sharing this time with lots of different people too; Reverend Nick (from Holy Trinity Church) leads our Worship each Monday, our teachers take their turn, we also enjoy joining in with 'Open the Book' group and helping to tell stories whilst wearing costumes and using props!
Our Church Council are active in and around our Worship times and help to lead various parts as well as planning the ideas and content to fit their chosen themes for each half term.
The themes we focus on are based around the Christian Values which we can all relate to, whether we have a faith or not. Some examples are: love, thankfulness, perseverance, encouragement, forgiveness, trust and many more!
What is our theme this half term?
This year, the Derby Diocese has a focal value of 'Community'. Our values this year will take root in this, expanding on themes and ideas that the children and adults in our school family would like to explore in more depth.
July 2016 - After a year of our new style Collective Worship, we have been seeking thoughts from the children on our next steps. Take a look at us busily working together and discussing our ideas in our family groups.
