Each term the theme of our Collective Worship links with one of our agreed values.
Here is a summary of our values for this year 2019/20.
|Term 1||Term 2||Term 3|
|Creativity||Hope & Peace||Trust|
|Term 4||Term 5||Term 6|
In addition we link to the festivals and seasons of the church calendar, to national celebrations and special days and enrich our whole school ethos.
During Collective Worship, these values provide opportunities for discussion about diversity, spiritual growth and development in our children and adults, demonstrated through the teachings of Jesus, stories from a range of cultures and backgrounds. In addition, the school uses the Christian Values of the 'Roots and Fruits' materials to add depth to the values teaching.
The Christian character of our school positively contributes to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children by providing opportunities for them to learn about other people’s faiths, feelings and values during Collective Worship, including those planned by pupils, reflection times, RE lessons and extra-curricular activities.
At the start of the academic year, each class elects someone to join the Worship and Values Team. This year there are 9 members of the team from Years 1 to 6. Each year the team agree actions to complete. This year the children have chosen to develop the use of the Prayer and Reflection Room, extend pupil roles in Collective Worship and gather the views of staff and pupils on Collective Worship.
