Collective Worship Themes

All children take part in daily Collective Worship. Through Collective Worship our children begin to understand the distinctive features of Anglican practice and the centrality of prayer in worship. Our daily Worship plays a very important part of school life and always starts our school day.

 To help us with Collective Worship we welcome our weekly visits from YEAST, who explore Bible stories with the children and weekly visits from the vicar of All Saints Church, Rev Stuart Grant. 

Collective Worship themes are planned on a termly basis and enable us to reflect on our school vision, our Christian values, the key concepts from Understanding Christianity and the major Christian festivals as well as any current issues that may arise.  We also follow the Journey Through the Bible resources produced by the Diocese of York.

CHURCH SCHOOL AMBASSADORS

We have a group of Year 2 children who are appointed as Church School Ambassadors.  The children apply for these roles. They meet with the headteacher, vicar and values governors to discuss worship and share ideas for improvements.

Our current Church School Ambassadors are: Darcey, Arlo, Hunter, Klara, Frances and Annie.

They help to plan, deliver and evaluate whole school and class Collective Worship.

They help out with daily whole school worship by setting out the worship table, supporting the gathering and sending elements of worship, leading prayers and anything else that is appropriate.

They are expected to always show our vision ‘learn to let your light shine’ both in school and at home.
