These are held each day and are wholly or broadly of a Christian character. A variety of approaches are used, the whole school may join together, there is also regular Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 separate Collective Worship, class based worship or phase worship. This allows us to focus on different themes appropriate for that age range and to involve the children more actively.
Through Collective Worship, we try to make children morally aware and to have more understanding of themselves and others. Children sometimes participate in the presentation of Collective Worship, either as individuals or as a group.
Under the terms of the Education Reform Act 1988 parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education and/or Collective Worship. Alternative provision would be made for any children withdrawn, which would be discussed with the parents concerned. Any parent wishing to withdraw their child should put this in writing to the Headteacher.
