Vision for Collective Worship
At All Saints CE it is our aim to ensure Collective Worship is enjoyable for children and staff to participate in. Collective Worship is an integral part of our school day that gives a springboard for 'Letting your light shine'.
What is new?
Collective Worship will take place daily and every Thursday we will explore one of our School Values, focusing on a different Value every half term. (See Christian Ethos)
Collective Worship is led by a team of people in our school including children, Head Teacher, Mr Mawdsley, Mr Coleman, Mr Horton, Mrs Hiscocks, Rev Gill from our local parish church,
After Collective Worship we will all learn more about the Bible and half termly other religious texts by sharing stories together in classes after our daily gathering. We will learn other faith stories by reading a different religious text half termly.
Every school day will start our day saying our school prayer following registration at 9.00am
Our Collective Worship Team will lead prayers, often using a candle to help us reflect on personal prayers, current world events or opportunities to say thanks for enjoyable activities and good things happening.
1) To let our lights shine – with the help of our Collective Worship we need to deepen our knowledge of our Christian values which will help us become more kind, generous, wise, courageous, forgiving and self-controlled people. We will do this by exploring values in Collective Worship and learning Bible stories in our classes.
2) Christian Values- we need to know what our School Christian Values look like in everyday life so that they are central to our heart of our head, hand heart curriculum approach. Eye catching displays help children to understand and use correct vocabulary, raising standards and behaviour across the year groups.
3) Team work – Collective Worship is the gathering together of the school community on a daily basis to think about, respond to, reflect on and consider issues that are important to them as individuals and as a community. The Collective Worship Team will work together to achieve this and write their own prayers, collate feedback about Collective Worship, meet with Rev Gill and help to set up the Collective Worship space.
