Whole School Collective Worship
Mrs Box plans and leads Collective Worship with the whole school every Monday Morning. It is linked to the Gospel readings from Sunday Mass as well as relevant themes linking to our liturgical year and diocesan themes such as Year of The Eucharist.
On a Friday each class teacher takes it in turn to plan and deliver a whole school Collective Worship. Again this links to the liturgical year as well as events of the week. Achievements and celebrations also take place during our Friday Collective Worship and on the last Friday of every month each class leads their own Candle Time. Families and parishioners are invited to come along- they are always very well attended.
Children are supported in planning and leading liturgical prayer in their class. They are encouraged to think about how they will gather together, they listen carefully to the Word and think about their mission in carrying out the gospel message within their daily lives at both school and home. They develop a wonderful sense of awe and wonder about the small things they can do to help make a big difference. They recognise that praying is one of those things and enjoy gathering indoors and outdoors.
Our class liturgies show clear progression in terms of leadership and as the children reach KS2 they become confident liturgical prayer leaders; independently planning within small groups.
