Worship is a central part of school life: the pupils take part in daily worship either as a whole school, Key Stage or class. The focus of worship will be one of the school values: these can be linked to stories from the Bible as well as linking to the pupils’ own lives.
Collective worship gives pupils and school staff the opportunity to:
Engage in an act of community
Express praise and thanksgiving to God-through discussion and music
Be still and reflect
Explore the big questions of life and respond to national events
Foster respect and deepen spiritual awareness
Reflect on the character of God and on the teachings of Christ
Affirm Christian values and attitudes
Share each other’s joys and challenges
Celebrate special times in the Christian calendar
Celebrate and discuss other religions
The local clergy, foundation governors and visitors come in and lead worship on occasions which allows the pupils to experience more varied worship.
We have close connections to All Saints Church, Middle Woodford, where the pupils attend weekly worship.
