Get in touch


We work with the local vicar/priest and other church members to plan and deliver acts of worship both in the church and in classrooms that are invitational, reflective and engaging. There is flexibility in the provision of collective worship to enable all pupils to benefit without compromising their beliefs.


Collective worship gives pupils and school staff the opportunity to:


  • Engage in an act of community.
  • Express praise and thanksgiving to God.
  • 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.


Worship in church is enhanced by our wonderful choir who sing from the choir stalls.

Worship Themes 



Our worship is enriched by the use of:


  • Quotes and questions to encourage deeper thinking about each value
  • Photographs and posters to root the teaching in the everyday experience of children
  • Stories, poems and art, much of which has been especially commissioned for this book
  • Prayers and guided reflections from traditional and contemporary authors
  • Fruits from the Roots – ideas to develop the theme of the worship through the week
