Collective Worship

We place Christ at the centre of all we do and therefore we feel that Collective Worship is one way in developing a way for children to develop a relationship with Jesus and come to know him better.

Collective Worship and Assembly Timetable Monday: Key Stage Collective Worship @ 9:00 am Wednesday: The “Wednesday Word” in classrooms Friday: Whole School Gospel Celebration @ 2.30pm

Whole School Collective Worship Mr.Ryan and Mr.Conwell lead the whole school in Collective Worship every week. The theme is closely linked with the liturgical year and the Gospel so that all members of the school community have an understanding of the readings, colours and messages we listen to and see on Sunday at mass.

Class Worship The children take ownership of their learning and develop their own relationship with God. In Foundation and KS1 Teachers guide children through prayer and liturgy. KS 2 children plan and deliver their own Liturgies. This time allows children to be reflective and think of their own needs and the needs of others.

Parent Liturgies Parent’s Liturgies will be taking place throughout the Year both in School and Church. Please check Newsletters.

Childrens’ Prayer Groups
Throughout the Year of The Church, children are invited to pray in school with both staff and parishioners. In May and October we pray The Rosary as well as Lenten and Advent Prayers. These are held in our Peace Room.
