Collective Worship

Worship is an important part of the school day. Everyday the school join together to take part in an inclusive act of worship which is rooted in the teachings of the Bible. In Key Stage One and Key Stage Two, this takes place in one of our school halls. In Reception, this takes place within the classroom setting. On Wednesday we all go to Church together where Reverend Richard leads us in worship. We are also fortunate to recieve regular visits from other local Anglican clergy. Once a term, every class lead an act of worship and parents are invited. You can find the dates for these on our newsletter.

Weekly Reflection

This week we are thinking about the second week of advent, particularly focusing on Peace. We have thought about how the Bible tells us 'Blessed are the Peacemakers'. 

The children have thought about how they can be peacemakers in the world in their everyday actions. We have praised Jesus by singing 'Make me a Channel of your Peace' - Click here to sing along!
