St Mary's CE Primary About Us

Collective Worship

Collective worship is a central part of the school day for both children and staff. It is an opportunity for us to gather together to worship God, to consider spiritual and moral issues and to explore our own beliefs. The children take active participation through class led worship, leading in prayer, acting, singing and supporting worship. Our worship has a distinctively Christian theme and we develop a theme across the term with the children.

We have 6 Christian themes throughout the year. The themes that we follow are shown below:

Year AYear B

During celebration worship, each Friday, we ensure the achievements of the children are celebrated. There are a number of ways that we recognise our children through recognition of learning, those children who go above and beyond always and children who exemplify our Christian values.

To mark the special times in the Christian calendar, the children take part in celebration services such as Harvest, Christingle, Carol Services, an Easter celebration service and Leavers service. The children take an active part in the services and the local church lead and support in these celebrations. Most of these are held in the local church.

Please see our Collective Worship Policy below for further details.
