Collective Worship

As a Catholic primary school, collective worship plays a fundamental part of daily school life and enables us all to join together as one in prayer and worship.

The school week begins with whole school collective worship.

Please see the following overview.

Growing Closer to God

In its simplest form, prayer is defined as “talking to God.” It is a personal time of opening our hearts to our Heavenly Father and bringing everything in our hearts to Him. Through the Apostle Paul, God asked us to pray. Prayer can be a powerful force for change in our lives, and the importance of doing it on a daily basis should be instilled in our children.

Communication is the foundation for success in any relationship. When we communicate openly and freely with each other, we learn to know each other as individuals. This principle also applies to our relationship with God. By talking to God, we can learn more about who He is and what plan He has for us.

Clases pray together daily at the start of the day, before lunch, after lunch and at the end of the school day.

Some prayers are used regularly, others can be more bespoke for the day or the time of the liturgical year.

As a school we join together regularly to celebrate and worship together.

Our standard timetable for worship is:

  • Monday – Worship led by Mr Sellors/ Mr Lobb
  • Tuesday – Class based, child led Liturgies
  • Wednesday – Singing Praise (hymn practise)
  • Thursday – Whole school/ Class mass or whole school liturgies (see key dates or calendar)
  • Friday – Celebration of Achievement
