Our Church School

We are proud to be a Church School. 

We are...

A school family, learning for life in all its fullness.

Collective Worship

Collective worship forms an important part of our school life. 

Our worship is an opportunity to come together to discuss and explore our ideas, further developing our spirituality.

See the presentation below to see how we structure our collective worship.

Collective Worship

Developing spirituality through 'Windows, Mirrors and Doors.'

Windows: giving children opportunities to become aware of the world in new ways; to wonder about life’s ‘WOWs’ (things that are amazing) and ‘OWs’ (things that bring us up short). In this children are learning about life in all its fullness.

Mirrors: giving children opportunities to reflect on their experiences; to meditate on life’s big questions and to consider some possible answers. In this they are learning from life by exploring their own insights and perspectives and those of others.

Doors: giving children opportunities to respond to all of this; to do something creative as a means of expressing, applying and further developing their thoughts and convictions. In this they are learning to live by putting into action what they are coming to believe and value.
