Daily Worship offers the opportunity for the whole school community to grow spiritually through experiences of prayer, stillness and reflection. Statutory obligations are fulfilled.
On a weekly basis, we have an Achievement Service (Golden Assembly), which recognises children’s achievement both within and outside of our school. The certificates awarded include ‘sharing a smile, perseverance, engaged and independent learning and progress.’
We also celebrate children’s achievements outside of school to recognise when they complete good deeds to support others in need e.g. when children have had their hair cut to make a wig for a child who is undergoing treatment for cancer. The children see their good deeds within the context of “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.”
We also have special services to celebrate Harvest, Remembrance, Advent, Lent, Easter and our Year 6 Leavers Service.
Children and adults appreciate Christian Worship in different ways e.g. music, prayer, silence, Bible stories and poems. It is a reflective experience for children with different faiths or non. Children are often asked to give their viewpoint on the theme of worship and the impact it has had on them. Their responses are often deep and thought provoking.
