Our daily Christian based worship times foster the pupil's spiritual development and build on their experiences in RE lessons. Worship is led by the Head Teacher, members of the teaching staff, the FACE Committee or visiting clergy.
Daily Collective Worship has been adapted to enable us to work within COVID restrictions through either Class Worship, Upper and Lower School Worship or whole school worship via Zoom or outside in the sunshine!
On Monday, School Worship will focus on the value for the term and this will be followed up on in class to allow time for reflection and individual questioning. Each Wednesday, our Open The Book Team, Paul Bennet from Youth For Christ or Rev Rod Paterson leads worship. This is always a special time and gives everyone, including staff, an opportunity to take time during the week for personal reflection and prayer.
Every Friday we hold a special celebration worship, which celebrates children’s successes; children are nominated by each other to receive either a Values award which may relate to our school values, British Values or the value theme for the term. There is also an additional award for our Individual Recognition Award which is awarded for the Teaching and Learning behaviours the children have demonstrated during the week.
Below are links to the values we have explored so far this year.
Weekly Picture News
Each class participates in a weekly Picture News Class Collective Worship. Each week an engaging image is displayed which reflects current events from around the world. Through class discussions, children are able to reflect on global events and speak with an increased awareness of the impact these events can have on others. This time is invaluable to provide children with a voice and for them to recognise that it is our world where we all matter.
Here, at Picture News, we are incredibly passionate about teaching. We want to provide our schools with resources to create engaging and exciting lessons, allowing opportunities for children to learn about our world, develop independence, resilience, respect and unlock their own drive and passion for learning. Teaching the news not only provides great content and stimulus and grips children’s attention, it is also something that the children can impact. It is current, happening now and so their voice is given meaning and purpose. It is our world and we all matter.
Children are exposed to a range of current issues including political, religious, cultural, environmental, social, moral and spiritual. Picture news also makes meaningful, relevant links to our British Values, encouraging children to demonstrate respect and tolerance.
