Church School Distinctiveness
We enjoy a daily act of collective worship, sometimes as a whole school or key stage or simply with our own class. Monday's assembly is lead by the year 6 drama team who present a drama or story, aided by Mrs Thompson. We particularly enjoy having visitors to lead our worship including Reverend Fran who visits us twice a term to lead an assembly. Mrs McIntee and Mr Dunn lead the children in learning and practising hymns and songs to aid worship across all our assemblies and on Fridays we have our Celebration Assemblies to which parents are invited. The children receive various certificates for exceptional behaviour and achievement which are recorded in the 'Golden Book'. These certificates also include the red and yellow spot certificates as well as various sports recognition. The Golden Duster award and Attendance Award is also apart of the celebration assembly.
Here is our current collective worship plan.
Church School Values
We currently have a two year rolling programme of values which we use as the outline for our Collective Worship themes. (Please see the list of values attached.)
The Church School Values we are learning about this year are:
Term 1: Friendship
Term 2: Be thankful
Term 3: Generosity
Term 4: Perseverance
Term 5: Justice
Term 6: Courage
Our next value is Justice when we will also be thinking about who our heroes are and how they fight for justice.
'Seek justice, love mercy and walk humbly with your God'
'Be strong and courageous, do not be frightened, do not be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you.'
Our Bible story for this term is Moses and Pharaoh - Exodus 4 - 6
A Christian Perspective on Justice - the Justice revealed in the Bible is always seen in the context of love. It includes the call to take responsibility for one another, especially the poor and oppressed, and to see that no-one is excluded from the essentials in life.
We will be considering the questions:
Each term, every class develops some work for the Values board which is on display in the hall.

Here are the liturgical colours for 2019. We put the correct coloured cloth over our lectern in collective worship.
