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. Collective Worship on a Monday is lead by the year 6 drama team and the church councillors, who present a drama or story, aided by Mrs Thompson. This explores an aspect of our termly value for the week and we then have follow on activities which we complete in our classrooms.
We particularly enjoy having visitors to lead our worship including Reverend Fran who visits us almost weekly to lead an act of collective worship. The teachers take turns to lead an act of worship which we call 'Tuesday News Day'. This usually involves discussing something significant from the news which we can view on a local, national and international level. We think carefully about how this 'news' has affected people around the world and we link it to our school values.
On Fridays we have our Celebration Worship when the children receive various certificates for exceptional behaviour and achievement which are recorded in the 'Golden Book'. These certificates also include dojo certificates as well as various sports recognition.
