Collective Worship In Class
Teachers lead this with their class. It will be linked to the term’s pair of virtues that are being focused on, or it will be based on intentions of individuals.
Whole School Assemblies
We meet weekly in the school hall. Sometimes the assembly is led by our Headteacher or one of our class teachers.
Tuesday – Key Stage One and Two lead their own assembly based upon a saint’s feast day, one of our virtues or a gospel reading.
Wednesday – Both Key Stage One and Two meet for our Wednesday Word.
Friday – We meet together to celebrate all the positive things that have taken place in school during the week. Children are recognised for their hard work, as well as the skills and talents that they have shared with us. We also celebrate children’s achievements outside of school. All members of our school community are welcome to join us.
Worship Through Music
Once a week, both Key Stages meet to learn new hymns which we sing in our Mass and assemblies.
Whole School Mass
Fortnightly, we celebrate Mass in our school hall. All members of our school community are welcome to join us. The children lead the liturgy, they write and read their own bidding prayers, and they take on the role of altar servers. All our children demonstrate reverence and respect during our services.
For special Feast days and at other times during the year we also attend Mass at Blessed Dominic Barberi church. Children also lead the Liturgy and take on roles during these Masses too.
