Collective Worship In Class
Teachers and children lead this with their class on Thursdays. 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 or Saints’ Feast Days.
Whole School Celebration Assemblies
We meet weekly in the school hall on Friday afternoon. Sometimes the assembly is led by our Headteacher or one of our class teachers.
We will alternate each week between a whole school celebration assembly and an individual class led celebration of learning.
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.
Virtues Based Collective Worship
On Monday, Mrs Penman will lead the school in learning about virtues that we will be focussing on for this term. She will also help us to think about how we can live out these virtues in our everyday lives.
On Tuesday, Mr Higgins will lead our collective worship.
On Wednesday morning- Both Key Stage One and Two meet to share our Wednesday Word and learn from this week’s Gospel reading.
Worship Through Music
Once a week, on Wednesday afternoon both Key Stages meet to learn new hymns which we sing in our Mass and assemblies.
Whole School Mass
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.
