Our school has a strong Christian ethos, placing emphasis on teaching children to appreciate moral values such as love and respect for one another, integrity, compassion, equality and forgiveness. Through our times of worship, we provide opportunities for children and staff to reflect on many aspects of Christianity as well as exploring views of other world religions.
Members of the church team lead worship once every week and children are encouraged to become actively involved. During this time, they learn many new songs that they not only sing with great enthusiasm but often learn to sign as well. Some of our children also belong to the 'Church School Team' and they are responsible for planning Acts of Worship that mark significant events with Mrs. Batts, our RE Leader, and the church team. You can see examples of these on our Community Links page (Church of the Good Shepherd).
Please note that parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or part of religious education or worship. You will need to speak to the Headteacher should this be the case for your child.
For an overview of our collective worship themes, and how they are developed, please see our 'Curriculum' page.
In 2014, the children entered a competition to write a school prayer that encompassed our school values.
Our School Prayer
Help us to 'Prepare for Life' by
Loving each other,
Acting with integrity and truth.
Forgiving people by being strong in our hearts,
And treating others with equality and respect.
Help us to remember these values on our big adventure to adulthood.
