Through our programme of collective worship, we aim to develop the children's understanding of what is right and what is wrong, giving them strong guidance in helping them to develop core values that will help them to make good choices. As a Church school our worship promote strong Christian Values, as well as the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and the mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
Collective Worship and Picture News:
As part of our Collective Worship provision we use 'Picture News’ resource for Faith Schools: Each week a current news story is chosen, and an image from the news story is shared with a thought-provoking question for the children to explore and discuss. The Pictures and stories are carefully chosen for Primary aged pupils, and designed to provide opportunities for children to consider what is happening in the wider world and develop respect for other’s beliefs, feelings and faiths. We aim to share these with you to discuss further at home if you wish, via the school’s Facebook pages. Next week’s picture and story is below, to give you an idea of what this looks like:
