Prayer plays a very important role in helping our children to further their spiritual development.
Whole School Collective Worship
On a Monday morning, each week, children gather together for Collective Worship. This morning liturgy focuses on the Gospel from the previous Sunday. At the end of the prayer time, each class is presented with a weekly mission linked to the Gospel.
Our children say morning, afternoon and home time payers every day. The RE curriculum allows regular opportunities for the children to pray around a class focal point and to reflect on key religious themes. Children plan and lead weekly liturgies in class and parents are invited into school to share key class liturgies with the children.
For five minutes each day, each class takes part in Christian Meditation. This gives the children a chance to quietly reflect and to know how to take time out of their day to focus their thoughts and prayers. Music is played whilst children focus on images, hymns, artwork or scripture which links to something important to them or something they feel they need to focus on as a group.
Our Mini Vinnies have set up a quiet prayer space for all children to use during lunchtime.
Weekly prayers for parents, staff and children.
Each Thursday, staff, parents, carers and all family members are welcome to come into school to join our prayer sessions. These sessions provide a short time to come together, find support as part of our school family and reflect on our busy lives. (Every Thursday, Class 4, 8:30am – 8:45am)
