“She wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them at the inn.” Luke 2:7
as we celebrate your birth in a stable
we remember all those among us
who are left out, who live in poverty,
who are homeless
and who long to go home.
Make room in our hearts
for our sisters and brothers,
so that we may reach out to them in love.
Whole School Collective Worship
Prayer plays a very important role in helping our children to further their spiritual development.
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.
