Collective Worship

Collective Worship

In Church of England schools, collective worship reflects the traditions of the Church of England and develops learners' understanding of Anglican traditions and practice.

Collective worship gives pupils and school staff the opportunity to:

  • Engage in an act of community.
  • Express praise and thanksgiving to God.
  • Be still and reflect.
  • Explore the big questions of life and respond to national events.
  • Foster respect and deepen spiritual awareness.
  • Reflect on the character of God and on the teachings of Christ.
  • Affirm Christian values and attitudes.
  • Share each other’s joys and challenges.
  • Celebrate special times in the Christian calendar.

At Shoscombe Church School we meet as a whole school for collective worship at the end of each school day. Our week generally follows this timetable:

Mondays – reflecting on our school core value of the term

Tuesdays – led by members of our local church

Wednesdays – reflecting on British values and current affairs, sometimes led by classes or pupil voice groups

Thursdays – alternate weeks are led by our singing teachers or the ‘Open the Book’ team who lead children through a bible story using drama

Fridays – celebrating our achievements of the week

Over the year each class will prepare a Prayer Service for the whole school and a class sharing assembly to which parents are warmly invited.
