Acts of Worship

Our Collective Worship is held daily within the school hall, classrooms or, if appropriate, outside. The School celebrates various Christian festivals such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter at St Mary’s Church, Vernham Dean; many of these our parents/carers are invited to attend.

Monday: Whole School Worship led by the Headteacher. This is where we introduce the weekly focus which is linked to our school or Christian Values.

Tuesday: Class or House Worship with a focus given by the Headteacher in Monday’s worship.

Wednesday: Whole School Worship led by the teaching staff or children in the Worship working party. Here we explore our school’s Christian Values.

Thursday: Whole School Worship led by the parish vicar Rev Trev or local minister Mr David Sullivan. During this worship biblical stories and songs are shared with a moral for the children to reflect upon.

Friday: Whole School Celebration Worship led by the Headteacher. Parents are invited to this as two children from each class are chosen for Achievement and Behaviour and Values.
