As a Church of England primary school and part of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocesan Multi Academy Trust, we hold to a vision that worship is an affirmation and celebration of our Christian ethos where staff and children have the opportunity to learn, worship and grow in their understanding of God and of themselves.
Worship should enable participants to develop an understanding of the Christian belief in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We recognise that not all staff or children have a Christian faith. We welcome everyone to Collective Worship and offer it as a shared space for reflection and spiritual growth where our school community can grow together in love and respect.
Planning for Collective Worship must is led by the Headteacher and plans follow the cycle of the Anglican year, celebrating festivals and saints’ days as appropriate. Each half-term explores a Christian value in a variety of ways, through story, song, prayer and reflection. While we have five school Christian values which are particularly important to us, Hope, Compassion, Creativity, Respect and Perseverance we focus on 12 different values over a 2 year cycle. These values include Justice, Trust and Friendship.
We meet as a school on a daily basis. This is normally in the school hall but once a week either KS1 or KS2 visit our parish church, All Saints. Collective Worship is usually led by the headteacher or the Collective Worship Team, however we also have class assemblies and visits from other church groups and organisations. We try to regularly evaluate our Collective Worship to reflect on the impact it is having. This is done by pupils and governors.
