Will experience an act of collective worship each day, although this is not always on a whole school basis. The act of collective worship will focus on moral, personal and social issues with reference to aspects of Christianity and other religions where relevant.
It is part of the school's policy to involve the main local Christian denominations in the life of the school from time to time to take assemblies and meet the children.
As is the case in RE, you may wish to withdraw your child from this aspect of your child’s education, but will require a signed letter to this effect should you require to do so.
The pattern of collective worship is as follows:
Monday – Whole school assembly focussing on SMSC/PSHE
Tuesday- Class Assembly
Wednesday – Singing assembly
Thursday – Whole school assembly taken by Rev. Weldon
Friday – Whole school achievement assembly
Friday’s assembly includes the presentation of class trophy awards for the child of the week, celebrating achievement across the school. This is part of our whole school approach to learning and positive behaviour and acts as a focus for the week, encouraging children to do their best. Parents are invited to take part in this assembly on the last Friday of every month, when the FONTS 100 club draw also takes place, giving prize-winners a chance to win a cash prize.
As a school we also celebrate aspects of the Christian calendar including Harvest Festival, Christmas, including singing in the Church, and Easter. We also celebrate other faiths in assemblies and RE.
