Collective worship

 Colossians 3:23 23Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the LORD,

not for human masters

At Kirk Smeaton C of E VC School, collective worship is part of every day, it is focused around our vision statement, 'Let God's love shine, as we care for each other and learn together.'

Our care values are:

Respect- we respect our golden rules and everyone within and outside of school.

Perseverance- we try our best and when things are hard we try harder.

Humility- we are no more important than anyone else, we work together to be a greater team.

 

We usually meet in the hall and all Y6 pupils have a part to play.  Y6 pupils set up music, candles, liturgical drapes, a picture of the queen and the crucifix.  Pupils usually lead collective worship with the support of Mrs Cuddy or other teacher.

Collective worship is a time to reflect on the day or week and develop spirituality of the whole person.   It is inviting and engaging for all.  The purpose is not to covert, but it's to learn about faiths and empower self belief and growth.  It is important for both adults and children and allows time for everyone to revisit the day in a reflective and positive way. 

 

Monday- we learn about bible stories and relate these to the Christian value for the week.

Tuesday- we are joined by Fr Adrian, the parish vicar.  Fr Adrian talks us through being reflective and how to be a better person based on the stories within the bible.

Wednesday- all classes have collective worship within their own classes.

Thursday- collective worship is focused around singing songs relating to the Christian values for the next week.

Friday- Celebration worship is a summary of the week, we review the week, children get a range of rewards, class councils present awards and positive work for the week.  Credits, attendance and spelling shed scores are read out and celebrated by all.

 

Each week we have a Christian value, bible story and statement of how to be better people and learn about God's teachings.

Each week classes have debates, philosophical questions, emotional literacy and a range of other self and community reflecting ways.  The children are encouraged to support others within the local and wider community, they have in the past raised money and served for the elderly.

 

Schools are required by law to provide a daily act of collective worship, mainly Christian in character, unless the Standing Advisory Committee on Religious Education (SACRE) has determined otherwise.

Parents can opt for their child not to attend collective worship, if you would like to discuss this further, please speak with Mrs Cuddy.
