School Worship

This part of the school's website provides parents and children with information on the school's worship themes and organisation. During periods of school closure or national lock-down, this part of the website can be used to access any online worship activities.


Worship Themes:

School worship follows a series of interlinked themes that are organised into six areas of focus. These are Love, Faith, Courage, Aspiration, Resilience and Respect.

Each values is explored through whole school and Gospel worship and where appropriate this is followed up through class worship.

Monday:        The Main School Worship 

Tuesday:        Singing Worship

Worship is best viewed as a family as each story has questions for reflection. These reflections can be as simple as recalling the story to discussing what messages it might contain.

Worship this Term

The worship theme for Term 3 is the value of "Resilience" This is explored in a number of ways and will build on the school's core value of Love (and Kindness).
