As a Church school, Collective Worship is an important time during which we can share in celebrating God's love and learning more about our Christian faith through stories, songs, drama, games and prayer. We also celebrate the traditions of other religions in order for children to become more understanding of the beliefs of others.
We promote the teaching of all the Christian values through our collective worship and through our daily teaching so that they are the foundation of our school ethos. We follow the church calendar to help lead our worship but we also take note of global events and local activities to help guide our weekly thoughts and reflections.
We are very well supported by our local church community and members of the church visit the school to lead collective worship on a regular basis. Our local church, St Leonard’s, is located a short walk from the school and we are fortunate to hold special services there every term such as Harvest, Christmas, Easter and the end of year service in July.
We also have strong links with St Michaels and All Angels church in Middlewich and we look forward to Jeremy Cole joining us in worship.
Every Thursday we acknowledge and reward the children for achievements both in and out of school, promoting the ethos of the school that all children are valued and learning is celebrated. We also encourage our working groups, Eco Council, School Council, Sports Captains, Play Leaders, Digital Leaders, and Librarians to prepare and lead our Collective Worships so that they have ownership and real feeling of value. Parents, family and friends are very welcome to attend these gatherings.
