Worship

Daily Collective Worship is an important part of our school day.

It is a time to join together as a community, reflect on important issues and truths, share and celebrate the life of the school and to worship together.

Daily Collective Worship is an important part of our school day. It is a time when we come together as a community, reflect on important issues and truths, share and celebrate the life of the school and worship together.

Worship is offered to God in a variety of ways – as a whole school, in Key Stage departments, class and year groups. Collective Worship follows a weekly Biblical theme and is normally led by a member of staff.  In addition, classes prepare presentations twice a year which may include drama, music and a celebration of their learning. The clergy of Holy Cross church regularly lead worship in both departments and other visitors are invited to Collective Worship during the year.

Parents/carers are invited to attend class assemblies held at school and to Infant, Junior and Whole School Mass held in Holy Cross Church.

Parents/carers will have chosen a church school for their children because of the ethos, special opportunities for worship and learning about the Christian faith. However, under the 1944 Education Act parents do have the right to withdraw children from RE and Worship.
