About Collective Worship

Prayer and Worship at Sacred Heart

The daily act of Collective Worship at our school  plays a central role in our life and work. It offers important opportunities to strengthen our sense of community, belonging and inclusiveness and to reinforce the respect and care we have for each other.

Through Collective Worship we make a significant contribution to the religious, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of those present.

Our daily acts of collective worship are planned to give everyone a variety of experiences to develop spirituality through reflection as well an understanding of Christianity and aspects of other faiths and cultures. They enable us to reflect on and respond to things which we as a school community believe are important in preparing children to be responsible citizens now and in the future.

On Mondays our Key Stages come together and worship together.

On Tuesdays Mrs Roach leads a whole school Gospel assembly and Jesley our school council Parish representative leads us in prayer.

On Wednesdays we come together as a class and worship through the use of the Wednesday Word.

Thursdays and Fridays are times when each class will worship together.

Our Collective Worship room is a special place for us where we come together as a school family to worship or where we enjoy quiet time for reflection.

Each class teacher plans and leads key stage or class Collective Worship and they set themes based on the liturgical year and Come and See. Children have the opportunity to plan, deliver and evaluate our acts of worship


Each child will have the opportunity to take part in Collective Worship each day.  Parents may be invited to attend and they have the right to withdraw their child from Collective Worship.
