There is a daily act of worship in school which is wholly or mainly of a Christian nature. Our worship is linked to our school Christian Values which are promoted by our pupils, staff and community. Our Christian Values are Love, Inclusion, Guidance, Hope, Trust and Service.
Our daily act of worship lasts for approximately 15-20 minutes. We sing songs, share stories, reflect on our lives and the lives of others and give praise to God. We are supported by St Paul's Church. Faith speakers come in to school regularly to support us with our worship.
We say Grace together as a class before we eat our lunch and we also say a prayer at the end of our school day.
Parents are able to withdraw their child from our daily act of worship and a meeting with Mrs Earnshaw, our Headteacher, can be arranged to discuss this.
We have a prayer tree which we encourage children and their families to peg their prayers on to. Each week we talk about those people around the world who need our prayers and have a weekly focus for prayer.
We teach this version of the Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in Heaven
Hallowed be your name
Your Kingdom come
Your will be done,
On Earth as in Heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory
Forever and forever.
This is our school Prayer:
We give you our school.
We give you all the adults who work here,
We give you all the children who learn here.
We pray our school will be a place of great discovery, adventure and creativity.
May it be a place where we love to learn and where we learn to love,
A place where everyone is respected and all are deeply valued.
We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
