Christian Ethos

Our School

The Christian ethos is embedded in the life of our school. It is not only part of our Religious Education and our Collective Worship, but it permeates through the life of our school community. The Christian values that we promote help children to learn and grow spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, morally and socially. 

Open the Book

Open the book visit our school to lead Collective Worship once a fortnight. They are a group of local Christians from a variety of denominations. They tell us stories from the old and new testament and we love getting involved by dressing up in costumes!

WOW Group

WOW group are a group of key stage 2 children who have a voice in our school. 'WOW' stands for 'Worship Our Way'. The children work with Mrs Howman to lead, monitor, develop and improve Collective Worship in our school. They plan and deliver Collective Worship, evaluate Collective Worship, change the worship table, put up displays, write prayers, carry out questionnaires, light candles and much more!

Mass in Church

Key Stage Two have a mass every half term. The Year 6 children take it in turns to be alter servers. Year 5 write and read prayers of intercession and Year 4 lead the offertory. All children prepare artwork, songs, poems etc... on the theme of the mass to bring to the alter after the Gospel. Parents, Governors and other members of the community are invited to attend. 

Key Stage One children also visit the church for Collective worship every half term. They enjoy reflective storytelling and other less formal forms of worship. 

Reflective Areas

Each class has a reflective area in their classroom. This provides a focal point for Collective Worship in class. You will find many Christian artefacts in the worship area, along with reflections and work that the children have completed about the Christian values, bible stories, parables etc...
