Parents  »  Collective Worship


All schools provide daily collective worship for registered pupils (apart from those who have been withdrawn by their parents). Daily collective worship must be wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character. The precise nature will depend on the family background, ages and abilities of the pupils.

Collective Worship/Assemblies are non-denominational and although they are of a broadly Christian nature due consideration is given to the multi-cultural and multi ethnic society in which we live. Children will have the opportunity to experience festivals and religions from other cultures throughout the school year through themed topic work

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from religious education and collective worship should they so wish. If parents do not wish their child to be taught the agreed syllabus or take part in short acts of collective worship they should inform us in writing for consideration by the Head teacher.

We celebrate important Christian festivals including Christmas and Easter with our friends at St Andrews Church and invite many guests to our school assembly.
