Collective worship is an important part of our day as it is a time for reflection and for gathering together. We offer pupils, irrespective of age, gender, race or disability, the opportunity to gather together to hear words, watch drama, look at visual aids, experience prayer and quiet reflection time which may lead them to take the threshold of worship. Our worship is appropriate to the ages and background of the pupils.
Collective worship at St. George’s is based on the Christian year. Festivals from other religions are also discussed to give the children a broad and balanced view of world religions. We also use a termly list of themes, based on the following home/school values:
Parents are kept informed of our term’s home / school value through activity sheets which are sent out at the beginning of each term. These sheets are available by clicking on the links below.
