The aim of collective worship is to encourage children and the wider school community to reflect on their own spiritual beliefs. Our collective worship leaders contribute by planning and making decisions about collective worship in our school. Whenever we meet, we always say a prayer and then discuss a particular issue.
Some of the decisions we have made have impacted collective worship across the school, such as learning and recording the Lord's prayer with actions, voting for songs with actions and having a greater involvement of children such as having prayers written by children in collective worship. In our last meeting, the Year 6 collective worship leaders put together a plan for who and when each leader will lead the 'greeting' and 'sending out' responses in collective worship. The year 6 will remind the other collective worship leaders that it is their turn each week.
In March, we went on a conference to Knowle Parish Church to meet and share ideas with other collective worship leaders from other schools.
These are our collective worship leaders. We range from Year 1 to Year 6.
