In Church of England schools, collective worship reflects the traditions of the Church of England and develops learners' understanding of Anglican traditions and practice.
Many schools work with the local vicar and other church members to plan and deliver acts of worship that are invitational, reflective and engaging. There is plenty of flexibility in the provision of collective worship to enable all pupils to benefit without compromising their beliefs.
Collective worship gives pupils and school staff the opportunity to:
ENGAGE IN AN ACT OF COMMUNITY
EXPRESS PRAISE & THANKSGIVING TO GOD
EXPLORE LIFE'S BIG QUESTIONS
FOSTER RESPECT & DEEPEN SPIRITUAL AWARENESS
REFLECT ON THE CHARACTER OF GOD & THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS
AFFIRM CHRISTIAN VALUES & ATTITUDES
SHARE IN EACH OTHER'S JOYS & CHALLENGES
