Assemblies are an important time for everyone to come together and spend some quiet time in reflection and, if they choose, in prayer. They are also exciting, fun, inspirational and thought provoking. Children are given the opportunity to worship if they wish, but are expected to respect the rights of others to pray.

Parents have the right to withdraw children from worship and RE lessons but we are proud that these are inclusive and at present no parents have felt the need to do so.


Worship is broadly Christian, but assemblies include a range of faiths and festivals which reflect the multicultural nature of the school, and society, and give children a chance to experience the diverse society in which they live and understand it a little better

"The impact of collective worship on the school community is outstanding. - - acts of worship are well planned and imaginative.  There is plenty of participation and pupils respond well to questions and enjoy the occasions.  They sing spiritual songs with pleasure, and contribute to prayers not only at collective worship, but also before lunch and at the end of the day"


"The school is sensitive to the needs of pupils of faiths other than Christianity and their festivals are often covered in assembly, outside the act of worship.  Worship contributes significantly to the spiritual and moral development of all pupils."
