Collective Worship

At St John the Evangelist CE Primary School, our daily act of collective worship is an important part of the day when we gather as a school community to reflect, think and pray. It is a time when we think about our school values and promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children.

Collective worship is led by a range of people over the week. Sometime we gather altogether as a whole school, sometimes in Key Stages and sometimes as year groups. Reverend Blakey also leads collective worship once a fortnight and we are fortunate to be able to invite a range of visitors to also talk to the children as part of our annual programme.

Children play an active part in collective worship. Each term two classes will lead worship, reflecting on the value for the term, the stories they have been told and what they have taken from worship and used in their daily lives.
