Collective Worship is a statutory requirement for all Church of England schools in England and Wales. At Longstone C of E Primary School, Collective Worship is so much more than this. It is a time when the school family meets together, learns together, reflects together, a time within which children and staff can be still, engage and if they feel called, respond.
Our Daily Collective Worship sessions are planned around a 4 yearly cycle and each week is based around a theme building upon core Christian Values.
We are currently in Summer Term of Cycle A
As a school we feel it is important to have a focal prayer point for the whole school community to engage with. Currently, we are in progress in developing an outside prayer garden in partnership with our parent community.
Each class has an interactive spiritual display and reflection area, often linked to the term’s worship theme. Children really enjoy having the opportunity to respond to these areas. They are a place where the children can come to wonder, reflect and pray.
