Our collective worship reflects and reinforces the schools, vision aims and ethos;
'Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their life.' (Proverbs 22:6).
Collective worship both implicitly, and explicitly, demonstrates our Christian values of Love, Honesty, Kindness, Respect, Courage, Empathy and Integrity. Worship will reflect the variety of traditions found in the Church of England, and will recognise and follow the Christian liturgical year. The daily Christian act of worship is central to our ethos and is supported by all staff and governors.
At St Lawrence C of E Primary School, we consider collective worship to be an important part of the school day. An opportunity to reflect and develop the school’s distinctive Christian character but also an opportunity to contribute to the academic achievement, personal development and well-being of pupils and staff and celebrates the contribution that each makes to our community.
There are various forms of Worship and these are timetabled so that pupils experience Whole School, Key Stage, Class Lead and Pupil Lead Worship each week. We follow the Guildford Diocese Guidelines for the weekly themes for Whole School Worship.
