At St Philip's CE Primary Academy, 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. All children and staff in school are invited to attend.
An annual programme of Collective Worship has been planned to ensure children receive a varied and theological approach to the chosen theme.
Collective worship is led by a range of people over the week: Head of School, our parish priest, Open the Book team, class teachers and the children. Revd. Chris Chorleton and Open the Book team each lead collective worship once a fortnight and we regularly invite a range of visitors to also talk to the children as part of our annual programme.
Children play a part in evaluating collective worship. Children reflect on the theme of the worship, the stories they have been told, their personal reflections and what they have taken from worship to use in their daily lives.
