Collective Worship




    Spratton School Prayer

    This is our school

    Let peace dwell here.

    Let the rooms be full of contentment.

    Let love abide here, love of one another,

    Love of mankind, love of life itself, and love of God.

    Let us remember that as many hands build a house,

    So many hearts make a school.


    We enjoy a range of different Collective Worship formats every week.

    These include:

    • Celebration Worship (recognise successes in all areas of learning and development in character and celebrate them publicly)
    • Collective Worship led by Rev Allison Twigg 
    • Sing and Praise
    • The Uplands Group 'Open The Book' team lead Collective Worship through Bible Stories, Drama and Music. 



      In all the various forms of Collective Worship, we encourage the development of:


    • Biblical knowledge and messages from the Bible
    • the school’s Christian ethos and values
    • being effective Global Citizens an good neighbours  

     Collective Worship gives us the opportunity to:

    • Engage in an act of community.
    • Express praise and thanksgiving to God.
    • Be still and reflect.
    • Explore the big questions of life and respond to national events.
    • Foster respect and deepen spiritual awareness.
    • Reflect on the character of God and on the teachings of Christ.
    • Affirm Christian values and attitudes.
    • Share each other's joys and challenges.
    • Celebrate special times in the Christian calendar.  

    Our Collective Worship is a special part of our school day and is inclusive, invitational and inspiring in accordance with the principles and practices of the Church of England. All children take part in daily Collective Worship which provides everyone with the opportunity to worship God, consider spiritual and moral issues and to explore their own beliefs. We encourage participation and response through listening to and joining in the worship offered.

    Parents/Carers who wish to withdraw their child from Collective Worship have the right to do so under the Education Reform Act 1988. Please discuss this with the Head of School.
