Collective Worship

Collective Worship 
 
As a Church of England school, we have a daily act of collective worship in which we read stories which tie in closely to our six Christian values. Sometimes these stories are from the Bible and sometimes they are from other faiths or they are stories that help us explore a value or a moral. Worship is led by the school's senior leadership team, our local 'Open the Book' team (accompanied by Y5 children from Elm class) and our vicar, Sarah Bick. During worship we sing songs and hymns and we also have the opportunity for reflection and quiet thought. 
 
Additionally, we celebrate the children's achievements. Every Friday we enjoy a celebration worship in which we recognise those children who, for many reasons, have excelled in their learning and have demonstrated our core Christian values throughout the school week. 
Prayer Spaces
 
At St. John’s we aim to create an environment where children are given space and time to reflect and pray in their own personal way. The school encourages children and adults to offer prayers at different times of the church year and within the school year .
