Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Leading Lights

As a Church of England Primary School, worship plays a vital role in our daily timetable.

A number of our Year 5 and 6 pupils form a team of Leading Lights and Technicians to assist with the smooth running of our daily acts of worship.

Leading Lights work in pairs (one from Year 5 and one from Year 6): they open the worship by greeting the children and adults; choose the child or adult who will light the worship candle that day; announce the Bible reading, prayer and hymns; and then close the worship and send the classes to their learning.

Technicians also work in pairs: they are responsible for setting up the laptop and projector; playing the correct hymn at the correct time and running any presentations that are needed.

Both groups are asked to write and deliver a few worships throughout the year, and this is completed with adult support. There are also opportunities for these children to attend community events, such as the Remembrance service or special church services.

Both of these roles carry a lot of responsibility and Year 4 are asked to consider carefully whether they would like to apply for a position in the following September.

All children in Year 5 are able to apply, and those who are successful are:

  • Role models for playground behaviour
  • Role models for classroom behaviour
  • Motivated to try their best in class work

For Leading Lights:

  • Able to speak loudly and clearly

For Technicians:

  • Confident using a laptop
  • Able to troubleshoot technical issues
  • Able to think on their feet
  • The school’s Christian values of love, honesty and respect are well expressed through its caring atmosphere. This impacts positively on the strong sense of belonging and supporting relationships evident across the school.
