As a Church of England Primary school, Christian values permeate everything we do.
Our values of respect, love and honesty guide us daily in our mission to see that all pupils reach their God-given potential.
Collecting together for a daily act of worship creates a sense of belonging and gives an opportunity to develop inner stillness and thought.
Worship takes place as a whole school, in the hall, or in class groups during a usual week.
A member of the Senior Leadership Team leads worship once a week and a visiting member of one of our local churches leads another. Remaining worships are led by a member of teaching staff in the hall or the class teacher in the classroom.
All teaching staff plan the content of worship using guidance from the Diocese of Rochester, this ensures that a wider section of our school community contributes to this vital part of our day.
Pupils also play their part in worship by planning and leading on a regular basis, under the direction of an adult. Year 5 and 6 pupils may become ‘Leading Lights’, opening and closing worship, delivering Bible readings and leading the school in prayer.
During times of social distancing all worships take place in the classroom, with a remote whole-school video worship once a week.
During times of National school closures worship still continues daily with materials being shared remotely.
