Collective Worship

“Shine as lights in the world”

We hold daily acts of Collective Worship, which are underpinned by our Christians Values and Jesus' teaching of the city on a hill shining it's light in the world. Matthew 5:14-16.

The pattern of Collective Worship is:

Monday -         Whole Collective Worship led by Head or Deputy Head Teacher

Tuesday -        KS1 Collective Worship/ KS2 class Collective Worship

Wednesday -   KS2 Collective Worship/ KS1 class Collective Worship

Thursday -      Whole School Collective Worship led by Rev. Anthony Howells from The Church on Fairford Leys

Friday -           Whole School Collective Worship and Celebration Assembly

Collective Worship is planned by our Distinctive Ethos Lead. She meets with the Worship Leaders each half term to discuss which value will be the focus for the next half term. As a Church of England school we follow the Litergical Calendar and celebrate each of the Christian festivals. We also learn about festivals from other faiths over a two year cycle. Children and parents are encouraged to participate in Collective Worship by sharing how they celebrate their festivals; helping to foster understanding and respect of each others differences and similarities.

Special Collective Worship Services

During the academic year all classes visit one of the local churches, either as part of their RE topic or for a service. The Church on Fairford Leys has close links with the school and is within easy walking distance. Links are also fostered with our namesake St Mary's,  Aylesbury and Granville Street Church.

The services include Harvest Festival, Remembrance, Christmas Carols, Christingle, Easter and Leaver's Services.
