Collective Worship Policy for St.Margaret Mary’s Catholic Infant School.
Collective worship in St. Margaret Mary’s Catholic Infant School is the coming together of children and staff for the purpose of worshipping, praising, thanking, celebrating and deepening our relationship with God.
The school has a Catholic foundation and therefore, whilst respecting diversity of belief and commitment, it reflects and follows the traditions of the Church and has Christ at its heart.
The worship includes all those who seek to explore and deepen their spiritual beliefs, enabling all members of the community to express and reflect their shared understanding.
All children are involved and are given an opportunity to respond in an act of daily worship. This gives all involved, time to contemplate the mystery of God, the wonder of life and to draw us closer to God. On these occasions children are given opportunities to participate, to reflect and to respond.
Aims for Collective Worship.
Objectives for Collective Worship.
Organisation for Collective Worship.
The Headteacher and Leadership Team establish arrangements for Collective Worship, in consultation with the staff and Governing Body.
The Headteacher will ensure that Collective Worship is provided each day for each child.
It will feature on every class timetable in class, year group or whole school gatherings.
The Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher or a member of the Leadership Team will lead worship for larger groups.
In class, the Class Teacher or a group of pupils will usually lead Collective Worship.
Resourcing Collective Worship is achieved largely through the R.E budget. Resources are too many to list.
Guidelines for the delivery of Collective Worship.
Every effort will be made to ensure that frequent discussion and revisiting of the Collective worship Policy will take place in order to develop fully our Faith Community. This is a continuous process requiring a close partnership between teachers and pupils and the involvement of others as appropriate.
The governing body will review this policy annually and any amendments, which may be deemed to be necessary, will be made accordingly.
