Collective Worship

The Importance of Collective Worship at Calverley CE

At Calverley CE we believe that collective worship and sharing time together is a crucial part of our broader school life. Worship is carried out four times a week with the other being a ‘celebration’ awards worship. Children will also be involved in collective worship in their classrooms. These acts of collective worship will reflect the vision, values and aims of our school.

The acts of Worship are led by either the Headteacher, Deputy Head or a Class Teacher and on a Tuesday morning by either our vicar, Rev Phil, or members of the local Christian community. On occasions we may also have visitors come in to deliver and share Worship with us, for example John Froud from the Zephaniah Trust – a local Christian charity.

Collective Worship Plan

The main themes for collective worship in school are based upon the twelve Christian values chosen by the whole school community and the Liturgical Calendar.  We will focus upon one Christian Value per half term over a two-year cycle.

More information on weekly themes can by found in the document list to the right of this screen.

Right to withdraw

Parents are entitled to withdraw their child from Collective Worship if they wish, however, we urge parents considering this option to speak with the Headteacher, prior to the admission of their child into our school.
