Prayer and Worship
Prayer and worship are integral to the Catholic life of our school. Our classroom prayer corners are maintained by pupils and reflect our Catholic identity and values along with celebrating the key events of the liturgical year.
We have three school prayers, they are:
In order to end the day in a prayerful and meditative way pupils also pray the Examen.
During the month of May and October pupils are invited to join together to pray the Rosary each morning with the headteacher. We also invite pupils and parents to contribute to our school prayer books throughout the year.
We have a whole school weekly collective worship assembly where the children are encouraged to live out the mission of the Gospel of that week. You can view our assembly overview here:
Children prepare, lead and evaluate worship including daily acts and weekly phase worship. Children also lead our school-wide acts of worship at Advent and Easter which includes praying the Stations of the Cross and celebrating the Easter story. We share these with our community on our YouTube channel and you can view the most recent recordings below:
Musical Worship takes place every week so that we can teach the children the importance of hymns in our Catholic tradition and which hymns fit into our Liturgical cycle. Children plan and lead the prayer at the beginning of these acts of collective worship.
