Collective Worship

Collective worship at Colnbrook is a special and sacred time that we celebrate together daily as a school community. It is a time to pause, reflect and focus on our school vision and values.

Worship is planned each half term with a focus on one of our school values. We encourage pupils to play an active role in acts of worship and they are often invited to lead prayers, share thoughts and read Bible verses. Children also help shape the planning of our worship and staff regularly seek feedback from pupils.

Our collective worship begins by lighting a candle to mark the time as special and to acknowledge that God is present. Children are given the opportunity to discuss current topics, listen to and reflect on stories from the Bible and join in with prayers.

At Colnbrook, our worship is Christian based, but it is inclusive of all. Whether children have a faith or not, each individual is respected and given opportunities to express themselves in a way that makes them feel most comfortable.

Our daily collective worship is led either by a class teacher, a member of the senior leadership team or our local parish vicar, Father Darcy.

We regularly visit St. Thomas’s Church throughout the year to celebrate festivals including Harvest, Christmas and Easter. We also visit the church throughout the year to use the quiet garden and celebrate class saints days.

Sometimes we have our collective worship on our woodland walk.
